The Rat Diaries

A blog to show you that rats might just be…not so bad, after all.

The Rat Diaries is currently on hiatus. November 6, 2014

I’m going to take a break from The Rat Diaries while I recover from the recent loss of my pets. This includes my YouTube channel. I’ll be back someday, though I’m not sure when. It could be a few weeks, or several months. But I’ll be back. After all, I have a ton of videos needing to be finished. I want to thank you all for your support these past two years. I enjoy reading every comment I receive, and I’m so excited each time I get a new follower or subscriber. I look forward to sharing my future animal adventures with you.

Until next time,
Anna

 

Button


Once again, I am not sure how to begin. In fact, I don’t even know what happened today. My brain hasn’t processed that there is an empty cage sitting upstairs in my room.

One thing I’ve learned about Button over the past two years is she is very particular about how her home is decorated. When the girls were younger, every time I finished cleaning the cage Button would spend a good fifteen minutes making a mess of things until all was just as she wanted. (more…)

 

Bunny October 25, 2014


How can I even start? I am all out of words. When I got my baby ratties two years ago, I never imagined that making the final decision and saying goodbye to them would be so impossible.

My dear, sweet, loving Bunny was put to sleep this evening (October 24). She was two years, six months, and ten days old. She had cancer and just wasn’t herself. (more…)

 

Results of Vet Visit October 23, 2014

The vet visit went very well. I think the vet may still have some things to learn about rats, but I was very pleased with how caring and professional she and her assistant were toward the rats. (more…)

 

First Vet Visit Tomorrow October 22, 2014

So this is a bit of good news and bad news. Good news is, my parents are finally letting me take Bunny and Button to the vet for an exam. Bad news is, Bunny is very, very sick. (more…)
