I adopted Flower and Scribbles at the same time and Scribbles passed away a couple of months ago. I rescued them in 2014. Flower passed away tonight at the old age of 2.8 years old.
She was the first hairless rat I've ever had and I had a little to learn about them, like how she liked to pose for the camera. She was such a diva and my friend even made this meme when she saw her picture.
When she and Scribbles turned a year old, I made them a birthday cake. She hid over in the corner with a little bite.
She soon became the most lovable little rat and loved coming out, running around and dive bombing our shirts.
She was so photogenic and it seemed like she posed for the camera all the time.
She loved food and treats and I cut these tiny strips of carrot because it was fun watching her eat them.
She got a little whip cream on her chin one day when she and I shared a piece of pumpkin pie. I share this picture all the time because it's the cutest thing ever.
She tried grabbing the plastic bag one morning when I was spot cleaning her cage. How cute are her tiny fingers?
She lived the life of comfort and loved her hammocks and fleece cubes.
But her most favorite place to be was inside my or Ken's shirt.
When I put this big soft bed in her cage, she loved it and slept in it often.
Flower loved ice cream too. She was nice enough to let me have a few bites of my ice cream cone.
This is the last picture I took of her this week. She was slowing down and I knew it would probably be soon that she would be gone so she was getting all sorts of her favorite foods. She is eating a piece of Vienna Sausage here.
She was 2.8 years old and since rats live between 2-3 years, she was an old lady rat.
She was a very happy old lady rat though and I'm going to miss her.
