I went to check on my rats this morning, a few moments ago, and play with them. Mom had fed them for me earlier, as I am having issues now with my heart and I am to take it easy until I get in to a doctor. He was alive, but sluggish when mom fed them. I went to go play with him like I do every morning and he was laying on his side cold. He hadn't been dead long, but with my AC he got cold fast after the fact. He was 6 3/4 years old. He was my baby and I am going to miss him but he had a good life. I've actually been prepared for this for a long time because of his age, so, while it hurts, I'm ok with it. I did everything right and he lived a long happy life and had so much love.
RIP Sammy. You were the sweetest, most clever rat I have ever known and you were a pleasure to know. I thank you for being in my life, my dear boy.
