As time goes on we lose friends that we know we will
miss forever. Every one of these rats means
something special but especially the two rats that
this rattery is names after. Wisdom and Whisper.
Below is a picture and the story of each.
I hope that you enjoy.
This is wisdom 1998-2000 he was the sweetest rat that ever lived!
This rat was the best pet I have ever had, he loved to snuggle and play and always came
when called. He loved me with all his heart and always let me know that I was
the most important thing in his life. I will be forever greatful of what he gave
me and I will always mourn for what we had. I keep looking for a pet that
has the sweetness that this little guy showed me but I just can't find it anywhere. I hope
more than anything that you are waiting on the other side of the rainbow bridge
for me my sweet little wisdom.
Whisper and Midnight were the parents of Wisdom the Great,
Whisper was a sweet little girl and Midnight was also a very nice
boy! They are both sorely missed! Whisper was lost in Sept1999
due to an infection, she a was a great rat and used to follow me around
my apartment at a bound. She came whenever I called and behaved like
a princess. She was a thief though and would steal food of counters
no matter how cumbersome it may be! I miss her tiny form in my house
and heart.Midnight died of old age in early june of 1999, I got min when
he was full grown from a pet store. He was not going to stay there long as
he was ugly(as the pet store clerch explained) I think he was beautiful
and hated that they would say that so he came home with me and lived
out his life as a stud:)
This is Java, she was a saimese and a wonderful mother
For the last nine months of her life Java lived with my mom
and brother and was treated like the little queen that she
was. I f ound this little rat in the SPCA and fell in love with
her. She came home with me and one week later had a
healthy litter of five babies. All the babies found homes
, two of them with me. I am glad she got to live out the
last of her life in a home full of love
These are all decendants of Java in one way or another.Nova from right to left starting
on the top there is Nova (Javas daughter) Saddle (Javas daughter, different litter)
Seti her daughter(Novas sister, Javas Daughter) and Shadow(Whisper and Javas
grandaughter) Nova was a shining staralways there, she was not the friendliest rat
but when she got cancer her and I grew a special bond. When I took herto be put
down I was told that she could have surgery to remove it all would be well. She
made it through the surgery and afterwards was healthy for 2 months and
then it came back. She was put to sleep in January of 2000. Saddle was a happy
little girl, she was the nest maker and mother for all her sisters. When she left
at the beggining of the summer in 2000 everyone was sad,she was such a sweet soul.
Seti was lost at the end of november 2000, she died in her sleep, I am thankful
and I was unsure as to when to take her in to be put to sleep. All my other rats told
me when it was time but seti held strong untill she was ready to leave. Shadow
is a great little rat , she bounds around my room with thecontented look of a child in a
candy store. I know that all too soon I am going to lose this bright light and I hope that
that day can stay away for a long time.
This is AJ
My dad rescued this rat from the SPCA when I was awayin hopes that I could use
his as a breeder for siamese rats.He was not siamese however he sure was a
pretty capped rat. Dad called him AJ and he lived on a book shelf and in his cage
for all of his life. When we got him he used to bit like crazy but with love and patience on
my fathers part AJ made a lovely pet. We sure miss him.
Shadow the rat passed away on June 5th 2001 at the age of 3 1/2. She was a wonderful companion and proved to
me that a rat can really grow on her. I held her while she was in her final moments and will forever remember that she
lasted as long as she did. I will miss you shadow.
