Goodbye Polleke!

Our beautiful Polleke left us today after almost 2,5 years. We loved her curiosity from the moment she came to live with us, as small as a little mouse...

... all the way to this:

She was our last rat standing - the very last one of the group to go. Now all there's left is an empty cage. No more sleeping in a pile, no more of this:

It truly is the end of an era!! :(

Goodbye Polleke! Back to your sisters you go!

Polleke (09/09/09 - 15/02/12)


  1. Aww sorry hun, they don't live long enough do they.
    I miss my mice, hamsters and rats, i've had lots over the years but not now i've got my 2 doggies.

    Hugs x

  2. So sorry! Silly how such beautiful, funny and loving pets are only able to stay with us for such a short time!

  3. Thanks, you guys! It truly is a shame pet rats have such short lives... But I'm happy I was able to make the short lives of my five rats as comfortable and fun as possible :)
