Hi to any who read and respond to this. I live in Tampa Bay Florida. We had a rat problem in the attic. My father bought poision to get rid of them. (which I dont agree with) Well the adult rats died so the baby rats started comming down for food and water. Me and my girlfriend caught 2 at first. The first one was dying from poision. I did everything I could to help her, but she died. The second one seemed great. Full of energy. Well last weekeknd at 1pm she was fine. When we checked on her at 5 she was dead. 3 days ago I caught a 3rd baby rat in the kitchen. She seemed so full of life when I caught her. I had a huge plastic bin I used as a cage. I put water in it. I tried to feed her grapes and cheese but she would not eat that.. so I heated up some milk with a little sugar in it and she loved it. For 2 days she drank the milk. I made sure not to over feed her. Then last night she stopped eating. An at 8:17 this morning she died in my hands. She was breathing really hard and then like flipped over and stopped breathing. I was so and am still very upset. Why would she die like that? She was pooping and peeing ok. When I first caught her she was very scared. I tried to keep her stress at a minimum. Last night she was doing so well. She would let me pick her up.. she really liked being pet under her ear. She would eve close her eye as I pet her ear. I named her Zoe. I feel so responsible that she died. Can anyone tell me why she would die so suddenly like that? It so funny how I got so attached to that little rat in just a few days. But I can honestly say I loved the little girl.
