Sadly, the little rat who came in as a 'stray' last week had to be euthanized. They suspected she was sick when she came in, and it went downhill fast. It's such a shame - Violet (as we ended up naming her) was tame and would've been a really sweet pet for somebody. She even had someone interested in her! I guess it just wasn't meant to be.
On a much better note - Sherlock (the black guinea pig) was adopted! I have no idea why someone would take her instead of our two friendly girls, but good for her. I hope she gets the attention she needs now!
