    I'm so sorry, Niki. And I know getting another one doesn't quite come close to replacing the one you love. When ou first cat died, we got another, one that looked a lot ole' Zeke, but he just had a different personality. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Aw, when I saw this post it just broke my heart. I've had 4 ratties at different times (lived 4, 2.5, 3, and 3 years). My third rat Sammy had 3 strokes near the end of his life and would become paralyzed for awhile. All summer long, I gave him tylenol with strawberry milk and did rattie physical therapy. I figure that all medication was probably tested on rats before it ever got to humans anyway, and aspirin does come from birch bark, a natural substance. By the end of the summer, he was able to walk a little bit, but he died after the last stroke, which he suffered while I was holding him. My parents got me a cute baby rat a few months after. I never considered Smokey to be a replacement rat of any sort. He was a different rat with a different personality. You never forget an old companion, and even if you have a new one, that doesn't change the relationships or fond memories that you obtained in the past.

    I'm sorry Niki. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] That hits close to home for me. Saturday will be the first year death date for my dog Jonah. I still grieve. Saturday will be a hard day. Thursday would have been his 13th birthday.

    I now have the demon Ollie who will never replace Jonah but is a dog with his own personality.

    The death of a pet is always a hard thing. I really feel for you and your loss.

    If you're so inclined, there is a nice real-time ceremony for departed pets held every Monday nite. Its called a
    Candle Ceremony and is kinda close to a "funeral". You can list your pet's name on the Bridge list and participate in the ceremony. I did that for Jonah. Its http://www.petloss.com if you want to check it out.

    And also to the Rainbow Bridge where our pets wait for us...

    Jonah is on the Bridge List..."Jonah Wire-Haired Fox Terrier 04/07/92-04/09/04 Suzanne"

    Cool

    im so sorry i wish there was something i could do, but no pet lasts forever [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] unfortunatly us keepers of smaller animals like rodents and birds must with shorter lifespans must go trough this pain many times. I hope everything works out for the best for you and your rat.

    PAK: I sympatize with you. my own childhood companion dog is nearing the age of 15 and is slowing down considerably... it pains me greatly to see it when he attempts to engage a family member in play and is imidatly pushed aside by the younger dogs, so i play with him alone. Hes showing mor einterest in play recently and is still, fin fact, faster than our other 3 year old dog, whom is overwight. Your pents qont be with you forever so love them today and savor theh time you have been given togeather.

    Amoung my finches, i have been extremly fortyunate to have a surprisingly low mortality rate, and have had only two deaths thus far. I cant tell if its the quality of care or their surprising longevity. no bird appears to show symptoms of old age, and one has a confirmed age of 18 years, whom is my tamest and my first and is still my favorite. My worst experince and ceartenly the most tramatic was a wing injury of my first female.she was renderd unable to fly and it formed a scap wich later burst, and she bled to death before my eyes, there was nothing i could do.
    that makes no logic
