I'm Emily, from England. I like hockey an awful lot. Like a hell of a lot. I'm planning on becoming an engineer at some point, providing I stay on my current genius streak.

 

This is muesli, she has had multiple strokes and a large tumour on her throat, the vets refuse to operate on her tumour because of the strokes and say the only option is to have her put down. The thing is though, she seems really happy and still runs around her cage like she’s right as rain. My only worry is that my other rat, Nugget whom is considerably larger and more dominant will try to ‘operate’ on her tumour and cause an infection and also eat both of their food. Today I walked in to see them rolling around and Nugget actually drew blood from Muesli’s tumour and Muesli was screaming. I don’t want to have to separate them, but I don’t want Nugget to bully her. Do any of you lovely rattie folk or vets out there have any advice?
