See this pretty lady? Her name is Eleanor and she’s the sweetest rat in the entire world. She lives to give kisses. For those unfamiliar with rats, the stuff around her eyes and nose in the first picture isn’t blood- it’s porphyrin, which is normal in rats in small amounts. Rats usually only get a lot of porphyrin around their nose and eyes when they’re sick. Unfortunately for my sweet baby, Eleanor has a tumor- you can see it in the picture on the right.
Eleanor isn’t a spring chicken, but she’s very happy and otherwise healthy. She’s still very active and just as friendly as ever, but her tumor is growing waaaay too quickly, and she’s ALWAYS hungry but ins’t gaining weight because it’s all going to her tumor. I really, really need to take her to the vet, but I’ve been waiting for a refund check that hasn’t come in yet.
So I’m going to be doing a sale at my Etsy store, where I sell pet beds for small critters like Eleanor! If you go there and use the coupon code saveeleanor before May 31st, you’ll receive a 10% discount on your order. You’ll get something nice for your pet, and help me get Elly the treatment she needs!
Thank you for reading, and I would appreciate it if you would reblog this post so that others can see!
