Thor was an old rescue rat born inbetween october 2006 and october 2007 (no one knew his real age). He passed away April the 15th 2010 during his sleep... Good bye my little friend
This little guy was about to be killed by a breeder who wanted to get rid of all his breeding stock (over 60 rats).
He came from the same rescue mission as my Bélial.
All of them suffered from several diseases, many of them died because they had suffered too much and couldn't be healed anymore.
I took six of these ratties home as a foster family and adopted two of them (Bélial and Thor). The four other ones have found great families, some of the ratties from the same rescue mission are still up for adoption in other foster families and animal shelters.
Thor was blind and suffered from chronical respiratory troubles.
Although he was afraid of humans and "roared" when breathing when I took him home, he learnt to trust human beings and healed (but he remained blind).
At the beginning, he couldn't move because he had lived in a very small box for over two years. He ended running everywhere after some months home and played with my hands and his rattie friends.
He was also able to breathe without making noise anymore.
Thor loved to explore my house although he could not see anything, he was one of the most curious rats ever.
I would have NEVER imagined such a hurt rattie would heal that well and would learn to love humans... I loved him very much and I miss him... I know he has left peacefully though... Stock used :
