Vinnie & Fred

Vinnie my oldest male, at just over 2 1/2 years old, has started to lose function in his hind legs, so we've decided to house him with Truffle-who cannot be housed in anything with bars, or a level, bless his little "special" soul.
Fred, a rescue, and unsure of his age, who is turning grey at the muzzle, is getting cataracts and slowing down a bit as well, but he is doing much better at getting around than Vinnie, even if he does take some convincing to come out for a chat and a snuggle + treat, hes an old man, and set in his ways.

One of my girls, Raquelle also has two mammary tumors that look like testicles. Deedle Jr, and Baby D both have greying muzzles and slowing down. They are both from the same litter as Vinnie. Poor old fogies!

I am SO glad your rats have a caring and loving person to take care of them and provide for their special needs. Bless your heart. Please send us pictures next time you can.

You will always be with me, my sweet boys. I will see you at the Bridge.
