Little Nancy passed away today after fighting illness for a couple of months. It was awful: we got up this mroning and found her lying on her side, unable to get up. She was obviously suffering so we called the emergency vet and took her down there. When we got home - and I'd managed to stop blubbing - we let Syd say goodbye to her and had a little funeral in the garden. It's so sad. But I know we gave her the best life a rat could ever hope for. Well, she might have hoped for even more chocolate, but then she would have died of gluttony a long time ago.

RIP, Nancy. You were an excellent companion.
