I have a very sad story to tell
when i lost my rattie toto.
I remember when i first went into their room novo and toto's room, and toto was making a really weird noise i thought he was sneezing and i went over and lifted him out and he stopped. But then when he was out running around with his brother he just got out of breath to quickly and novo knew this because he would stop and go and see if his brother was ok. So i left him for a few days, i just thought he was acting up or maybe feeling a wee bit ill. A few days later his breathing got really weird like a whistling noise it was as if he was choking sometimes, so i sat for about 3 hrs trying to find a vet that would look at him no luck
! Noone here in northern ireland loooks at rats, i sat with my baby for around 3 hrs and put him to bed, and went into check on him in the morning..
he was just laying there breathing HEAVILY novo was cuddled up to him my boy looked as if he was starved to death he was so scruffy and pale, i tried to lift him out but novo wouldnt let me, when i got him out i phoned round all the vets and got one who gave me antibiotics.. about a half day later he got really bad, i sat and nursed my baby for about 2 hrs because i knew it would probally be the last time i would see his little whiskers tickle my cheek, i just sat there staring at him and watching novo prance about like a little toddler around the room and i could see toto wanting to join him but he was too weak. I took him to the vets when my bf arrived home and the vet took us right in and as soon as the vet took a look at him his face dropped he told us that he was to far gone that he was semi consious, that to let him go would be the best thing
the vet took him out the door and came back in and told me he passed away quickly i just broke down into shock i was screaming the vet was really shocked at my reactions but i could tell he felt really sorry.
And you wanna know what make me smile tho ? even tho i knew he was passing over? on the way to the vets in the car all he done was brux, and that was the first time EVER i had heard him do that
