First I lost Poppy. She died suddenly about 3 months ago, which unfortunately is very common with ratties. Especially females who are often born with tumours.
Then today after a few days of a bad respiratory infection and antibiotics and a lot of tender loving care, little Coco had to be taken to the vet to be put to sleep. It has broken my heart. Shattered it.
These little creatures are so loving and so receptive to our love and attention. They are intelligent and cheeky. They are tiny compared to us but are so willing to trust us and love us as one of their own. They are just like a tiny teeny dogs, and yet millions are still killed and tested on in labs around the world when it has been proven testing makeup and drugs on animals is not applicable to humans. duh
RIP my little angels, I will miss you, your cheekiness, your love and your cuddles xxxx
