Farewell to a Good Friend

Zoe, one of my pet rats, passed away the evening of Oct. 12 following a long and courageous battle with cancer. Brought into my life in November of 2004, she had been a source of comfort, laughter, and warmth ever since then. Over the past year, I grew to love her - her inquisitive nature, general friendliness, and even the ingenuity she displayed in figuring out how to get out of her cage. She is survived by her sister Luna and this old curmudgeon. She will be sorely missed.

Aww, Luke, I'm so sorry. Zoe's in a better place, although it's hard to imagine anywhere would be better than with you. Though I never met her, I feel sure she was a wonderful pet and friend.

Deepest affection and sympathy,

Hey, this is the author of wishing we were elsewhere. I just got your comment and I just wanted to say thank you for the encouragement. It's kind of difficult to keep going when nobody reads your stuff. Thanks again.

Sorry to hear that. If I may ask, how did you know it was from the evil C?

Oh man! That is too bad. :( Zoe is a very cool name, BTW. Sorry for your loss.
