We will miss you so much little Pip"squeak". ~March 2004 to 12 Feburary 2006~ Pip loved to talk and bounce around. He hardly ever sat still. He was always happy and exploring and talking. The little guy never got fluffy like many of our other rats because he never sat still. Pip is one of the sweetest little ratsies I have ever known and Kinsey and I miss him terribly. He loved Kinsey the best and would run and jump on her when she had been gone for a bit. He always slept in her bed and loved to run around her room. Pip and Salsa were brothers and Pip never seemed to get over Salsa's passing. He missed him and it gives me some comfort to know that Salsa was there waiting to greet him on the Rainbow Bridge, and they are now off playing and snuggling in rodentia bliss. ~Poi Mom Jane  Posted by Picasa

*hugs* I'm so sorry Jane. He was a great little guy. But now, at least Salsa's got him to play with, right? We'll miss his comments. xx

We're glad you're back but so so sad with the news about Pip. Give an extra nuzzle and kissie for us to Kinsey kitten and your mom.

I'm really sorry, what a dreadful thing to come home to. But sometimes, when one of your babies has missed their pal so much, you just know it's going to start a load of playing over the bridge x

Sorry to read the news. I very much enjoyed reading about him.

I'm curious, what is the life expectancy of these rats? I have no idea.

Isn't it amazing how much you gain from the creature companions in our lives? Wow.

Rodentia like ratsies usually live from 2-3 years. However this fluctuates a lot depending on the rat. I had a friend who had a ratsie that lived five years, but I think that is pretty uncommon. Most of us live a couple of years. ~"Fig" Newton
