Maybe getting some new rats in the near future.
There are two boys needing to be adopted.I was talking with the guy who has them for awhile now and they are not working out wirth his other boys.So I am hoping to go see them soon.I was supposed to see them last weekend,but I stepped on a nail and couldn't walk.
Also just got an email today from a breeder.Awhile back...like a few months ago,I put my name on her waiting list.She didn't have litters at the time,but was planning on breeding rexes.Well I put my name down and actually forgot about her,since it was awhile.She contacted me this morning to let me know she has babies available.So the weekend I think I am going to go see!
And this morning I think Ronnie and Armin had a little "fight".They are sleeping at opposite ends of the cage!
I'd grab those boys up right away if I could.
But four rats seem to be my limit while with my parents (a bigger number then expected!). I remember seeing you talking about your foot - is it doing better? Hope it's not giving you too much trouble.
Oh that's good, about the breeder!! I've been wanting a rex as well. I think in about a year/year and a half, I'll breed Da Vinci, my hairless rat, just so he "lives on". A female rex with a hairless should give me some naked babies, if I remember correctly. I have a while to do my research! That year will be the best anyways, as it won't be very hectic and they'll get the time and money needed.
Shiloh has been on meds for the past two weeks for URI. He is much better now. Last weekend my boyfriend and I went to visit my old college and I brought Shiloh so he could get his meds twice a day. We were in a hotel and gave him an entire bed to himself using things from the room like the ice bucket and trash cans for him to play in/on/around.
Glad to hear he's doing better.
I bet he really enjoyed the bed! Hopefully all the little rat pellets were cleaned up, or the maids will be surprised/horrified!
I really want a second ratty, but I don't have the funds to pay for the vet since I got robbed so it would be very selfish. And even more selfish since my boyfriend does NOT want a second ratty.
Louna got to see some of my friends at school yesterday, she was sooo happy! she was licking everyone's hands, and they gave her some broccoli so of couuuurse she was ecstatic! now everyone loves rats
Someday soon you'll get another ratty.
It's very good of you to think with a sound mind about this. It's hard when you see really cute rats in pet stores and on line! I'm sure the rat picture thread doesn't help.
I took Da Vinci to the pet store with me when I went to get Picasso sexed (he's a boy for sure!!). Da Vinci was quite the celebrity! All the little kids were petting his nose! He's used to laying in my hoodie pocket - I tend to take him on car rides with my boyfriend and I. Sadly it's getting chilly out, so I'll have to either be quick to the car or he'll have to wait at home. Or I'll buy him a Bill Cosby Sweater.
Oh, I love coming home to little noses poking out at me. I go over to the young-boys cage and stick my fingers in at them, and they kiss and lick and nibble!
Good lord, Remmy and Jacopo are going to teach Picasso how to beg at the door!! How am I going to say NO to all three faces? >.< They're going to get fat off treats! Then I look over and see Da Vinci, climbed up on the cage, and I have to sit and hold him a few minutes. No matter how my day goes, it always makes it better.
ApparentlyI had a small gap in my cage! I looked over yesterday, sick as a dog, and saw Picasso climbing on the OUTSIDE of the cage! I thought I was hallucinating! I found the small gap, tested it by letting him get back into the cage through it, and then wired it shut. God, if that happened at night, with my cats... >.< But it's all well now. I check it every day to make sure, and do head counts.
