    After my cat was hit by a car last week, I thought life kinda sucked, but then yesterday I discovered one of my rats had pneumonia. He died tonight at about 8pm, and I'm officially death incarnate. I just wanted to leave something to say so long boys, you'll both be sorely missed by me and your brothers. Sleep well CJ and Smeagle :cry:

    I'm so sorry. Losing a pet is truly hell. :(

    My heart goes out to you, Uri.

    It was hard enough when our cat passed away last May. I can't imagine losing two pets in a week.

    My condolences, Uri.

    Sorry to hear about your pets - I know how attached I am to mine, and I would be devastated if anything happened to her.

    Thanks guys. It's been a very difficult few days, but we're plodding along as usual. We have to go through the rigmarole of introducing a new rat into the lonely one's territory now though, joy :p He'd be lonely otherwise and get depressed...

    I still have some Black Asian scorpions left to part with, Uri. They're low-maintenance, exotic and uber-cool under a blacklight. Not the cuddly kind of pet, though.

    Rats are pretty cool too -- had one for four years till he died of old age. I used to take him with me wherever I went. The number of old ladies he freaked out... priceless. :shake:

    My former housemate had gerbils -- neurotic hamsters, IMO.

    It sucks to lose a pet, let alone two.
    This time last year my other half had 19 rats - now he has 4 (and one is old and quite sick) so I know how you feel.
    Rats are great but unfortunately aren't the most long-lived pet. It's horrible to lose a cat to a car, though.

    Perhaps consider getting a couple of ferrets. They're great fun and last 6-12 years. They also sleep a lot.

    I'm addicted to my ratties, they're always happy to see me, and so amazingly intelligent. My oldest (and rather fat) one comes to me when I say "Dominominoino!" and gets all excited cause he knows he's gonna get cuddles ^_^
