It’s been a few days now and it still is not any easier to write these posts. Our second Mynx, one of the Prodigal Sons passed to the Rainbow Bridge on Dec 22, 2009. I will remember him as one of the strongest willed rats I have known … and I will miss his indomitable spirit.
The prodigal sons returned home about two weeks ago. That’s how I’m going to refer to the boys as one of them carries the same name as our recently departed Minx.
A blast from the past at YouTube when the boys were babies:
It was about two years ago that we experienced our first litters of rats. It was quite the experience and we still have most of them with us. Our daughter adopted four of the boys and named them: Mynx, Moonie, Padfoot, and Prongs. Due to unforeseen circumstances and issues with her landlord our daughter was forced to re-home the boys. Fortunately for us, we have room and so they are home and just re-integrated with their male siblings and cousins.
