Nutmeg

We said goodbye to our sweet Nutmeg yesterday.
Nutmeg was our biggest,
quietest,
most cooperative rat...
and she was the star...
of nearly a dozen photo shoots.
It didn't matter how simple...
or complicated the task...
she never let us down.
Nutmeg was a really good rat.
I miss her already.

  1. I remember that pink hat picture! I have the picture of her and Rat Bait saved on my computer.
    So sorry for your loss.

  2. Awww! I'm so sorry. I feel like the loss of those little guys is just as bad as the loss of a dog or a horse. Sandy, my guinea pig passed away on March 27th at the age of 6 1/2, and it was awful. I miss her so much. I hope your boys are doing alright too. It's never easy.

  6. So sorry for your loss. :( Thank you for sharing the adorable pictures of her. I hope that the photos and the memories can bring you some comfort in the future.

    Also, she looked just like my very first rat, Titch. He was also a tawny hooded.

    I wish their lifespans were longer. :(
