Three Times Unlucky

Addie, our pet rat, RIP. Born June 30, 2007. Died May 1, 2009.

Addie died in the early hours of the morning. Mrs.R slept on the sofa with her so she would not be alone in her final hours. Addie is our third pet to leave for the Rainbow Bridge in a little less than the same number of days.

Addie was named in the same fashion as her sister Ande. Ande and Addie markings were very similar with Ande having a more pronounced peak in the classic hooded stripe down her back, so she was named for the Andes mountains; Addie’s name came from the Adirondacks.

I love all our pets but some just seem to stand out a bit more than others. Addie was one of those pets; a pet rat that made an impression and I will miss her dearly. Rest in peace my little girl; take care and be safe at the bridge.
