Hoochy–Brave Girl Has Gone-Feb. 2008 – Jan. 16, 2010

Arrival on Oct. 28/09 (with her friend Tika)


A few hours later after a shot of steroid, fluids and gentocin


Evening of Oct. 29/09


Oct. 30, starting to do some serious moving around


And then she took off!
Oct. 31 – in the low hanging hammock already


Dec. 17 – Someone’s gained weight! I figured she had a stroke initially and weaned her off the dex therapy


Poor little bubber injures her foot on Dec. 23…she just kept staring at the Christmas tree, wanting to climb in it, but knew she couldn’t climb in it then. She and Tika had to be separated at this point, but Hoochy was happier with this arrangement while she healed.


January 1 – aging fast but still so bright and lovely


January 8 – I “reintroduced” Tika and Hoochy (put them back together like they had never been apart) and they had 2 good days together.


Evening of January 10th, she has another stroke…she comes back a little, but not enough.

She passed this morning at 5 am sleeping peacefully beside Kittie and I (another PT girl).

She got her reprieve the first time around and didn’t waste a second. She ran, climbed and explored unless she was asleep. Most of her last weeks were spent on my bed, sleeping in my spare pillow case. She would visit me every morning, DEMANDING her breakfast.
My brave “miracle” girl is gone, but her gentle courageous soul will be remembered for a very long time. That bright little face peeking out of the hammock, and her throwing herself at me for her breakfast, following me from room to room when I wasn’t fast enough…lying on my chest trying to get me to wake up to SERVE her. Goodbye Hoochy girl.

I'm sorry for your loss.
She's a really cute rat!

After a few days of first getting her, she already looked way better
A happy rat

I think you are in the wrong place buddy.
You are the weirdest cat I ever seen.
Now matter how big or small wierd or normal we or animals may be we can learn to love and get along and love is what makes it all worth wild. Becuase Beautie is in the eye of the beholder an no one is ugly or more prettyer then anything eals we are all equal. There are some ugly people and things but that is becuase man kind makes them this way do to thier actions.
