Ollie crossed the Rainbow Bridge in the early hours of the morning. About a week ago I think he suffered a stroke. He wasn't paralyzed, but he wasn't really moving and he couldn't eat on his own. I'd been feeding him by hand, but he'd perk up and sit up as I held him and he ate. But I think he suffered another stroke while I was at work last night, as I found him dead when I got home this morning. We were never that close, but we bonded this past week-he never wanted to be held, or even petted before. Still, he was a good rat and he will be missed.
