Passing to the Bridge

We had to take our little Aeowen in to be put to sleep.

Her tumors had gotten large and she was spending more and more time resting with pain in her eyes and grinding her teeth. A sign she was trying to cope with her pain.

None of us wanted to see her in so much pain she couldn't manage and cancer does that.


Her little condo mates Narnia and Josie were incredibly worried about her and would arrange the nest so she was comfortable and would check on her as she rested.

They kept me updated on how she was doing. Yesterday morning they were pretty frantic when I came in to check on the girls in the morning.

Aeowen rode to the vet sitting on my lap and once there, gave me and Kinsey kisses and a snuggle and then went with the vet lady without being upset or worried. She was ready and tired of being in pain.

We are going to miss our girl. Narnia and Josie miss her so too. Aeowen was always curious and into investigating many things. She would be the first to adventure out and check out the new. She was known for biting anyone who got in her territory, but loved to snuggle with me and Kinsey and run all over Rob when he was sleeping. She was the instigator, who chewed through the back of their first condo and left an opening she could use when she wanted free access. It took me awhile to find it. She had started another one on the new condo that probably won't be finished now. Work stopped on it when she got sick 2 months ago.

We love you Aeowen and miss you. Go to the bridge and meet us when we go.

We're sorry. Until we started blogging and getting to know all you other bloggers, we never thought we could care about a rat. Now, we have tears in our eyes for Aeowen and for all who knew her. Big hugs. -- Alberta, Sky, Blackie and Charlie

Sorry about the sad news. One of our cats had cancer and it's so hard to watch, but you can't let them suffer in pain.

We're very sorry. My beans had a rat 12 years ago (!) who had tumors and had to be put to sleep. She was a lot like Aeowen, it seems, adventurous and curious and a warm fuzzy friend. Two Socks traveled from Catifornia to Whiskonsin with my beans. It's hard losing a family member, but she's no longer in pain.
