RIP Nibbitz

Posted in rainbow bridge on May 20, 2010

In September of ‘08 I brought home two little rat sisters, one of them picked out because of the stripe on her face.  I have a weak spot for striped faced rats.

We named her Nibbitz.

She was a TEENIE little thing when I first broght her home, just a slight handful, and afraid of the whole world.

She did grow up to be a strapping young rat woman though.  And lived a happy life with her sister One of Two, and their catemates.

Sadly, the last week of April 2010 we lost our dear girl.  She’s got her wings now and is flying with all the dear rats I’ve known before her.

    I love the first photo of her - she looks like she is winking. I am so sorry for your loss.

    I went to the grocery yesterday and someone had parked their scooter on the sidewalk just outside the front door. There were several people around it so I had to see what they were looking at. The scooter driver left his pet rat on the seat of the scooter while he went in and shopped. Amazing.

    Goodness Gracious, has it been that long already? It seems like only a month ago you picked up the girls.

    I hope she passed peacefully.

    Awww…sorry to hear about the passing, but how cute! I’m a bit obsessed with hamsters (not the same thing as rats, but similar) but landlady wouldn’t let me keep mine when I moved in Feb. So my brother is caring for mine, with check-ins from me! (the hamster is happy, although his name has been changed about 5 times…I don’t think he cares as long as he gets attention and food!)

    Rats are not just vermin anymore. For hundreds of
    people around the world they are family members, just like the cats, dogs and hamsters of the world.

    Rattitude hopes to help get rid of rattieism in the world and show just how great rats can be.

    Thanks for taking time to stop and read and I hope I spread some rat goodwill.
