Pets aren't fashion accessories. They aren't status symbols. Small puppies turn into big dog. Animals, and all those with complex social needs like dogs, live, breathe, think and feel so sending them to the pound is like putting an innocent man in death row. If you can't look after an animal for its entire natural life then don't get any. </rant>

We took Jasmine, our oldest little one, to our vet yesterday who confirmed what we had feared: Jasmine has a Zymbal's gland tumour and her days with us are drawing to a close. In the next two or so days her condition will decline to a point where it's unfair to her to prolong her life.
This isn't a complete shock. We knew this day was coming and taking her to see Richard last night was really to make sure that we weren't delaying her inevitable departure too long and causing her pain and upset. But still, it's always a blow and the sorrow I have feels like my heart is being torn apart.
Jasmine is a very courageous and headstrong girl. She has never let her increasing disabilities hold her back. Even though she was been losing physical strength she has remained the matriarch of our little mischief and the others have made sure that she is comfortable and has company. Daisy and Maisy come to here to be power groomed and in turn make sure that she is clean. They all cuddle up to her at bedtime. Because of her disability she no longer sleeps in a hammock so the others take turns to come and lie with her in the ground floor bed she now has. Anna in particular has become her near constant companion, often curling up around her and staying close to her, acting as her guardian.
Jasmine is being well cared for. She is on metacam and being pampered with everything she might want and she gives all the signs of being happy and without pain or stress. She is full of character, wilfull, clever, kind, generous, affectionate and has brought untold joy and happiness to me. And I know that when she's gone I will miss her with all my heart.ο»Ώ

We do feel the same way, +Ray Woodward! Thank you for the good wishes for my little ones. Your rats are so fortunate to have you care for and love them. Even though it's so hard to lose them, they make such a huge difference in our lives and it feels so good to be able to make a difference in their lives, too.Β ο»Ώ

Thank you! :-) It's even got a pair of little ratties in it too! My next session is in a month but I'll ask +Amanda McGowan​ to take a shot of the whole piece and put it up here soon. :-)ο»Ώ

There is absolutely no need for this barbarous behavior towards rats. Anyone who spends time with them knows that they feel complex emotions and have the ability to feel happiness & sadness; to have memories; to know love and loss. To treat them otherwise is to show contempt for these experiences in others and be blind in the observation of all animals beyond their flesh and blood and to demonstrate cruelty that is inexcusable. I only ask that people take the time to look critically at their actions and to look at the life of animals through those animals lives. I hope in doing so they will see the same things many of us already see. Thank you.
 
No matter how you feel about rats, this is cruel. #WorldRatDay Β ο»Ώ
UHCL is using rats for cruel experiments, even though humane alternatives exist! Speak up today and urge the school to stop abusing animals.

Our two new companions: Jesse (left) and James (right). They're 11week old males and they're adorable. We've been told Jesse is an escape artist which I find very easy to believe - he's very fast and rapidly finds any weakness in security. James (the Agouti) is more circumspect in his approach. He checks everything out before making his move. Together they'd make a criminal team πŸ˜€. We love 'em!

They're still in their infancy so we're planning on getting them spayed at around 6-7 months after they've gone through most of their growing phase. We've halved the SRS and put the Girls in the bottom, the boys in the top and closed up and blocked the opening between the two halves. So far no drama and we have set up an "either/or but not both" rule on cage doors to make sure we're not faced with a little surprise litter in 2016.

For those that have made it to the final paragraph I say thank you and just want to provide a little background information: The boys came to us from Valiance Rats, an NFRS accredited rattery who focus on improving the health in rats and extend their average lifespan (Alison is awesome & is also a show judge). Finally I hope you like the picture of our little boys - they're truly absolute darlings!!ο»Ώ
