Oh dear. The weeping and gnashing of teeth that ensued yesterday morning, sadly, had nothing to do with spilling flour or breaking glass. The rat is dead. Sweet Lydia bought herself a hamster last week. Fluffy was gently placed in a dish in her cage last night, and she didn't recover today. Poor Lydia. I have assured her we can buy a new hamster when she feels ready.
