Goodbye to Winston Rat 

❤️ This week we said our final goodbye to Winston rat, after 2 years and 4 months of his wonderful company. Over his little lifetime he changed considerably as he grew up and grew with us – from a timid wide-eyed baby rat born in a rescue centre, once called Pinocchio, who when he first came home was so afraid to even step out from his cage door; to our strong and playful young Winston rat, gambolling around the room at top speed; and eventually to our old flop Winnie, never far from our sides, always tugging at a trouser leg to be picked up for cuddles or settling down for an evening snuggled under a chin. He brought us and all of his cagemates so much joy, and I am so glad to have been blessed with him. ❤️

  1. I just found your blog, and while I’m so sorry for your loss, I am thrilled to have found someone who has the love for all our brother and sister beings. How I’d love to welcome such a beautiful being into my life, my other half, Mr. Quantum, would so totally freak!

    I do have a resident spider who has been living in my bathroom the past year. I look forward to reading more of your stories, here.
