I miss her so much already.. :(

Ivy was my rat baby.. she was one of my favourites.. always so full of life.. so loving.. always kissing.. always so happy to see me.. even in her last few days..

She left last night while I was holding her in my arms.. I held her for a couple hours.. she was so still.. and her breathing was so shallow.. and even then she kissed me.. I felt her life leave her.. it was so hard.. I want her back.. This is really hitting me hard.. I always miss my ratties when they leave.. they only live a few years.. I've had many and I can't say it's ever easy but I have kind of gotten used to it.. but this is killing me.. I miss her so much. I want to be able to see her sweet face looking lovingly at me from her cage.. waiting for me to take her out to play and cuddle.. Every time I think of her I just start bauling. Last night when she stopped breathing it was like I just didn't want to accept it.. I didn't want to put her down.. I kept waiting for her to look up at me.. kiss me.. something.. I wish she could have been with me longer..
Heres a couple pics of her grooming me.. she would always do that.. lick my hands all over.. then nibble and groom them.. always trying to pull off my finger nails.. thinking they weren't supposed to be there..




Sitting on the bed.. looking sweet as usual

Here she is being her playful self.. always so happy and full of life..




I always call this one her pirate pose.. thats what she makes me think of here.. I can just hear her saying " ARGH me maties!" the little goon


And this is her sweet face.. this is the expression that kills me.. just the look in her eyes.. it kills me now.. I just see trust and love.. I miss her so much..

Oh Heather, I'm so sorry.

I know how hard it is on you to lose one of your rattie babies. ((HUGS))

Think of the life she did have and think of all the sweet memories and know that you will see eachother again.

Rest in Peace Ivy...

Awww I'm so sorry Heather :(. (((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))

It's so hard to lose them, especially when they are not with us very long. She was such a beautiful girl! Her spirit shines through so strongly in her eyes. RIP sweet girl.

I'm so sorry....

Oh sweetie...sadly, I know that pain all to well, and my heart is aching with yours :( I know that nothing can take that ache away, but I hope you find peace in knowing that beautiful precious Ivy was fortunate to have felt the greatest love from you through her (all too short) life and she will be forever surrounded by that love...
(((HUGS)))
