I am still in shock. I just buried Flurry. I went to clean cages last night and found Flurry's body. It was sudden and completely unexpected. He was always the biggest and strongest of the Ohio brothers. He would have been 2 years old next week. Flurry was definitely the alpha rat of the cage, but he was also the friendliest with people. Often during cage cleaning time he'd jump on my lap and climb into my arms. Sometimes it was just so he could use me as a ladder to climb onto the table...but sometimes it was for a cuddle. I still can't believe he's gone.
