Description: Hooded Rex
Nine died yesterday evening, of old age. So soon after Chandra…
Seven and Nine were the last two girls we chose in 2012 when we were looking for rats. They were snuggled together and seemed the least social- we wanted to get six rats at the time, because we thought that number would work well for us. At the time we still had two elderly girls, so with the six new ones we’d have 8 total, which we figured we could handle until our two older girls passed. We didn’t want to split up Seven and Nine because they seemed so attached to each other, and so we made the fateful decision to take them both home with us.
Nine was one of our smallest girls, and most friendly. She loved exploring and visiting with new people, and she never liked to stay still, even on her last day.
