Our rat Giles passed away in the middle of the night last night. Nick was holding him, and he went quietly.

For such a total cream puff, a Chubby Huggs type, he ended up being astonishingly tough. By the end, though, it was a relief on both sides, I think... he had been suffering for quite a while. We did our best by him.

Nick buried him this morning next to Justin, under the ornamental plum, which is just starting to show the first white blossoms. He buried the little guy with a sugar snap pea pod, since Giles loved those so much. Sleep quietly, shmoo.
