I had two WONDERFUL senior rats. They are some of the best trained rats I have been around. Just wonderful guys. Sadly one of them died yesterday morning. It was just his time. They were adults when I got them from a friend and we had them over two years.
I am so worried about the other guy. He looks so lost, lonely, and sad. It just breaks my heart. Other than looking like a gruff old guy, he is doing really well, physically. I am trying to decide if I should socialize and try to introduce one of my other rats for him, or just try to keep him snuggled and occupied. The others I have to choose from are feeders and a bit flighty right now.
I had him out in the dining room for a bit of treat hunting and snuggles tonight. He is such a sweetie. He would find a treat and run it directly back to the cage, or would come hop on my lap to eat it right there.
Any rat people on here have some advice? I have a few good candidates in my feeder group that would make great pets. I just feel so bad for the little guy. I don't want to see him lonely, but I don't want to see him stressed out to the point it would hurt his health.
