I came home one day and Curly was struggling to breathe. I drove her to the emergency vet, but she didn't survive the night despite antibiotics and oxygen. It was our introduction to how fast a rat can be lost. We were lucky and the other rats never even coughed.
Curly was one of our first, and she was such a strong personality, bossy and threw her naked butt around a lot. We now have 7 rats, not one of which is hairless. It may be a long while before we have another hairless. Curly's life though brief will be remembered.
