@  Rattieroos : (05 May 2016 - 10:54 AM) @Moose lol tell Bollie 'way to go' cuddles are better than workouts :Kiss: lol
@  Roonel : (04 May 2016 - 09:46 PM) @Ratieroos, all your ratties are super young then! Our George and Charlie are both going on 2 ½ and still in great shape, especially Charlie. I think - and hope - they will live forever :)
@  DiscoMoose : (04 May 2016 - 08:30 PM) Bollie is refusing to let me do my workout, he is demanding cuddles :tummykiss:

@  Rattieroos : (04 May 2016 - 12:36 PM) Hahaha lol love the 'may the 4th be with you' I only saw it now.... You Caryn??
@  Rattieroos : (04 May 2016 - 12:34 PM) Hey Roo, she was Patches sister and Patchie was one and a half when she died so I think she's around one year and 8 months now. She's still so tiny and soft though...softest rat we've ever had and daddy's favorite..after Mischief I think Hayley is his second heart rat. Hayley is the only one left of my four with her, Patches, Brian and Stewie. Her and Thunder seem to be good together now. :)
@  Roonel : (04 May 2016 - 10:26 AM) How old is Hayley now, Rattieroos?
@  Rattieroos : (03 May 2016 - 08:38 PM) Ok so I'm back to 3 cages again.... Hayley got a nasty gash after some stand off with the little girls..it was way more than just break surface of skin...feared next time to be worse so I've put the 3 little misses (Roxie, Dora and FiFi) into the gentleman's cage in the lounge and Haley and Thunder are happily sharing the mansion. Seems a bit much to have two rats in the mansion but it fits next to my bed and they're skittish around everyone else so in my room they stay...along with my four 'wild' boys on dads side of the bed. At least the 3 little ones aren't alone and neither is Thunder. After making the change I could see the difference in both Thunde and Hayley almost immedietly, during free time they would just hide and wanted out the cage all the time now they're chilled in the cage and when they come out they have no fear they're all over the place just like they used to be. So one more cage to clean as opposed to happy rats...I can't compare. Hayley is now my oldest ratty and I have to keep her safe :ratyes:
@  Rattieroos : (03 May 2016 - 08:30 PM) Thanks Lolly, Bubble seems to be okay but still on go slow as far as any soft food and treats goes. If it flares up again, time for more invasive tests. I want to know what's wrong!! I still owe about R3000 thank goodness I have a good vet who trusts that I'll pay back and I do every month as I can. I agree with Moose your rats come first but hopefully some money will come in soon to help you get both. If only you could pay off for Honey. I'm :yay: getting my OUTBONUS at the end of this month which will cover our 3 that ordered :happydance: got the confirmation today about the OUTsurance payout. As for the rest of you who might have the means COME ON and order your hoodies.....pleeeaaasse ??? :ratyes:
@  DiscoMoose : (03 May 2016 - 04:39 PM) I know the feeling :/ But your rattie's health comes first, of course! I hope you get your payments when you're supposed to get them too. *hugs*
@  lollyh : (03 May 2016 - 10:54 AM) i so wish i could order tails. :( .my toughts-if i get in some payments before the 8th.i will get one but then honey needs to be spayed & tumor removal.so now i don't know what to do. :rolleyes:
@  lollyh : (03 May 2016 - 10:52 AM) oh same roos.i am so sorry.poor bubble.hope he gets better soon.
