Sad times December 23, 2008

Well, Christmas is nearly upon us, and unfortunately it is tainted a little bit with fear over our poor rat.

Tilly, the amusing little munchkin who has kept us company for 1 and a half years, seems to be on her way out. We have no idea why, but I suspect a stroke could be the root cause. I always worried something like this would happen, as she has had a small black patch in her eye since 6 months which I have always worried about. Now, although being dosed up on antibiotics and antiinflammitaries, she doesn’t seem to be any better, just flopping around her cage, eating whipped cream (the best stuff to feed ill and thin rats, as it tastes good AND builds up their fat reserves) and generally looking (justifiably) sorry for herself. We desperately want to her to survive, as we love her very very much, but somehow we think it is unlikely.

Spare a moment to cross your fingers for our little baby.
