Ollie (10/26/18) and Finn (1/7/19), R.I.P.
« on: January 08, 2019, 07:46:18 PM »
Mrs. Ratty here,                                                                                                                  1/8/2019

You've probably read about Ollie's problems in the Rat Care Corner.  He went home to play at the bridge around October 26, the Friday before Halloween. (Mr. Ratty said it was summer, but it probably feels that long ago because Ollie's problems started in the summer.)  Finn was having what sounded like respiratory problems; the vet gave him a shot of B12 in December in hopes that would clear it up, but on January 7, Mr. Ratty found him dead in the cage he shared with Stanley, our remaining boy.  We're not sure what happened, but it appears he collapsed just as he was emerging from the tunnel.  Now Finn joins Ollie at the bridge.  Incidentally, the boys were named for the Roach boys of Comedy:  Oliver Hardy (Ollie), James Finlayson (Finn), and Stanley Laurel (Stan or Stanley). All three boys were over two years old; we received them from their previous pet parent Bridget when they were a little over a year old, in 2017. Mr. Ratty and I will continue to lavish attention on Stanley.  I've attached a trio of links to photos of all three boys.  Enjoy.

I'm so sorry to hear of your losses. I wanted to look at the pictures but I'm not able to. But I love the names you chose, and knew immediately where you got the names.
