Four Weeks Later

It’s been four weeks to the day since we let go of our Star Rattie. It feels simultaneously like a lifetime, and the span of a heartbeat.

This past weekend, Gryphon told me he wrote a poem about her passing. He composed it during stray bits of time at work, the night of the day we lost her.

He expressed beautifully what those last moments were like. If you’d like, you can read it at his blog, here.

We have Lola and Sable still, but we’ll always miss Star.

I’m pleased to tell you for the first time that we’re already planning to bring in yet another generation of Rattie Sisters. We’re on a waiting list for a litter right now, with a breeder in the Manchester area. It should be early to mid-October that we’ll be bringing home another pair of Rattie girls.

Three Rattie Sisters

Once Ratties get a hold of your heart, you never want to be without them again.
