I knew that 2014 will be a more difficult year for my pet rats and me. Already 3 weeks ago I spotted that Mariko got a very lil lump. I didn't expect that Mari(ko) would get a lump right now. She is only 1 year and three month old - I rather expected Vanilla or Carli would get another one because they are both in that typical "age" for benign tumours.
Well, I went to my vet and again and again and we delayed the surgery appointment twice because Mari caught a cold - a pretty persistent one which couldn't be fought with common antibiotics. In order Mari will be fit for her upcoming surgery, I had to go with her to the vet four times in a row and my vet had to "dope" her healthy. Last friday then, which was also my very last working day at my current working place, Mari went in surgery. Luckily Don could bring Mariko to the vet in the morning and in the afternoon we picked her up again together.

I hope Mari will forgive me for bringing her to the vet that often - I simply needed to do this. ;-) She is such a lil diva....
