Vera (RIP)

Origin: Pixie Rabbit & Rodent Rescue
Born: July 2013
Died: 2 December 2015: 29 months
Cause of death: Unknown (passed away at home)
Colour/variety: Black hooded
Health: Resp infection at 21 months
Weight: 342g
Temperament: Curious and bold, although not very used to handling. Very stroppy with her cagemates.

Vera had been looking skinny and tired for a while, so finding her (just a couple of weeks after her sister) was not hugely surprising but it is still always a shock. RIP my Vera; an absolute pain in the backside at times; star of one of my favourite rat videos ever; and mellowed beautifully with age.


Vera and Pushkin came into rescue after their previous owner had a change in circumstances and were no longer able to keep them. I fell head over heels in love and were so happy when they were finally able to join my gang here! They are both lovely girls, although underweight with matchstick tails and not desperately used to handling, but despite this they have clearly been quite well looked after in their previous home. They initially settled in well (after a long tricky intro) but ended up moving groups several times as Vera has a proper temper and is a real little bolshie madam!
