So, I guess this is the longest comic I've made so far. I just put everything I felt in there, pretty much.

Maaan, if I was an admin or moderator or whatev, I would fp this in a heartbeat.

The feels! It was very well done. Props to you for putting so much in such a small amount of space. Very touching.

Saddest comic I have read in a long time. The fact it hits pretty close to home for most pet owners when their pet is slowly dying and when they can not do anything for it except try to make them as comfortable as possible.

Beautiful, sad, and very emotional.

manly tears were shed.

Very strong delivery, your ability to communicate personal feelings without it becoming in any sense melodramatic or forced is amazing.

Most of your comics have this but i guess the sad theme makes this one stand out even more.

i'm a little at loss for words.

Turning an event like that in a strong emotive work like this is something beautiful to behold.

Thanx for letting us take a peek into your life. Sorry for your loss. One can't read this and not love the little rat.

Hey, thanks. I was actually a bit scared it would come across as melodramatic to other people, but apparently it's okay. It really does a lot to read how others kind of feel what I meant.

My goodness. I almost started crying at the end with the stethoscope. This really got to me and reminds me of one of the reasons why I joined Newgrounds all those years ago for art just like this.

It was really pretty hard to hear how her heart slowed and stopped like that. And thank you.

Such a simple story. Such a profound story.
Blast it all - you had me in tears.
Over a rodent.
A drawn rodent!

Mind, I'm aware that this may well be biographical - and if so, sympathies.
Full marks the frighteningly effective way you toy with the readers emotions, or rather, make the readers feel what you want them to feel.

Oh, thank you! And yes, it's autobiographical.
