Last night, somewhere around 3am - we lost our big ratty baby, Bear.

She wasn’t always a big girl, but she was dense. That never stopped her from running around chasing a banana, or following Lily or Rei around the room. She was a great friend and sister in that way - even though Bear just wanted to munch some snacks and take naps, she was always be their sides, as well as ours.

Bear came into our lives when we were grieving for Emmy, and was there for us when we lost her friend Lily. She helped us through every bad day we had just by being an adorable, soft friend with an intense love of food.

The rat mansion seems a little bigger today, but I take solace in knowing that Bear is watching over me, Kelly, and Rei, with a fresh banana slice in her mouth, and Emmy and Lily by her side.

We all love you,Bear - and we miss you like crazy already. Enjoy your cardboard fields and banana forests and thank you for everything.
