The end of a journey for a brave and loving Rat

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 17, 2014, 1:45 AM


Hi guys..

Today was a very sad day for me. My beloved rat, Lexie, passed away in her sleep this morning. She was surrounded by her cage mates and best friends, Trogdor, Spice, Loki and Thor. She didn't die alone, and I am happy knowing that she went peacefully. I knew she was going to die soon for quite a while, though I did not expect her to leave me today, so it hit pretty hard. Before I went to bed I was with her for over an hour, kissing and cuddling her, as well as singing the song I'd made up for her. I told her that I loved her and that it was okay for her to let go. 
I was going to wait till Wednesday to take her to the vet, and get her put down if she was worse. I guess she decided it was time though.

At least my mum got to say goodbye to her before she went to work, as she was alive and moving around at 9am, even snatched lettuce from my mum's hands and ate a bit. She died two hours later and I came out to find her already departed.  
Trogdor stayed with her until I removed her from the cage. The two were close and he's grieving pretty bad, but he's getting lots of cuddles. 

This all hit me really hard and I've been unable to hold down food very well, and while most people will say "it's just a rat, get over it!", but to me she was my daughter, my child and my very first pet that I had that was mine, I paid for everything, I raised her and she was my baby. 

I loved her so much I got her cremated because I want her to come with me when my boyfriend and I move into our new home. I wanted her to be alive to see her new home, but at least this way - in a way - she will :) 

I'm doing fine for now, though I still burst out in tears randomly. 
Thanks for listening
Emily :heart:

I'm just your average artist, trying to find my place in this world. My preferred medium for art at the moment is digital art, but occasionally I'll draw traditional stuff.
My Goal is to become a well known artist here on Deviant Art and to one day get a Daily Deviation :XD: I live through my art, and I hope you enjoy it.

No thanking please!!

You don't need to thank me for favs.
I appreciate that you're thankful but it's not necessary.
PLEASE PLEASE read this...
This stops most people from flocking my messages with thank yous, but there are still a few of you that still thank me. You're welcome for the fave, but there really is no need to thank me.
SERIOUSLY
