Good-bye to our Rattie Girl Sammy
Recently we said good-bye to Jen, and now we have said good-bye to our oldest rattie girl, Sammy. We found her dead on Tuesday. She had hung on a very long time, a surprise to us, since she had developed large tumours, and toward the end lost all her beautiful blond colour, and became completely white and then eventually a light grey. But we still remember her earlier days with her pretty silky blond hair, ruby eyes, and her surprising candy-like scent (none of the other rats smelled sweet like she did). She was a good friend to Jenny, and to my daughter. We will miss her.
