My sweet ratboy Orion died this afternoon. He has been doing poorly the past month, but was hanging in there until the end. He had been in a cage by himself for a while as he tended to start fights, but the last month we had him back in the big cage, and I think that really helped him last this long. He even ate some macaroni & cheese at lunchtime. Give your furry friends a scritch in his memory tonight.
Orion was named for the "star" on his face (more correctly called a blaze). Also, all of my rats have been named after cities, and Orion is a city, though off hand I can't remember where.
