Sad News and Art Updates

Awesome header artwork by Damalynn :heart:




Please do not ask! I hate saying no, but I really don't have time for any of these right now.

***************





Sadly, little Ati the rat passed away recently from a virus. You can read more about the circumstances here: rileymai.deviantart.com/journa…

As a rat owner who has kept these lovely little creatures for many years, I know how easy it is for respiratory infections to spread and how difficult it is to treat. Thank you to everyone who helped with donations and commissions for Ati. At least the remaining donations will go toward the cost of treating the other rats in the rescue.

If you are waiting on art from me, please check my front page (bottom left corner). Your DA username should be listed there, along with the status of your art. Please let me know if something is missing, but I am pretty sure that everything is there! It is also approximately in the order in which your art is to be completed, and I do plan to have all of the charity commissions finished by the end of this month, barring emergency circumstances.

That being said, my main focus right now is on completing artwork, so I will probably be even slower than usual in replying to messages here. I'm also late in updating both Soldier and Pull Down Heaven, but I am planning on having a page of each completed this weekend! :D Both pages are currently in the colouring stage. I also have included both of these comics (and other planned personal projects) on my art status box, so you can check periodically to see how they are coming along if you are interested. Just a word of warning... once my owed art is completed, I will be mostly focused on those comics, so don't expect much in the way of stand alone artwork.


A quick feature of art for me:

I nearly cried when I read *rileymai's journal. It's so awful that things like that can happen so needlessly, even with the best care they can get. Respiratory infections are disasters for their little bodies.. It struck home with me because my boy passed away recently after a very long struggle with mycoplasma flare ups. Every time we finished medication for him and things started looking up he would get worse. :worry:

I can't imagine how she must be feeling right now, to lose so many at once. I hope things get better for her and their rescue. Things like this are terribly sad but I hope that they can make a smooth recovery and no more ratties will suffer from it. :(

Yes, I was pretty bummed out when I read her journal. I was really hoping that little Ati would pull through. I'm just glad that at least all of the donations will go toward getting their other rats better. I know exactly how that feels; I went through the same thing when I ran my own little rat rescue many years ago. It's thoroughly crushing when half of your rat friends get sick and die seemingly overnight. The only thing that really helped me feel better was knowing that they had a good life until then.

I'm sorry to hear that you lost one of your boys recently. :( It never gets any easier to lose a ratty.

That's life. Sometimes it just goes this way.

It's an unfortunate truth of life! I'm just glad that their other rats can at least get the treatment they need now.

After all death is an important part of life... and often enough, you sadly can't do anything about it.

I was pretty bummed out when I heard the news. :( But at least little Ati was loved and cared for before she passed, so that makes me feel a bit better. :) Plus, the other rats will now be able to get treatment for their infections from the donation money. My heart really goes out to the folks running the rescue, though. I had the same thing happen to me when I ran a little rat rescue from home as well, and it's a terrible thing to have to deal with.

definitely, its better to be comfortable and loved than alone in the end. and im glad that the money can still go to a good cause <3 i understand completely. im working at a vets this summer, and just today a cat came in that was feral. he wasn't vaccinated, and no one could pay for him, so he had to be put down. its so sad when an animal looses its life, especially since if humans were more responsible for their animals, these things could be prevented.

Yeah, I was pretty bummed out to hear about it. :( But at least she experienced love and affection before she passed on. Knowing that makes me feel better about it. :)
