Another Small Furry Creature Goes to Heaven

Yesterday I was editing photos that I had taken the previous day when my phone rings and on the other end is a sobbing teenager! I am not talking a light sob, I am talking sobbing so hard that I cannot understand him! I just knew that something terrible had happened. After several attempts I finally understand that Salt (his pet rat) has joined his friend Socks in rat heaven and Zach had a hand, well actually a foot in his death. Please try not to laugh but this is how it went down as I understand it: Zach and his BFF Bre were at the park with their pet rats and they were playing on the merry-go-round. Some how Salt ended up on the ground and Zach was horsing around with Bre and stepped on him! From Salt's perspective, I would have to imagine that this would be like seeing the foot of God coming at you since Zach has a size 14 foot! Zach was totally distraught that he had killed his rat and that if he had not been horsing around, it never would have happened! The boy has such a tender heart for small, furry creatures and he would never hurt one intentionally! He just doesn't understand that these things happen sometimes! Well, needless to say, after a trip to the pet store he is now the proud owner of two little girl rats. One is named Luna and I forget the other one. Welcome to the family girls! I hope you survive the year!

Losing a pet is so difficult and add to it that you were part of the accident that took their life. Been there. It's hard. I'm glad he adopted some new furry friends to overcome his sadness. You can't replace the love you lost, but it sure eases the pain.
We're going through it our place as I write.

Rats? The things we do to be good moms. :)
