Title: A sad day for the rat world
Post by: BigBen on November 29, 2017, 01:23:11 AM
Those of you who remember the extremely photogenic rat, Marty Mouse, may know that his mother adopted three almost equally cute brothers a few years ago, after Marty died.  She is a professional photographer and has been documenting their adventures on a Web site called martymousehouse.com.  Wimbley died over a year ago of a pituitary tumor, Milo died earlier this year, and now Fibbs has died suddenly of old age, a couple of months short of his third birthday.  The conceit was that Fibbs ran for President of the United States as the nominee of the Donutcratic Party (slogan:  "Peace, Love, Doughnuts") and has been governing the country since the election.

I don't know why, exactly, but losing each of these boys has been like losing one of my own rats.  They were all adorable.  Each had a strong personality that came through in the photos; Fibbs in particular had a mischievous twinkle in his eyes.  Marty was a very persuasive rat ambassador in his time, and Milo, Wimbley, and Fibbs ably carried on the tradition.  The world is a poorer place without them.
