one passing, one arrival
Vesta passed sometime during the night. She is the lighter colored rat in the forefront. Short lives, really.... rats have about a 2-3 year expectancy. Sigh. And, last night, a stray kitten ended up in the drainage ditch before the storm...could not very well leave it there, so it is ensconced in the guest bathroom (where is it mewling LOUDLY and driving the rest of our residents NUTS).
Anyone need a kitten? Absolutely adorable... but we are "AT CAPACITY"!!!
