Poppy, last of the Train Rats - Jan. ’08 to Sept. 14 ‘10

The Party Girls from Moncton started their journey in Moncton, NB and ended it in my home in Toronto, ON. They were named this after hearing how Jane/smallvic described them when they did a stop overnight in Montreal at her home. She said they were hilarious and would keep me on my toes. Was she ever right!! But soon after arriving the Party Girls became the Moncton Monsters. They were rubbers and body checkers of EVERYTHING. Out time was a nerve-wracking experience with crashes every few minutes…by the time they were supposed to go back in their cage I had had enough and still had to pick up after their joyful mayhem. They were true characters and very opinionated. Poppy was my favourite of the whole crew with her cheeky but friendly attitude.

“Yeah Mom, don’t worry I am not gonna fall!”


Poppy in the middle of her sisters and under her hefty friend Pea LOL


Poppy developed a big fast-growing tumor that was removed in November 2009


Once that tumour was removed, all those nutrients got packed onto her


She developed her cataracts soon after as well


The fur on her surgical site never really grew back, the HED kicked in, but it still didn’t stop her. Timmy knew who was boss here!


I would put a cube or a pocket hammock on the bed for my old lady, and she would brux and boggle happily


She liked Pez and they spent Pez’s last days together. Now this time around Pocky (Pez’s sister) was the one spending time with Poppy.





11 days ago, old and feeble but very bright


It was her time, and she lived her life to the fullest from province to province, The last of my Train Rats…end of a very special time in my life.

Be with your family PopPop, I shall look for you when it’s my time.

So sorry, lilspaz. It breaks my heart to read all of these so close together, and I know it must be hard. I know for a fact that those little girls were all so happy to live with such a caring, devoted mom. You should be so proud. Rest in peace, all of you.

Oh Lilspaz, I am so sorry....that photo tribute made me tear up and I got such a lump in my throat...what a special lady Poppy was, so full of life and spunk, and like Breyer said, it is such a great feeling to see ratties who live such wonderful, fun, and happy comfortable lives with such a caring Mom. I know your girls are playing together right now at their special place, forever a family, and yes, you will see all of them again someday. We love you little girls!
