About Hector

Hector came to live with his cousins at Ratty Corner at seven weeks old. His great grandfather Elgar is the brother of Grace, from whom many of my other rats are descended.

Hector has grown into a big studly buck with the unfortunate habit of climbing to high places and then falling off when he tries to climb down. I've worked to make easy ways down around the rat room, which seems to have reduced his number of falls.

    20th November 2012 - neck abscess. Labs showed Bacteroides sp. - the same as the contagious abscesses we had before. Moved the whole cage group downstairs to avoid spreading it. Clavaseptin.
    26th April 2013 - Nose bleeds. Probably a nasal tumour, but had some antibiotics just in case. Hoping it will ease off for a while before he has to be put to sleep.
    30th June 2013 - Has been fine since April. His brother died a week ago, and he's gone downhill since then. Stopped eating yesterday, and passed away this evening.


    No problems
