    Mercedes pictures...

    ... the last ones for a while!

    I left home to live in London for university last Saturday, as some of you will probably know. I'm enjoying myself here despite a few hiccups, and am looking forward to my course starting and finally beginning my real journey to becoming a vet.

    It did mean that I had to leave Mercy behind. Of course, I will be back home at Christmas time and during all the other term breaks, but it's a long time to be without my little sweetheart. I miss her furry nose poking through the bars every morning, and the noise she makes as she sleeps, and the patter of her paws as she follows me about the room. My family are taking good care of her.

    Here are some photos of my final day with her for a good while.









    She then decided she wanted to jump up onto the bath ledge (she likes running around the bathroom, as I always have let my rats run there free from wires or tight spots. We have underfloor heating and I think she appreciates warm paws! )





    Some more coming....

    Here's a video of her being, for once, quiet. She teeth chatters throughout the video; this is a sign of contentment. I don't half miss that sound!



    Finally, here are some taken a few months ago, I don't think I ever got much chance to post them:







    The latter is my desktop background, so I feel my little girl is always at least partly here.

    Hope you all enjoyed.

    Mercy is very pretty! Sorry to hear you have to leave again. I'm sure she'll be well taken care of and will be very happy to see you when you return!

    Oh my goodness oh my goodness oh my goodness. She is so cute.........
    What a beautiful rattie she is. How you must miss her, but she is I am sure in the best of hands and you are forfilling your dream.
    Best of luck to you. If you want my nieces e-mail let me know. She is a vet here in the US.

    Thanks so much everyone. Indeed, I do miss her, and each day nag my parents to set up their webcam so I can at least see her!

    I'd love to hear from your niece, Monica, I'll drop you a PM.

    OMG I love her little face!
    Her black highlights in her white coat are very pretty too.

    Wishing you well!

    I'm sure time will fly and holiday break will be here before you know it. My first year seemed like it went by in the blink of an eye.
