Thanks for the kind comments. Rocky was only with me for 3 years. She, (Rocky was a girl), caught some kind of respiritory infection. The vet gave me some antibiotics to put in her drinking water. But unfortunatly she was never much of a drinker, her cagemate Rosie got more of it than she did....and she passed a few days later.
I'm at a friend's house at the moment, but I'll burn a candle for Rocky when I get home later....it's just something I do every July 14th.
