Okay, I'm dog tired but home. And home with me are my three new rat kids.
My two survivors the College Boys, now officially named Waddel and Luster B. Lustrat. And my new tiny talented and tenacious terror, Clara the Impossible Girl. :D Huzzah!
And now I'm off to bed. Pfew.
I know I only lurk mostly these days. I've been exhausted, overworked, and kind of forum-ed out of late. I apologize. But I wanted to share some news and updates.
First of all, an update on my current Ghost Girls.
Aggie: Has been struggling with a neck abscess. There is a suspicion that...
I've already lost one of my boys to myco related illness.
Of my two hairless twins Skinner and Melon, the latter currently has issues with myco. He's on ABs and will be for the remainder of his life. With the two they were born close enough to identical that I had to do a careful body...
January 26 2010- Feb 27 2012
I just spent the last 3 weeks working closely with Lilspaz and reading through her Memorials, I almost can’t help taking a page from her book and offering a memorial after her example for my boy Jeffrey. She’s right. It helps so much to do this.
Gasp. What ees zees? Ze nom noms? Sacre...I am thwarted by Ze Lid!
Lessee, thinkin' it unscrews under here....
Okay, I think if we push together. One, two, three...!
Woah! Too much pushing! Too much pushing!
Ack! Floppity Floppity thump.
You didn't see that.
I haven't updated in a rat's age on my six boys, and Vladina poked a (sweet) little stick under my ribs to remind me.
The hairless duo Melon and Skinner are doing great. The neuter this summer and the intervening time to work through any lingering cage disputes has worked wonders on my two...
My poor Zmei. Why is it my boys only get sick on holidays when the vets aren't around? His myco flared up big time this weekend, and I found him puffy and curled up in a corner huffing for breath. He scared me badly. He wouldn't eat, and he wouldn't move. I couldn't even coax him to...
My six boys live in the same cage and are fed at the same time. This is problematic for weight management. My two small and svelt nakeds are at the bottom of the social hierarchy and are apt to get their food taken from them. I have to monitor to make sure they get enough.
And then there...
Random Ghostboy update for you all. The six boys are doing well, with a few bumps in the road, pun intended.
Just one week after my last update with the Corn Cob Night pics, I noticed a lump on Tucker about the size of a grape. My poor big man. For anyone who doesn't know...
I've been busy with summer programming at my job so it's been forever since I posted. I snapped some long overdue pics of the boys tonight for you guys though. The Boys were eating their first corn on the cob.
Here we come, walking down the street. We get the funniest looks from everyone...
Zmei and Black Pete are now home. What a day! These two boys are going to be extra special, I can tell. 7 hour day trip behind my husband and I, and the kids are settling in.
Zmei is a black eyed seal point satin Siamese. He's right at 9 weeks old. My gosh he's so great. He was the...
Today I let Tucker and Jeffrey free range in the bathroom. Since it's cold as Christmas outside, I cleaned their cage in the garden tub. It needed a good soaking so I got some dish detergent and filled the tub. The boys couldn't resist investigating to see what I was doing to /their/...
Heh, the thread title reminds me of an add on for a fortune cookie. "You will experience much happiness...naked".
Anyway, GGMR. It's struck.
I've been coveting hairless rats since the day I picked up my black boys and the ever pink and ever charming naked Cowboy demanded that I get over...
My three boys being sleepy and cute this afternoon. New Hammock Day!
Tucker and Jeffrey doing their impression of Yin/Yang.
My very first Yawn picture! Tucker seems to think nothing is more comfortable than using Windham as a cushion.
Windham the wallflower captured in a rare omgthud...
Been awhile since I've posted pics. Jeffrey, Tucker, and Windham freeranging.

******* Shoulder Shrug.
Me, Windham, and Jeffrey's Goulies.
"Vossy-raptor" Jeffrey destroys...
It's been a bit since I uploaded some pictures.
Here's a few of the latest.
First up, The boys spent some time hanging out watching TV on our coffee table at the door of their Bowl Den. Then a nommy pic of Jeffrey with his first watermelon, and finally a thudpic.
Instead of The Three...
We free ranged in the bathroom tonight and took some shots.

Ninja-rat is master of hiding in plain sight.
Th-th-th-that's all folks.
