Sneezy Obituary

Sneezy, 2.5, of Orlando, FL passed away sometime around Sunday as a presumed result of her tumor. She is survived by her adopted human family, mother, brother, and two sisters. Sneezy will always be remembered for rivaling with Nosebelle over who would sit on my shoulder and lick my cheek. After a furious lick fest and long after Nosebelle had lost interest and moved to my other shoulder, Sneezy would remain, snoring gently next to my ear. With her shiny white coat and scarlet eyes, Sneezy was a sweet tempered beauty that will be missed by all who knew her.

Requiescat in pace.

Thank you. I wish she was still with me but I know her tumors were making her life more difficult and at least she is not dealing with that anymore.

Yes, it has been every other Sunday for a week now. I knew this time would come since they are all the same age but it is still so hard.

How long could a tumor free rat be expected to live? I'm assuming she was albino? I've always found albino rats quite beautiful. When I was a kid I cared for a neighbors when they went on vacation. She was very sweet. Her name was Love.

Pet rats normally live 2-3 years but it can be much shorter or longer depending on quality of care and genetics. Nosebelle will be 3.5 next month and her kids are all 8 months younger.

Sneezy wasn't an albino, as far as I can tell, but a pink eyed white. They basically look the same though.

Love is a great name for an albino rat and when handled well from a young age, ratties tend to be very sweet and loving to their humans :) I'm glad you got to pet sit for her. I used to watch my neighbor's cat as a kid and really loved it since I come from a dog family. His name was Elwood and he was the best Siamese ever.
