"Good night, Future Boy."  
April, 2003 - April 7, 2005

McFly, I loved you, even when you weren't a good rat. You sat inside my shirt. You licked me and cleaned under my nails for me and even tried to clean my lips and teeth. I took you with me to my last day of high school the day after I got you. I took you with me to Columbus and hid you in my dorm room, and some days you were the only thing there that I could like. You were selfish and beautiful and perfect and I worried over you as much as I possibly could. If you had been human, I would have married you.

I'm sorry you became so aggressive, but I don't blame you. I wish I could have taken better care of you after you bit me, but it was hard. But I still loved you. I'm still glad I got you. Thank you for being with me.

Oh, he was so cute! I'm terribly sorry.

Is that how long rats usually live?

Thank you. And, yes, pet rats generally seem to live for around two years, which is such a devastatingly short time for such intelligent and generally personable creatures. Occasionally you'll hear anecdotes about rats that stick around for up to five years, but that's not usual.
