On 7th April Bill-rat died peacefully. He had repeated abscesses (~4 over several months) on each side of his jaw but actually at the time of his death was not suffering from one. He had become quieter and quieter over a couple of months and had started to get very tired after trying to run about. I guess he may have had heart failure although he didn't look blue (which is a sign of oxygen not getting round the body very well). Phil-rat was sad to lose his best friend so ever since then me and Mummy have been living with him to keep him company. Phil-rat keeps trying to convince us to bear his sons, but while we enjoy the mating game every so often we prefer to remain unburdened by motherhood.
