I have just returned from the vet to have Trillian, one of our pet rats, checked out, and I'm sad to say that she's been put to sleep. She seemed to have been losing control over her rear end over the past weeks, and getting difficulty keeping her balance. More recently, her appetite withered away and her fur started to look less well kept. Just before I took her to the vet, I noticed crusts of porphyrin (a reddish substance secreted at the eyes) around her eyes. The secretion itself is quite normal, but not in these amounts and not without the rat cleaning her eyes. Seeing how fast she had worsened over the past few days, I had to agree with the vet that this was not going anywhere good, so he put her to sleep. Tric (wyldirishtric) already told me before she went to school that if the vet didn't see any chance of improvement and adviced putting the rat to sleep, I should go ahead. I'm sure she would have preferred to accompany me though, but that's how things go.

Sleep sweet, Trillian.

On tailgating and warnings
A while ago, while I was driving to a job interview, I overtook a few trucks on the highway. While doing so, I was tailgated by a woman that came so close, that I couldn't even see her headlights in my rear view mirror anymore. Read more...Collapse )

Well, one of our ratties, Trillian, had surgery today. She had to have a lump removed (most likely benign, but still better to get it out). When we got her back, she seemed rather drugged, falling over a lot, but it was not stopping her trying to scurry everywhere. At the moment, she keeps doing laps in her cage. Her hind body is still dragged a little bit, but we think it is slowly wearing off. She gave us quite a scare when she tried to reach out to the cage and fell out of Tric's arms, and again a while later, when she tried to lean out of the cage, and fell out. It doesn't seem to have hurt her though. She was just sitting there looking like she was saying: "how the hell did I get here? Wasn't I up there before?" We'll be leaving shortly to visit my parents for father's day, and the rats will be coming with us in their travel cage - we'll be keeping an eye on her. Hopefully she'll be a little less drugged tomorrow.

Since last night, I am a sorta-uncle - we've just heard Tric's (wyldirishtric) sister Alice gave birth to a healthy, 7 pound boy named Doug :)

Did some doodling on Tric's laptop:

dragon flight

Turned out quite reasonable, if I do say so myself.

Snatched from Nelli:

I Am Coyote
</td></tr>
Coyote is a fun-loving goofball and that fits you to a T. Playfully silly, you appear somewhat bumbling at times, and your goofy exterior sometimes makes people forget what a quick mind and razor wit hides behind that amiable grin. In the mythos of the Plains tribes, Coyote is also a Creator, and stole fire as a gift for mankind. Your gift to the world is the creative fire of your quick, capable mind.
