Maple (Mar. 7, 2011 - Feb. 24, 2013)

It's been over a month since we said good bye to our rat Maple.  She was one of the all brown (or agouti) rats that we decided to keep from Mama's litter.  She loved to explore and get into things.  She was very easy going, and didn't seem to prefer either Ben or me, but was perfectly content with whoever was holding her.  Maple loved food, and therefore was a little chubby.  We are not positive why she passed when she did, but she did so very quickly.  We are thankful that she did not have to suffer long.  We found her buried under the wood chips in the cage, almost like the rest of the rats gave her a little funeral service.  Maple was a good rat and she is missed.
