I'm still trying to decide. I really wanted to do this, but I've been struggling to finish the swaps I did this month and may need a break. Though...hammocks are pretty darn easy...

My rattie is super sick Sad

My 2 favorite boys are sick, too Sad  That's the down-side of having rats, they're health is so fragile. I don't dare add up my vet bills, i'm sure it's over $1,000.
On a more selfish note, I hope you join the swap! The more the merrier, right?

I'm sorry to hear about your sick ratties, girls. I hope they get better! Yesterday about three hours after I signed up for this swap, one of my ratties died. My boy Romulus was about a year and a half old, and he had pretty severe myco. It had been successfully treated with antibiotics before, but it was too much for him this time. I'm just glad he's no longer suffering.

I'm still excited about this swap though; I have 12 other babies, and they all think I should carry on in his honor. Wink

Oh, I'm so sorry about your ratties.  Sad
I lost my rat Kenji pretty recently too.  I would like to adopt another rat (Kenji was my only rat at the time), but I think it is too soon.
I am sorry for such sadness.  Sad

Oh I am so sorry! Myco sucks Sad That's one of Comet's issues too - she's been on meds for it since she was 8 months old. She has also had 4 tumor surgeries (with multiple tumors removed each time), has a weird eye thing, and hind-end paralysis. She's 2 years 8 months old though, so I'm just happy she's still around Smiley She's the last of a group of six, but I haven't gotten any more rats to keep her company because I want boys next time. (I'm REALLY sick of tumor surgeries!)

But they are worth it Smiley
