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

My parents have made the decision to put Cricket down tomorrow (July 16th – I haven’t gone to bed yet so it still feels like the 15th). There’s nothing else we can do to help her, and she doesn’t deserve to suffer anymore.
