Today we had to say goodbye to our sweet girl Sadie
Sadie was already a bit ill for a few days (she was old, two years it's old for her breed)
She died in my arms this morning
I'm happy for her I was there with her but it was very difficult for me, one moment I hugged her and the next moment she suddenly died… Maybe she was waiting for the moment she sat with one of us..
Maybe some of you think, it's just a rat but also a rat is a very sweet and loving pet...
Goodbye girl, we miss you already very much..
Sadie was our 12th rat, we had rats for over ten years.
From males to females, re-homed rats, petstore rats and rats from the university (were Janneke is studying)
The two oldest rats became 6 years old, both came from the university.
The first one I took with me when I worked there, Diesell was his name.
The second one , Morris, I got from a great family that got ALL the rats that were used at the university (those rats that were castrated by students)
Sadie only turned two years, it's old for her breed.
I don't know how you call her breed in English but in Dutch you say Dumbo (rats with BIG ears and have a nicer caracter)
sigh… I'm feeling very sad...
When I sat with Sadie, Buana and Chafuko came to sit next to me.
Normally they try to sniff her out the whole time but this time they just let their faces at my lap... very sweet
