R.I.P Holly

Hey readers, How's things? As you can tell from the title, I lost my second heart rat, Holly. Yesterday I made the immensley hard decision to put Holly to sleep after she was battling a series of very aggressive chest infections and old age. Holly suffered a lot with infections and we suspect it to be due to bad stock. It was horrible to see her so sickly her whole life. When I rescued Holly and her sister, Polly in January earlier this year, you all know I wasn't supposed to be keeping them as permanent residents, but I am so so glad I did. Holly and Polly opened my eyes to how incredible rats were. Polly was extra cheeky but Holly was reserved and mellow and really kept to herself. When Polly passed, me and Holly stuck together like glue and I fell in love with her all over again. Holly became very very loving and affectionate and really came out her shell.

R.I.P Bobbin

Hi guys, It's a really quick and sad post today. Sadly, we lost our beautiful Syrian hamster, Bobbin the other day. She was 2 years old but had a horrifying past which was bound to shorten her life- and sadly it did. Bobbin passed peacefully and naturally in her sleep.  It was actually quite nice to see her looking so happy and at ease. Bobbin was a pro-treat poucher, bright orange, social hamster. She was my first Syrian hamster that I cared for by myself. We had them as a child but they were a family pet. Bobbin had an amazing nature and truly will be missed. She is now at rest and running wild and free over the rainbow bridge. Good night Bobbin, We love you.
