Declan was one of 6 young boys that came from Montreal and a very nasty hoarding situation. These rats needed homes ASAP and were tossed together in pairs, carriers labeled, and shipped off. Somehow I ended up with them when I was supposed to only be getting 2 girls (the girls ended up having goolies LOL)

Arrival


A very nervous boy


Eventually they were all neutered except for one but being such a nervous boy Declan ended up staying. I decided what the heck, lets try him with these 2 new girls I got in. He was completely hornswaggled and was completely taken over by these young, tiny females. The love affair was a lovely one to watch. :heart: :heart:

Declans little Family, Lia and Frankie…he never had a say about anything once they entered his life.


Losing his snap-inn to his girls…he was bemused but never complained


Young Frankie trying to show a nervous Declan not to worry


Declan loved the abuse he received…


An older boy now, with chronic respiratory issues and hind end weakness.


A very old fellow now, with bad HED, and his lungs worsening


Breakfast with his last family, whom he very much enjoyed.


We tried a new treatment for his respiratory issues and it gave him a short reprieve. Today I woke up early, took one look at him and decided it was time to take him in. Frankie was beside him cuddling like she used to, she knew as well it was time.


Good journey my man, all your brothers await you as well as little Lia your favourite girl in the whole wide world. I shall miss you bright-eyes. :(

Actually he loved his rat girls much more than me...I was a very distant second in his affections, but seeing him so happy (and hen-pecked) was good enough for me :D

Lilspaz,
Thank you for posting these pictures of what looked to be a very content and happy Declan with his harem of two. I am so sorry to hear about this, but as we all know, it is always so much better for the rats when we know they are with all of their buddies and pain free, breathing easy and having fun in the next life, and harder for us people left back and missing them. Declan was a beautiful boy and I am so happy he had such a loving home with his girlfriends. Just priceless photos. I can see how the girls just loved having him for a roommate and so happy to know he had such loving company with them. I am sure my boys have already introduced themselves to Declan as well as all your other babies. I am sure they are all having a wonderful time together. :yes:

:hugg2: :hugg2: So sorry to hear about this loss, lilspaz. He sure did live a nice, long life--especially after everything he went through in the beginning. What a great thing you did for him, and continue to do for all your furry kids. :)
