Lavos died last night... or more accurately some time this morning. I found her at around 1 A.M.
For those who do not know Lavos is the small tan and white rat I adopted earlier this year... she was less then a year old. Not sure what happened. I came down with a bad bout of food poisoning, and by the time I was conscious again I noticed her cage-mate was going crazy... I pulled Maverick out to go investigate... got some gloves on and eventually found Lavos laying in her sleeping house. From the rat owners I have talked to this is similar to what happens when a rat has a stroke or heart problems.... they tend to die where they sleep.
This is especially hard since I am actually seriously considering having my 23-25 year old cat Little Bit put to sleep... she's deteriorating rapidly and it's getting to the point where it's becoming more cruel to force her to continue going onwards. I'm going to try and convince her to get into a kitty carrier and then take her to a vet this weekend.
