I am very grateful to all those who asked after the progress of precious little Jayde, the rat. She is doing very well despite being completely stressed out and pissed off with her Elizabethan collar. And mostly because she can’t groom herself. Yes, contrary to popular belief, these little fancy rats are the cleanest of creatures. I am grateful she is doing so well, and especially grateful to the most wonderful staff at Tewantin Veterinary Surgery, for caring for Jayde as if she were a pedigree.
