Hi, I have had the privilege of housing many pet rats. How do members rationalize the sad truth that the little love buddies will die relatively soon after one has learned to bind with them? Personally , I cannot handle the grief of such predictable loss. Any help would be greatly appreciate. Thanks

I think for me I’ve just accepted that their lives are shorter than I want and found ways to give them the best lives for the time that they do have. I find their favorite foods, things to play in and sleep in, then I try to have as much fun with them as I can in the time I’m given. It hurts when they leave but I have so many good memories and pictures that I can still hold onto. I love them too much to think a lot about the time we have left. I just try to focus on spoiling them and enjoying every second.
