Hey, Guys!!! There have been some serious developments in the world of my rat pack! First of all, I may have mentioned her at some point, but there are a few new additions to the group. The first being Gypsy. I’ve had her for a while I just haven’t found the time to post about her. She’s a big albino squish rat with a little brown on her ears, nose, and the base of her tail (I know, not strictly albino). The other two newbies I’ll get to later. First of all, Iris has passed. She had cancer and a respiratory disease. This is why we got the first of the two new comers. Her name is Bailey. She is a brown berkshire (another term for the kind of markings on a rat, meaning one color except for a little white pattern on her belly). We got her while Iris was still alive so that she could have some time to settle in. We had no idea that Iris would pass just days after adopting Bailey. We thought everything was fine andy dandy until out of the blue Iris got extremely sick and died thursday morning. Angel, out of all of them, was grieving the hardest. Or at least that’s what we thought. She too got very sick and we took her to the vet immediately. the vet told us that she had a respiratory disease that causes hard nodules in the lungs that can bust open and release a flood of bacteria in times of stress (like a cage mate dying). She was prescribed with three meds and one precautionary one for the other two. Later that night we tried to give her a treat but she leapt up my dad’s arm instead of taking it. And she stayed there until my dad had to put her back in the cage. Later that night she died. And yesterday was the day that we got the third new rat. her name is Atlas and she is a black hooded (again, a term for markings). That’s pretty much all of it. See you later.

A little bit of spring for everybody!!!

Kira, my baby, is no longer with us. Bless her soul. She died a little less than a month ago. I just haven’t been able to do this until now.
When I first adopted her she was terrified of anybody. I could hardly catch her to hold her. When she was about 6 months She started going bald on her front arms. I didn’t think much of it but I started getting worried when they didn’t get any better. The vet said that she was to stressed from the other ratties picking on her. By then both Sierra’s and Lizzie’s cancer was pretty far along so I got Angel and Iris. They didn’t get along well with Liz so I put them in the big cage with Kira and put LizzieBear and Sierra in the smaller one. They stayed like that for a while before I was able to put them all back together. Not long after that I had to put Sierra and Lizzie down. Kira, Iris and Angel were as happy as can be when Kira’s lung problems started up again. Not long after that she passed.
She was a wonderful rat. I spent all my free time with her in my lap when things got grim. She usually fell asleep. All her fear disappeared. She looked so peaceful. One night she just stopped breathing. After about ten minutes her heart stopped. She died in my arms and I swear to god that if I didn’t know any better I would have said she was still asleep. I guess she was. Just a different kind of sleep. I buried her next to Liz and Sierra.
RIP, Baby. I love you. May you never be afraid again.

Update

Hey guys, I really don’t know if anyone is still reading. I know I haven’t been keeping up with my posts. I just thought I’d update you on what has been going on. First order of business, Kira ain’t doin to good. She’s still week and can’t wash her self effectively. Second, SCHOOL’S OUT!!!!! I am almost in SEVENTH GRADE!!!! OH YEAH!!!!! WHOOOOO!!!! Third… well…. uh….. those are kinda of the big things right now. Just thought I should try to post. I’ll try to do pic of the week tomorrow. Sorry I missed so many.

Sorry I missed a week. I just haven’t had time to even think about my blog. I was really busy with friends this weekend and last week Kira got sick. Her breathing get really bad again and she’s so week she can’t even hold up her food. I’ve been having to hold it for her. She’s also been getting a lot of meds. The vet said that if she didn’t improve over the weekend we may have to consider “other options”. She hasn’t improved. Anyway, in her honor the pic of the week will be…

Her at her prime.
Love ya Kira! ❤

After you read this I bet you all will be like “Holy crap! I can’t believe she just said that!” Well I did. Here it goes.
I really want to end world suffering for two main reasons. One, no one deserves to suffer. Two, pitying people is hard! I’m going to mostly talk about the second one. I don’t mean hard as in it being hard to do, I mean hard as in you can’t help but feel bad for people and when you do it’s really taxing! I can’t help but feel really really horrible when I see even a hobo on the street. I feel like if I have all this nice stuff they should have it all too! All that pity really brings me down, you know? Why can’t everyone have all the same stuff so that nobody has to feel bad about having more. I know that’s really selfish but what can I say? Suffering is depressing for everybody.
I just had to get that out of my system. See ya! 😉

In school I’m doing a project on how people wrote in ancient times. I finished the paper but now I have to do a presentation on it!! I’m gonna make a prezi (kinda like a power point). I just figured out that I’m gonna do a prezi but I don’t have the paper with me and I have to make the presentation correspond with the paper. I can’t even get on my server because there’s an effing firewall in the way! So guess what. I have to redo the whole paper and then do the presentation! I can’t do anything else today because I have Sunday school and then I have to stay up all night to write. And the whole thing is due tomorrow!!!!! I’M SO PISSED AT MYSELF!!!!!! *Sigh*

A… Departure.

I used to think I wanted to be a vet. The problem is that the animals never seem to like the vet. Your always either poking and prodding them or giving them shots or, in the worst cases, killing them. Tomorrow, both Sierra and Lizzy are going to be euthanized. I do not think they are leading happy lives at this point. Sierra is lethargic and has difficulty breathing due to her advanced cancer. God, do I sound formal. I’m making this post much darker than it needs to be! Anyway, she’s always starving because, in effect, she’s feeding an ever-growing tumor. It’s almost half her size now. The same thing with Lizzy. Only her’s gives her much more difficulty walking and, I believe, has made her lose control of her bladder. She can’t “hold it” anymore. The poor baby. I’ll post more tomorrow. I just thought you guys should know. See ya.
