Missing “The Baby”

We adopted Inspector Lestrade from a shelter. Someone had found him wandering outside an apartment building and recognizing that he was a pet rat, turned him in to the shelter. There he suffered the loss of part of his tail when a ferret bit it.

When i met him at the shelter we fell in love. He sat on my shoulder and was as sweet as can be. I adopted him and believe it or not we had him for only one year. In that time he became my best friend. It’s funny to say since he was “just a rat”, but he was the most loving creature, giving endless kisses and coming when he was called. He was the best pet I ever had and always cheered me when I was down. He lightened any mood and brought pleasure to all my household members everyday and we started calling him “The Baby”.

I really miss him!
