@  Mavdb : (21 October 2014 - 06:35 AM) Sorry to hear about Gizmo :(
@  Rattieroos : (20 October 2014 - 11:03 PM) :( to hear about Gizmo CindyR, sending :goodvibes:
@  Tails : (20 October 2014 - 03:53 PM) on the topic of being inconvenienced in favour of rat cuddles, hubby finds himself constantly going to get this, do that for me while Brie or Thyme are sleeping in my hand, since they're getting older now, they seem to be doing it more often lol
@  Caryn : (20 October 2014 - 02:26 PM) Aww no :ratsad: Sorry CindyR! :goodvibes: to Gizmo
@  robynlyn : (20 October 2014 - 10:55 AM) O no. :cry:
@  Tails : (20 October 2014 - 10:46 AM) Aww!! :(
@  CindyR : (20 October 2014 - 08:25 AM) Looks like the lump on Gizmo's face is coming back :( . It's situated a bit further down this time and is still quiet small. Will just keep a eye on it.
@  Mavdb : (20 October 2014 - 07:48 AM) RTG that is so sweet! If you;re lucky enough to have a rat sleep or lie with you you just have to make the sacrifices you need to keep them there!
@  robynlyn : (19 October 2014 - 11:53 PM) Thought I'd let the ratties out for more play but my husband came I'm stood on a noodle made such a loud click that the rats all froze and would not come out a box or my gown a a a a a a I wanna play.
@  Rattieroos : (19 October 2014 - 10:32 PM) :sucker: No I would be doing the same. I was making cards last night with Monty on my lap snoozing away :)
@  raggedtoothg... : (19 October 2014 - 10:17 PM) I'm cradling my Numair in one hand so I have to type everything one-handed. Ah, the things we do for cuddles.
@  Rattieroos : (17 October 2014 - 09:35 PM) Cute, mine nibble the nails but never tried to pull them!
@  CindyR : (17 October 2014 - 04:08 PM) Milo thinks nails stuck to your finger are evil and always trys and pulls them off. Plasters get chewed on, but that's it.
@  Rattieroos : (17 October 2014 - 03:59 PM) Ha ha mine too, they just can't leave plasters alone. Something strange on Mommy's finger...got to get it off!
@  Kat : (17 October 2014 - 11:14 AM) @lollyh lol Mine do that all the time too. As soon as I have a plaster they must check it out and bite it.
@  lollyh : (17 October 2014 - 10:28 AM) rat moment- smudge says plaster on mommies finger is the ENEMY & most be removed with continual force until comes off & then she runs away with it... lol
@  Tails : (16 October 2014 - 05:39 PM) (ok not a week, but around 2 weeks)
@  Tails : (16 October 2014 - 05:22 PM) @rtg it was only a week or two that I found out the one was a boy, so I think they sometimes get huge a few days before they pop...
@  CindyR : (16 October 2014 - 04:40 PM) I know. It sucks when you also look at old photo's and see your lost ones. Just brings back those memories again.
@  lollyh : (16 October 2014 - 01:27 PM) just found videos of my candi girl.bitter sweet.now i just miss her so much. :cry:
