@  Caryn : (16 April 2014 - 12:27 PM) The headspot girl available reminds me so much of my old girl Apple :wub:

@  katelit : (15 April 2014 - 02:41 PM) Hmm, okay, scruffing worth a try :) Thanks.
@  LexZaiya : (13 April 2014 - 11:20 AM) Alice already hates socks...I would hate to see what would happen if I shoved her into a sock. It however, if an excellent idea! I will remember it. Thanks AdvancingStar!
@  AdvancingStar : (11 April 2014 - 11:21 AM) If they really are being difficult, and if you are very careful and gentle you can scruff him to feed him meds if he is being very difficult. Or you can cut a hole in a sock and shove him in there, but I find scruffing is quick and not traumatic if you do it properly.
@  LexZaiya : (11 April 2014 - 10:26 AM) I had trouble giving Alice her last meds Katelit. Hope that he is well.
@  katelit : (10 April 2014 - 12:58 PM) My naughty little boy refused to finish his medicine porridge this morning. He is very fussy - can taste the medicine. I waited an hour - fed them late. No luck. And it is impossible to force feed him the medicine. Grrr. So mommy is not chuffed with Tyrion!
@  AdvancingStar : (08 April 2014 - 10:00 AM) My boys are so cute ^_^ I love being off sick. My boys get to spend the whole day out th cage then.
@  Tails : (07 April 2014 - 05:30 PM) I'm off to Copenhagen tomorrow, will be checking forums in evening when possible :)

@  AdvancingStar : (07 April 2014 - 11:49 AM) The biggest problem with Mumble and Phantom being so friendly is everytime I try and open the cage to take photos they come to the door!!!
@  zelabelle : (06 April 2014 - 09:07 PM) Cool, LexZaiya :star: Welcome!
@  LexZaiya : (06 April 2014 - 04:18 PM) Hi guys. So I'm new and yeah. Just want to say I am enjoying the good vibe I get from the groups.
@  Caryn : (04 April 2014 - 08:57 AM) Happy Happy! :grouphug:
@  Tails : (04 April 2014 - 08:46 AM) HAPPY WORLD RAT DAY!
@  ladypandora : (03 April 2014 - 12:48 PM) I have to finish all my outstanding orders first, then I can rest. Okay with rest I mean clean cages. HAha
@  zelabelle : (03 April 2014 - 10:41 AM) Oh man! LadyP, that's rough! Hope you get the weekend to recover! Don't schedule too much over the weekend...
@  ladypandora : (03 April 2014 - 08:59 AM) Eish I really need some sleep. 20 hour workday, 15 hour workday and another 15 hour workday to follow. Sigh
@  zelabelle : (03 April 2014 - 08:49 AM) It's 8h50 and I'm still in bed perusing the forums... Whoops!
