Rufus was so lucky to find you, as all ratties are, and I was just so glad you gave him a loving and comforting life with you. How wonderful it must have been when he finally decided you were a good human and to trust you.
A handsome gent was Rufus (and I love the name) and he had such a good life once you found him. He is a lucky boy. Play hard handsome Rufus. We loves you.
Now I can say I have been through 200 personal losses (my wikispaces site says 202 but I never met Nameless Nakie and Moxie in person, they just affected me and deserved memorials).
More coming too...Flower, Cesar, Dexter, Galileo, the 4 remaining halfie girls, Oscar and Tommy (Loki's brothers), etc.
I am also taking in 4 more oldies this weekend. One girl at 23 months old, and 3 girls between 2-2.5 years old with respiratory, tumours and a slow growing PT for the one. Can't wait to meet and cuddle them!! :lol:
He looks like my rat Butters. it's hard when they pass. I hate breeders who just breed to breed!! I had a rat who had the best personality but didn't make it a full year because the breeder was only interested in color.
