New Rat (Maggie) Update :o)
Maggie my new rat and Mousie Mousie are getting along quite well so far. I am very pleased. It is so much fun to watch them. I wish that I had done this long ago. They are adorable together. They have been sleeping in separate corners since I got Maggie, but when I got up yesterday morning, I got quite the scare! I couldn't find Maggie anywhere. She was just nowhere to be seen. Now, there is a big ball type nest in the cage, but I didn't think that they would bond that quickly, so my only thought was that somehow, she escaped from the cage. But, just in case, I opened the cage and looked first in the bed. I got some snacks and called to Mousie Mousie and Maggie. WOW! TWO little noses peeked out of the nest! How wonderful. They seem to have become friends already. They follow each other around so cute and when it is feeding time, they each come for their snack and then eat by each other, no fighting. I just love them! And Mousie Mousie looks so much happier. And little Maggie looks pretty happy too! Her fate at the pet store wasn't good. She was going to be food. Now, she will live her life out as a buddy!
