Rats in a Box… Another sad day

Kaa

Lifespan: 10/11/2012-9/22/2014

Gender: male

Description: Siamese Rex

Kaa was born on October 11th, 2012, one of eleven ratbabies. Khan and Kaa were very similar in appearance, but we could tell them apart by their shape and size- Kaa was smaller, with a slightly thinner skull and physique. Kaa was very shy, and liked to hide, but he also loved to sit on someone’s lap and have his head petted! He was named after the snake character in The Jungle Book.

Kaa had been very sick for the past few months, having never fully recovered from his big infection.  We’re not sure why, but he never put the weight back on after his second surgery, and we had an appointment with Gerald scheduled for this coming Friday, expecting to have him euthanized then.  He didn’t make it.  I’m just sorry he was so uncomfortable in his final days, and I wish more than ever that no creature had to suffer. Kaa’s bright spirit and enthusiastic approach to headpets will not be forgotten, and he will be sorely missed.
