El Blanco was my favorite rat. He was the most trusted of all of the rats I owned up to his death. I could leave him out of the cage for hours at end and not worry about him chewing on things, running away or getting into any mischief. In December 2015, he was sick. He was not eating anything. He was drinking though. Eventually he was eating again, but he was super skinny. I was hoping he would make it to the new year, which he did.
Sadly on January 10, 2016, he passed away in his sleep. It was a sad moment for me. I will never find another rat like him.
