Hey Ratanoogians! Don't forget, the chatbox is only for casual chat. Please post actual questions in the relevant section in the forums. :)
@  Caryn : (02 December 2016 - 10:31 PM) Ah, what a pity! Well there'll still be pretty pics to enjoy :) Just waiting for Tails to forward me the entries and I'll post up voting! :clap:
@  Rattieroos : (02 December 2016 - 10:05 PM) Cool Caryn, I just bought a calendar today because Jamie was quite insistent and I didn't think we'd have one this year. I'll enjoy seeing the pics and voting though :) :ratyes:
@  Rattieroos : (02 December 2016 - 10:04 PM) No worries Lolly of course I know the feeling. And Moose I'm sure the meds caused that kind of reaction in the beginning considering the amounts he had to have. So glad they're all friends now :tummykiss: to the boys :)
@  Caryn : (02 December 2016 - 06:43 PM) **UPDATE ON CALENDAR** We're going to try and make the calendars still happen this year :clap: More info and voting will hopefully be up shortly. But everything will be moving super fast to meet deadlines for printing. So please keep an eye out for posts and reply asap!! :D
@  DiscoMoose : (02 December 2016 - 04:22 PM) i love how my boys are making the cutest little rattie-piles all the time... SO HAPPY that they're all friends now :wub:
@  DiscoMoose : (02 December 2016 - 12:36 PM) Aw Lolly that is a truly heartwrenching feeling. Nikki I have had my fair share of rattie super-stink lately what with all Bollie's meds. Seems to have calmed down a bit now thankfully...
@  lollyh : (02 December 2016 - 05:44 AM) Giglgle.sorry Roosie about the stinky smell.sorry I didn't answer sooner roo.just been so concern & preoccupied with me 2oldies.trying to get them to nibble on anything right now.

@  Rattieroos : (02 December 2016 - 12:20 AM) Sorry to hear Lolly :( let us know how they are.
@  DiscoMoose : (01 December 2016 - 02:22 PM) :ratsad: many hugs Lolly
@  lollyh : (01 December 2016 - 02:06 PM) & I found a small lump on nougat.sigh. :ratsadlook:
@  lollyh : (01 December 2016 - 11:11 AM) Thanks just wasn't their day yesterday.honey took a tumble i think last night or decided to jump :bigeyerat: ,found her on top of rascal,nougs & winstons cage.poop where she landed everywhere..sigh!! :ratsad: taking her & rue to dr tina tomorrow at 10am.
@  Rattieroos : (01 December 2016 - 10:54 AM) That feeling when one of your rats has made a real whopper of a stinky poo and you sit there breathing it in because you haven't the energy to go see and clean it. Nor the inclination :puke:
@  Rattieroos : (01 December 2016 - 10:39 AM) Awww no, sorry to hear Lolly :( maybe she'll perk up for a little snack/party later *hugs*
@  Caryn : (01 December 2016 - 07:45 AM) :ratsad: Hope she feels better about celebrating today
@  DiscoMoose : (01 December 2016 - 07:12 AM) Aw Lolly. It feels so sad when that happens.
@  lollyh : (30 November 2016 - 11:04 PM) Thank you Roos,caryn & moosie. *hugs* sadly the birthday girl was not interested in food or party tonight. :ratsadlook: she just laid in her cube.will try again tomorrow.
