Unhappy The most heartbreaking image...

Last night after I returned home from a friend's house,I went to do my ratty routine and found my beloved Cinnamon dead in her nest.What was even more heartbreaking and sad,was her cagemate and daughter Milky was sprawled over her mom's body and very unresponsive.Later that night Milky also passed away.


I am very heartbroken...two rats in one night is extremely hard.Both girls were very healthy,suprising for their age.No tumors or anything.Cinnamon was just about 3 yrs old and Milky was 1 yr (not old at all).Because they were healthy,I assume Cinnamon's age took her and it was obvious Milky grieved to death.


I adopted these girls from a "breeder" who was simply "making room" for new babies on December 31st 2008...so I only had them a few months.Milky was blind in one eye (since birth apparently) - but it didn't affect her.The happy girlies were always together and if I took one girl out,the other one had to come.They were very bonded and would stress out if not together.


I will miss these beautiful,happy girls.And am glad I could love them for their last months...but it pains me that they both went within hours of eachother.And to anyone who thinks rats don't bond with eachother,this is proof...R.I.P my sweet girls.





This picture was from the first day I got them.

Oh hon, I'm so sorry. This breaks my heart. I know how strong animals can bond. We had a dog nearly mourn himself to death over the loss of his long time buddy. Find comfort in the knowledge that you gave them the best few months of their lives-you know you did. You're an awesome mommy to your babies and they love you dearly for that.I am so sorry you have to go through such a devastating loss.

Thanks...
I wasn't expecting it either.Cinnamon was slowing down alot and did lose abit of weight,but it wasn't anything to worry about.So I was very suprised,but I knew it would happen.Although I didn't even think both of them would go together! I am all cried out now...don't think I have anymore tears - I am all dried up.
