So I decided last night that I’d try starting up Rat Diaries again. I’ve been missing making videos for a while now, but I just haven’t been sure if I was up for writing about the rats again. But, seeing as it’s World Rat Day (or at least it was at the time of writing this), I thought I’d give things a shot. I even fixed the missing-end-credits-music problem so I can make videos again! So, yeah. The Rat Diaries is (tentatively) out of hiatus! I really don’t know how often I’ll write on this blog, but I do have some things to update you guys on so I guess we’ll see how this goes. Thanks for stickin’ around, and Happy World Rat Day everybody!

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.
The ever-tiny, always-hyper, little miss Button was put to sleep this afternoon (November 5). She had grown, against the odds, to be two years, six months, and twenty-two days old. But her tumor had gotten too large. (more…)

Yesterday (November 3) while playing with Button, I took one of the ribbons I used to drag around for the rats to chase and tied it in a bow. Then I tried to get it to stay on Button’s head…

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…)

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…)
