    Oh god, that sounds awful. :(  Tumors, lung cancer...at least she's in a place where the pain can't hurt her now.

    I'm sorry about that, tumors are one of the downsides of having females :(  - at least she was a decent age.

    Was she a lone rat or do you still have her cagemates?

    Sorry to hear that. My cat Oscar just passed away on Monday and he's left quite the void. It's amazing how attached we can get to these critters. :(

    I'm sorry to hear about your rat. They're neat little pets, but their lives are too short.
