My Beloved Finni

I got Finni from Petco five months ago. She really appealed to me because she ran up to me from the container they kept her in. We bonded over the weeks and we even took her to the beach with us! I love and still love her so very much she was my world. My dog, Goldie, bonded with her as well. They were best of friends. Then last night, I discovered that she was unusually cold and the color was drained from her ears and feet. She was puffed out( almost looked swollen). She wouldn’t open her eyes past half way. This morning, I woke up to find her in the same comdition. I held her close and prayed that she would pull through. After 30 minutes, I picked her up to take her back to her cage. She then started to shake and and thrash about the place. Then, like that, my beloved Finni scampered off to heaven. I’ve cried and cried and cried. She was my first rat. I guess that everything has their time to go and hers was today. I’m most definitely going to get another rat. I don’t know how long to wait before I get another, any comments would be very helpful. Hold your rats close and enjoy everyday their alive.

Best regards,
