We knew this day was coming. Splodge had had some lumps growing inside her stomach. We knew they weren't mamory lumps, which meant that she wouldnt survive an operation to remove them. So we kept her with us for as long as we could. We woke up this morning and she was down the bottom of the cage, cold and lifeless. We stayed with her and kept her warm until she went to rainbow bridge around an hour later.
When we first got her we calleed her Splodge because she had black and white splodges over her back and face.
This is a picture of when we first got her.
Splodge had a slight kink in her tail, as though she had injured it, squashed it somehow. She must of done it before we got her. It never seemed to of bothered her at all.
Splodge was a person rat, she loved being out of the cage. Whenever it was time to come out she would be one of the first ones on the floor.

Splodger loved exploring, anywhere she could get she would go.
Who wants cake? I'm looking around
Oh, go on then, seen as its my Birthday.
Splodger loved being groomed, sometimes a little to much. She had bald patches all over her head and neck in the end.
Thanks for the grooming Sunny
Splodger also loved a good scratch from us.
She loved her belly scratches, whenever we gave her a belly scratch she would lean her head back, as though she would lie there all day and let you carry on.

Although she loved being out of the cage, she loved spending time with her sisters. Her favourite place inside the cage was never inside a cube, but above it.
