Papa Ink Passes

Inky, our oldest Berkshire pet rat took his final sleep last night. This morning at breakfast Mrs.R found Inky under the ramp, one of his favorite places, already gone to the Rainbow Bridge.

We recently moved Inky to the lower level of the “big” FN to help with his advancing age. We moved a few of the other boys in with him for company and raised the connecting ramp for safety purposes.

Teetu, Jeremy, Gordon, and Bruiser will be missing Inky. T, Jer, and Gordon were moved in with Inky for age reasons; and, Bruiser was moved in to take care of his Papa Ink. Bruiser, Inky’s son, always took care of his papa when all the boys in the big FN were living together, but it was Teetu who put up the most fuss seeing Inky leave with Mrs.R; and, he made sure she knew about it, too.

Everyone will be missing our Inky as he goes to be with his friends and family at the Rainbow Bridge. Good-bye my Inka-Ma-Rinky-Doo!
