In the past months a lot of things happened regarding our rats. Yukiko died. We got four young rats, Aki, Kiyoko, Ylvi and Una (Ylvi and Una are special, see our rats page). Together with Kazumi and Jun we then had six rats. But Aki got sick almost immediately, the other young rats got sick as well shortly after, but Aki did not recover and died a week later. Kazumi got cancer and had a operation but recovered very well while Jun got an infection of some inner organs and passed away only two days after we noticed that she was ill.
