We have had our rat Snuggie for about a year and 9 months now. Today she passed away at the vet’s office. That’s right….Julie took her to the vet when we discovered she was having trouble breathing, which had been going on the last 3 days. The vet put her in a small oxygen tent for about 20 minutes, but she was just too sick. She died at the vet’s office, and we were not charged for the visit. Tomorrow she will be buried in the backyard. She was a very good pet and will be missed.
