Harlequin: An Obituary

On Saturday, February 26, 2005, Harelquin the rat died.

He had been in decline for some time, his back legs slowly giving up. On Thursday evening he had stopped eating altogether which caused great concern. However on Friday evening the presentation of some oat and apple baby food was graciously accepted.
