R.I.P. Fluffball

Fluffball was a lovely lively rat who passed away today and left us all feeling very sad at her passing.
Here is your chance to leave a comment to pay your respects to Fluffball...
We will miss her.

Those are really great poems.
We will miss you Fluffball and we will never forget your beautiful smile and I will really miss you forever.
I'm crying right now just thinking that I'll never be able to pick you up again so remember us in
Ratty Heaven and I know all the rats will like you us much as we did.

With love Cheetahlicious.

P.S. Wish I were holding you.

Cheetahlicious said...

I also want to apologize for the people in the class who were laughing and making fun of it.

Love you.

Fluffball seemed like this bundle of energy that wouldn't stop until it came to her little snuggle, usually with Dreamhuntress. DH is very sad. We ALL are! She always seemed to say something in you ear, wether it was a little sniff or a small squeak of... I don't know, laughter? She certainly was a happy little Fluffball! She seemed to be radiant, so soft and furry.
Cheetalicious, we all feel that way, accept for those who laughed, joked, and didn't really think too much about them. To some, the rats there. To me, Fluffball and her sisters glow in their shaded corner of our class.

Dreamhuntress said...

(it's sweet angel)
I would like to say thank you to anyone who shed a tear for Fluffball.Anyway here's the story of the day:
Finally Mr.woody came and opened the door to the class room i walk in the class and i put my chair down.
At the rat cage i saw Eat- alot(known as rat boy)and Neina Marie crowding over at it i t,i scurrie over and i shout out"I want fluff Ball!".i squeeze between them and while Eat-Alot was looking inside the the middel area i looked right down.In the blue box i found adventures Bubbels in there, she jumps onto my hand more bouncer then ever.I put her onto Nenia's shoulder knowing that she would love to hold her.Trying to find Fluff Ball,nearly lying down on the ground i see fluff balll lying there lifeless,i stroke it's stiff,cold body but it didn't move at all."Oh my.Fluff Ball is dead"!Hurridly Roo and Olly came jogging over to see what the problem was,Olly bends down by the cage and Roo looks at Fluff Ball and investigates the body,it's dead.I picked it up and Ilooked at it,wide eyed.Put it in the black cage suggests Wizza. I carefully open the cage and i gentaly placed it in it. I go over to Aqua girl who was under the tabel reading a book. I go in. Finally I felt safe from other people looking at me and i started to cry.

After lunch:
An hour after lunch we line up and it was for Fluff Ball's Funneral.We walk over to the other side of school were ther was peace and quiet.
Mr.woody picked up the spade and started to dig a hole,then Snow girl dropped it in.I went to the far side were it wasn't so crowded and the tears started to blur my eyes.
Later on, I,Kitty Milo,Ashymahsy,Cheetahlicious,and some other girls were teary so we went behind the shed.

I say thank you to Eat alot because he could be brave enough to shed a tear in front of people.And i also thank all the girls in the class who tried to comfort me,I feel like the luckeist(i think iv spelt that wrong)person in the world to have friends like them.

Dreamhuntress said...

Snowy said...

I feel sad that some people diddent think about others feelings by laughing and being disrespectful when we were saying our last good bye to our little friend....

I still cant get over it....
but i no i must move on never to forget what we have lost

Cheetahlicious said...

I felt so sorry for dreamhuntress as her beloved Fluffball passed to the wonderful ratty heaven were there are no rowdy boys and girls and no-one has cancer or lung difficulties.
I know this is the third comment I've left but I've thought about her all day, just lying, motionless in her cage.
That poor lively, fun, adventurous loving ratty who I hope all Room5ians loved.
Here is a poem that I got off the internet and re-worded:
Have You a Pet in Heaven

HAVE YOU A RAT IN HEAVEN? Have you a Rat in Heaven, Lord?
And do you pat her head?
Does he sit up and beg each night
before she goes to bed?

Does she look up with shining eyes
when he sees Your smilling face?
Does she wag her long little tail
when she wants to run a race?

Have You a rat in Heaven, Lord?
Is there room for just one more?
Cause my little rat died today;
she'll be waiting at Your door.

Please take her into Heaven, Lord.
And keep her there for me,
just feed her, pet her, love her, Lord,
thats all she'll ask of Thee.

You can find more of these at:
There are some really nice ones.

This is my favourite:

What is a Pet

A pet is such a special friend,
A friend in many ways.
Sharing love and companionship,
Just looking for your praise.

The clever things they often do
Bring a smile to your face;
And so to them I dedicate,
This small but special place...

And this one is the one that applies to beloved Fluffball"

A Simple Message From Your Pet

by Ken D. Conover

To have loved and then said farewell is better than to have never loved at all.
For all of the times that you stooped and touched my head, fed me my favorite treat and
returned the love that I so unconditionally gave to you. For the care that you gave to me
so unselfishly. For all of these things I am grateful and thankful. I ask that you grieve
not for the loss but rejoice in the fact that we lived, loved and touched each other's lives.
My life was fuller because you were there, not as owner, but as my friend. Today, I am
as I was in my youth. The grass is always green, butterflies flit among fthe flowers and
the sun shines gently down upon all of God's creatures. I can run, jump and play
and do all of the things that I did in my youth. There is no sickness, no aching joints
and no regrets and no aging. We await the arrival of our lifelong companions and know
that togetherness is forever. You live in our hearts as we do in yours. Companions such
as you are very rare and unique. Don't hold the love that you have within yourself.
Give it to another like me and then I will live forever. For love never really dies,
and you are loved and missed as surely as we are.

Your pet in heaven.

B.T.W. The first one was for a dog but I liked it so much that I had to put it in and re-word it.

Aquagirl said...

I'm going to miss fluffball maybe not as much as Dreamhunctress or snow girl but it will be a bit strange only having four rats and not five. rest in peace fluffball

awesomo4000 said...

flower kitty said...

It was so sad seeing Fluffball lying dead in the cage.
We'll all miss her.

R.I.P. Fluffball
Flower Kitty

P.S. I hope there is a heaven for rats.

Cheetahlicious said...

The saddest bit was seeing that happy, playful ball of fluff just lying in her cage so motionless and I'm crying again not helped by the fact that I'm listening to Flying Without Wings.
This is the fifth comment I've left on this post but I really love Fluffball.
B.T.W. Would you guys like it if I got a little engraved thing and we found a way to stop it from being kicked or stolen by stupid people.

Queenie said...

We will miss you so much fluffball.We loved how you ran around and then snuggled into us.

That is a great idea cheetahlicious.i would like it.

Marz Barz said...

Dear Fluffball. You were a good rat, a clean rat, a safe rat, a nice rat. We all loved you dearly fluffball, never forget that. We may have shed a tear for you fluffball, and we continue to do so today. Although you may have gone Fluffball, you still linger in our hearts. how come you had to go Fluffball? Oh couldn't you have stayed? Why did you have to leave, Fluffball? You were our good Mate. We loved as one of the classmates, Fluffball. If you are reading this Fluffball, I want you to know. Have a good rest, Fluffball. R.I.P

It is very sad poor Fluffy died. But, as I thought when I 19-year-old cat I knew well died, life has to move on. I think I might cry now. Anyway, we just have to keep going. Life goes foward, in a straight line or a wheel, who knows. But we can't stop, we can't go backwards, as I want to do. We have to go fowards, walk fowards, look fowards. Fluffball will be with us every step of the way, on our shoulder, in our jumper. She will be there to comfort us when we cry. We may be the least bit cheerful when we mourn for her, because she is there. She is the jokes that are spoken in the misty winter air, or the hot thick summers'. She Is our motor in our hearts, and she driving us fowards, and no matter what we think, her and other deceased oved-ones are pushing us to the future, to our goals and to our destiny. But, we can always look back with compassion and sorrow.
Oh dear. Yeah, the sadness is infectious on this page.

Neina-Marie said...

Oh, I know a song that goes like that:

Can't stand still, gotta keep on movin',
down the road,
can't stand still gotta lend a hand, gotta share the load.
Gotta move like life does, down the rack
Can't stand still gotta keep on movin' and I won't turn back.

I take three steps foward,
and two steps back,
But I know I'll see a light ahead when things look black,
Oh I may slow down,
But I won't retreat,
So even if I stop I'll be on my own two feet!

Don't stand still.

Oh yeah, RIP Fluffy. We all miss you.

Today I made a grave stone for Fluffball out of pumice. It looks sort of like a grave stone to me but the surface is a bit uneven. I just hope that on tuesday Mr.Woody allows the people who REALLY care about her to come with me to place the grve stone on her grave.

We will all remember fluffball for the great little rat that she well and truly was. I remember once, when I finally got to hold fluffball, she huddle deep into the depths of a fold in my jersey, and all I could see was an adorable ball of fluff, warm,a joy to pat as she snuggled up close. Snowy came passed, and got out fluffball's medicine, and as soon as fluffball saw it, she huddled back down again, not wanting to take her medicine!
We will all miss you so much, and your four other sister will too.
We love you.
R.I.P Little fluff ball,
Enjoy rat heaven.

Dreamhuntress said...

When was Fluffball's birth date?

Neina-Marie said...

I dunno DH.
Here is a poem that should hopefully be on Writers Window.
I wrote it.

You're small and meek
Simple and Sweet
Hugging up to me each week

You're coloured cream
A beautiful dream
So soft I could just stand and scream

So why did you leave us
On that cold autumn night
when we were asleep
And things were alright?

You made torture a game
You made me insane
You helped the devil regain

You let me fall
Into dispair, I recall
It was a horrible sensation overall

When we went home
The day you went
Our life with you
Had been savoured, now spent

So when the others pass away
Just give us a day
To say goodbye and say 'It's OK'?

Something was wrong
Sonething was gone
Your message took too long

And now my tears roll
Down my face
Your death was a lesson
I am a disgrace
