Well, Chloe was set to have her tumor removed on the 30th, but I came home from Kentucky to an extremely ill Chloe. There is no way she can make it through the surgery, and if she did, the illness would take her after surgery. Instead of surgery, she will be put to sleep. :( :( :( I don't even want to think about the suffering she is going through, I feel horrible, I wish I could take the pain from her and suffer it myself. I was really looking forward to having the tumor removed so she could live a normal life until the end. I guess I set my hopes too high. :(

She has been in the "rat hospital" cage for a little over a week and she can barely walk, her hair is on end, there is blood near her eye (I think she scratched it), she can barely drink, and she can barely eat. She looks terrible. :( I was so afraid this was going to happen. My dad did a wonderful job caring for her while I was gone, he finger fed her, held the water bottle so she could drink easier, cleaned her cage, etc- I am glad she got good care while I was gone.

I just hope she knows how much I love her and how sorry I am that she had to deal with this damn tumor. I wish the tumor could feel pain, I would make sure it suffered for making my Chloe suffer. :(

I don't want to say good-bye, I just got home, and already I have to ready to say good-bye to her again, but this time forever. At least her sister (along with the other ratties) will welcome her and keep her company up there until I get up there to care for them again.

I'm so sorry Chloe, I love you.

Dear Laura, I am so sorry about your dear little Chloe. Their life span is just too short, isn't it?? But she had the best "Mom" a rattie could EVER hope for, and the best life possible. Rest in peace, sweet Rattie!!!

I'm so sorry! I lost my own Chloe recently, and I know how much heartbreak it is to lose our ratty friends. *Hug* Play well at the Rainbow Bridge little friend. :(

OMG! Poor Poor Chloe.

I bet she thanks you with all her little rattie heart for all the love and kindness you have showed her these past months. I know she knows the love you feel for her and I'm sure she returns it with all her lil heart.

I'm so sorry!

Oh no! Poor Chloe. RIP sweet Chloe everyone will miss you! Saying goodbye for the last time is always the hardest!:( At least Chloe won't be suffering anymore. She can now prance around at the Rainbow Bridge watching over you everyday.

I've lost 4 beloved rabbits that I have been so close too in the past and it was the hardest thing ever. I no longer am depressed about it but I deeply miss them.

Everyone here will help you through this tough time. We all feel for you!

Give Chloe lots of hugs and kisses and tears. I took a peice of my bunnies fur,a turd,and part of a nail and put it in a tic tac container for a memorial. I took pictures,harness's,half eaten treats and anything that resembles my rabbits who passed on or are about too and put it in a box. This is my memorial box, it makes me think back of how silly and sweet my bunnies where,yes sometimes it makes me sad but it's well worth it.

I'm so sorry about Chloe. :( You are such a great owner though. I know all your rats lived great lives because of you.

I'm sorry about Chloe it's very hard to lose such a special friend!:(

Oh, dear. Poor you, and poor Chloe.

The hardest part of loving little friends
Is that their flames, though bright
Flicker out too soon.

Their delicate paw prints
Stay on our hearts
Longer by far than
Their whole span of time on Earth.

But they know, must know they must
How fiercely we love them
And that love will carry them
Straight to the happy fields at the Rainbow Bridge
And someday, with us, to heaven.

What Chloe knows and always knew, more than pain, more than hunger, more than anything, is that you love her.

I firmly believe love is the only thing we can take with us into the next life. Chloe was covered with love!

08-29-2004, 05:42 PM
I'm so sorry. :( It really sounds like she had a great mom though and she knew how much you cared about her. Cherish your memories and someday she'll be waiting for you at the rb where you can both play some day. Many hugs to you, I wish you luck in getting through this hard time. Kisses to dear Chloe!!
