Rat Relations

Needing to share a happy here.


So as you guys know, my horde lives in two separate colonies on the two separate stacked levels of my two story Critter Nation. Bridal suite with Black Pete and Custard on top, and the Skittle Girl foursome below.


I like to keep an eye on them to see if we are having any floor to ceiling disputes that can cause injury to dangling appendages. Like cheeky Black Aggie getting a tooth hold on Pete's tail.

So I'm watching them last night, and I notice Black Aggie and Darcy have pulled a spider-pig and are clinging to the roof and upper wall of their cage and working away at ceiling above them. Simultaneously, Pete is directly above their heads working on the floor from the other side. They look like with some effort, they'll dig a hole to each other and finally have a face to face.

Then I realize, wait a minute, they're not chewing on the flooring/ceiling. The girls are trying filch Pete's favorite flannel blanket down through a gap in the bars so they can claim in for their own. Meanwhile, my poor boy is tugging for all he's worth to keep his blanket up top with him.

The girls tug tug tug four inches of blanket down to their side and pause for a rest. Then Pete takes advantage of the slack as they rest to yank it back up on his side. Rinse and repeat for 20 minutes.

I wish I had video.

Hehe, ratties are so funny sometimes! (:

This reminds me of when I recently introduced a girl to my existing pair. I slept with the cage next to my bed so I could hear and intervene with any problems, and one rat woke me up trying to drag my blanket in the cage. Lol

Aren't they hysterical. After a while I was laughing so hard they stopped and all three just stared at me through the bars. Of course then I laughed so hard I couldn't breathe.

It's about 50/50, for all the reasons everyone says. The girls are so silly, but they don't sit still and the boys are little love bugs, but can't be motivated to get off their hammock. LOL
