So I’m sure a few of you have seen pictures of some of my rats. The white one, Via, and the black/white one, Reesie, are both in a very bad stage right now. Via has to be put down because of a large tumor on her body, which is set to rupture within a few weeks. I have to let her go before that happens.
Reesie is acting very strange. She walks around only half awake, moves very slowly, but still makes efforts to eat (which is a sign of good health). All the while, she’s letting me pet her a lot more and she’s not taking the usual cover in her hiding place. All the worse, her front fingertips are turning black. Very strange indeed. I hope she’s just sick temporarily, but usually these things mean the end.
