Daph got sick and I had taken her to the vet. I was told it sounded like pneumonia and to save money he wouldn’t do an x-ray. Everyday I wish I’d done that x-ray so I knew how much time I had left with her. Daphne was refusing food and started dropping weight fast. We had to force feed her. I took her to the vet 2 more times.She was even taken off the meds because her lungs sounded better. This week her health dropped again.She wouldn’t even swallow food we had to force feed her. I took her to the vet again. Almost immediately they felt a tumor. All this time Daphne had a j shaped tumor in her stomach. The cancer had made its way to her lungs. That was her “pneumonia”. We put her down during that visit. All she wanted to do was get in my hoodie one last time but couldn’t make it. She collapsed on my chest and died shortly after.
This all happened within a month. She was a healthy happy little rat. She would have been with us longer. She was the sweetest little baby. I wish she could have had more berries towards the end of her life. She deserved to have mad so much more.

I love you Daphne <3

I'm so very sorry for your loss. Daphne is a beautiful little soul and sweetness radiates from her. I understand the depth of your sorrow. Please believe me when I tell you your separation is temporary, your love is eternal. Comfort and strength coming to you.
