Mom is sad. This is a late entry, but last Fri mom had to put to sleep one of her pet rats, Spud (Tater). He had cancer and had lost the use of both rear legs and at that point mom said it was time.
I could really care less. Heck, I could have put him out of his misery, he would have made a good snack (shhhhhh.......don't tell mom).
I think Posey is missing him though. She used to play "hide and seek" with him. They would poke each other thru the cage bars. Sunny doesn't do that with her.
Mom brought his body home so we could all smell him and understand. Sunny, his brother, mom thinks he already knew Tater was dying so he didn't really react to his body. Gunther, Nigel and Posey though were very interested in him. I say, if you've seen one dead body, you've seen them all. :P
Mom will bury him in the spring, along with his brother, as Sunny also has cancer and will probably be needing to be put to sleep in another few months as well.
