Dammit, not again.
Just lost the second rat in two weeks. Chocolat was found on her side with her teeth around one of the bars. Once we were able to get her out, we found she was having breathing problems. Doing the rat Heimlich and "the fling" didn't help at all. She never moved her body at all and didn't blink.
We will be getting no more rats until we know that Tira is healthy.
