Many of you are familiar with the story about how I acquired Nosebelle at the rat rescue. I was supporting a friend looking for a rat to adopt but Nosebelle chose me as soon as she heard my voice. We never looked back. When she suddenly gave birth a few days later and refused to raise her offspring, I was annoyed but didn’t blame her. I could already tell that Nosebelle was truly special.
Other than with her children, Nosebelle was always eager to make friends with any person, dog, or cat who crossed her path. In fact, she usually behaved as though she had already been friends for ages with everyone she encountered. The two of us were especially close and she always saved plenty of extra licks and smooches for me.
Nosebelle came to me at a low point in my life, helped me enormously, and only asked for attention and treats in return. While I am glad she is no longer struggling with limited mobility, I feel deeply bereft. She was the very best friend I ever had.
Requiescat in pace.
