We're Worried About Irving



The gray rat Irving is not doing well. After visits to the vet and some antibiotics the only other course of action for his respiratory infection is a steam nebulizer treatment.

Last night I put both rats in a cage and set them in the bathroom while I showered, hoping the hot, moist air would help. It did not.  

Irving is a year and a half. The average life expectancy of fancy rats is only two years.

A few weeks ago, someone noticed how attached we are to our rats, wondering how we could go through the heartbreak of loving animals with such a short lifespan. I didn’t know how to answer as we haven’t yet gone through the experience.

I’m hoping Irving can recover from his infection and live a bit longer. We need him!
