Minx has left the building and moved on to the Rainbow Bridge.
Born June 30, 2007 of Sweet Pea and Gordon, he lived well until just very recently. It was only few weeks earlier we noticed Minx losing weight but having no other symptoms. As a precautionary measure we put everyone on our vet recommended prophylactic antibiotic just in case it was some sort of infection. As all of our other boys, and girls, are doing fine it seemed the best course of action.
Minx’s condition did not change. It really did not worsen, but it also did not improve. Tonight, as I walked in the door after doing my habitual Tuesday night rat laundry, I found Mrs.R holding Minx in her arms and thought what a sweet sight. Then I noticed the look in her eyes, and knew.
