So sorry for your loss. What a cutie he is. Losing a rat can be more difficult than some people would ever imagine. They may be small but they sure do leave a big footprint on our hearts. The decision to get more is totally up to you. If you feel ready to bring another rattie into your heart, consider getting at least two ratties. They live much more fulfilling lives when they have a buddy who can be with them 24/7 and do other rat things with them, like groom, and chat with, etc. (There are rare occasions where a rat may need to be a single rattie, but most of the time they are happier with a buddy.)

Best wishes  :heart:
