Hey Ratanoogians! Don't forget, the chatbox is only for casual chat. Please post actual questions in the relevant section in the forums. :)
@  Mavdb : (19 April 2015 - 09:37 PM) Oh dear, yes if they are worrying the rats then I'd try get rid of them :(
@  robynlyn : (19 April 2015 - 04:49 PM) they are red ants and some were even bite right into my boys... so i have to get rid of them... cinnamon seems to be working ...allot less around.
@  Mavdb : (19 April 2015 - 10:20 AM) Our rat room gets ants this time of year, our boys don't seem bothered so I leave them, they're just preparing for winter. We did get a dish that deters the ants (has a edge lip that can be filled with water so the ants cant cross), this helps keep them out of the dry food dish.
@  robynlyn : (19 April 2015 - 09:01 AM) My rat room has ants..... Arg. I'll try cinnamon. As someone said it's safe......
@  Rattieroos : (18 April 2015 - 09:46 PM) AdvancingStar I keep forgetting the bloody name of your rattery. Got it now :)
@  AdvancingStar : (18 April 2015 - 02:52 PM) New photos of Edelweiss' kits on facebook.
@  Rattieroos : (15 April 2015 - 10:48 PM) Thanks Rob you too :D
@  robynlyn : (15 April 2015 - 09:02 PM) Yes enjoy
@  Rattieroos : (15 April 2015 - 05:44 PM) Sorry couldn't resist. Jamie should have started on Tues this week but because we're away for JP's work and she's in a special class they're quite lax. So she goes back Monday :)
@  Rattieroos : (15 April 2015 - 05:43 PM) Four days left till school again :yay:
@  robynlyn : (15 April 2015 - 05:36 PM) Two days left of school..... :yay:
@  CindyR : (15 April 2015 - 03:03 PM) My boss is away for two weeks :yay: :boogie: :boogie:
@  Rattieroos : (14 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) lol glad he's a bit better :)
@  robynlyn : (13 April 2015 - 10:37 PM) Ha ha yes think he took it way to seriously.... Ha ha. But better not 100% but he took a walk around room and got his treat...
@  Rattieroos : (13 April 2015 - 06:34 PM) How's your boy Rob? It could have been because he's always been used to the coverings, but if from babies they get so used to it. Some of my cages have coverings like Jerry as he has such sensitive skin, the others have a bit of a mixture. Hope Sammy is ok and took my advice about 'rice' :ratgiggle:
@  Tails : (13 April 2015 - 01:00 PM) ok thanks
@  Tails : (13 April 2015 - 01:00 PM) :(
@  Mavdb : (13 April 2015 - 12:49 PM) Yes still having issues. This morning I was at work when I was redirected which was dry embarrassing! This is the first time it's happened from my work computer.
@  Tails : (13 April 2015 - 11:37 AM) anyone still experiencing redirects?
@  robynlyn : (12 April 2015 - 10:45 PM) After our posts about covering levels. I left covers off ladders and sammy hurt his foot poor boy.
