Luke's beloved fat rat, Bob, passed away today. Bob had been battling a very large mammary tumor, which had grown to the size of a large tangerine. The tumor was accounting for half of Bob's body weight, and she could no longer breath easily nor move around.
So with a sad heart, we said goodbye to Bob. Luke was very brave, but very saddened too. Now, he's just going to have to give Fred all the love and affection that Bob gave.
If you think of it, send Luke a kind word. He's still very sad. This was his very first pet.
