Ratties Update

I have worked out how to give Evie Echinacea - put it on a Cheddar biscuit. Both the girls go crazy for them! Of course Minnie licks the Echinacea off first because unlike her sister she seems to actually enjoy it. I wonder what she'll think when I stop giving it to them, which'll have to be soon.

Also, they broke their wheel by chewing through a bit of plastic. They were left wheeless for a day, to give them time to think about what they did and the consequences of their actions. Or to give me time to figure out a way to fix it. I put it back together using a couple of paperclips and when I put it back in their cage Minnie jumped on it before I'd even had time to finish setting it up! Then Evie slept in it. I guess they really missed their wheel.

But this morning I saw both the paperclips have gone and the wheel is clearly about to fall off again. I had to leave so didn't have time to do anything at that point though. I wonder how long it'll take them to knock it down, and where the paperclips went. They wouldn't try to eat them, would they? Nah, they're too smart for that.

I hope.

Glad the rats are doing well. I'm getting my gerbils back today. :D

When are you disappearing for Easter?

I've got a friend staying with me this week so not sure how you might feel about meeting him, but if you fancy popping round for a bit then you can meet my baby gerbils. They're gorgeous. :-P

Failing that, have fun getting ready to leave and stuff I guess.

Aww, I'm home now. I was busy packing and didn't come online cos it's essay week and all the computers were being used. But baby gerbils! I'd have loved to see them.

When you back? They might still be babies then.

Yay ratties. My ratties don't have a wheel. They have wheel balls but they don't play in them. Annoying buggers.

I doubt they'd eat metal, their cage is metal and they don't eat that. Probably doesn't taste too good.

My ratties love their wheel in the extreme.

I noticed that they tried to nibble on one of the paperclips. They probably gave up pretty quickly though.
