I don't know what to tell you Lolly *hugs* You love her so much and all you want is the best for her. I believe she knows that too... no matter what you decde. She's really done well in the age department :tummykiss:
@  lollyh : (06 September 2017 - 03:09 PM) thank you moosie.it is bittersweet.her hld has gotten worse.she drags her 1 leg underneath her now. :ratsad: but she is eating-every meal she is in that bowl. (5 table spoons of oats this morning :loveyoueyes: ).was so proud of her,she doesn't like drinking but when i put water droplet in my hand,she will drinkl.pooping & weeing is normal.she takes a stroll right down our passage,around my bathroom & still climbs in & out of her bed.for a 3yr old rattie.i'm just wondering...is she doing ok or i just don't know.. am i being cruel. :unsure:
@  DiscoMoose : (02 September 2017 - 09:11 AM) aw Lolly - so bittersweet... enjoy each other <3 sweetie Nougies.
@  lollyh : (02 September 2017 - 12:41 AM) Spent a long time with my nougies & me time tonight. :wub: :wub: .she is so frail at times others she seems ok,just old but i can see her deterioration& eating alittle less but i am enjoying her snuggles & licks. :Kiss:
@  Caryn : (01 September 2017 - 07:08 AM) That's great :D
@  Rattieroos : (01 September 2017 - 12:29 AM) My other oldie is Thunder who was 2 years in May :D so proud of my boys!!
@  Rattieroos : (01 September 2017 - 12:28 AM) Grandpa Roo gave me a scare when he hardly moved out of his cube for a couple of days but he's back to eating hard food again and toddling around albeit on hobbled back legs. He's using his whole cage again with Nibbs and has good appetite after eating off my finger for a few days :D I'm so happy Roo is doing so well. He's the last of the 5 beeeg boys from Angeleen that I had taken in from previous owner. Hope he stays for a while yet and sees his 3rd birthday in October.
@  DiscoMoose : (28 August 2017 - 03:45 PM) hey Lora, I think the 'wanted' section of the 'rat stuff' classifieds?
@  lorajbk : (28 August 2017 - 03:28 PM) don't know which thread I should post on?
@  lorajbk : (28 August 2017 - 03:27 PM) Hi eveyone, looking for someone to look after my rats in Cape Town - preferably Southern Suburbs.
@  Tails : (18 August 2017 - 12:16 PM) Hi Caryn, thanks so much for that. I must also update the banners and such to the new hosting. Will get to it this weekend xx

Hi.

I have been visiting this website every now and then for ages trying to decide if I should adopt little ratties. I now have two little furry friends, both girls. Many years ago two boys were part of my family. In December a friend's rat had babies as they had a boy and girl unknowingly and, of course, baby rats! So now a mama (Mama aka Attack Rat) and her daughter (Nibbler aka Nibblet aka Nibblestein) bring smiles to my home.

I'm looking forward to meeting you all here on the interwebs.

K bye

If you've been visiting awhile you've probably already seen all of this, but anyway...

Please check out the forum rules (we only have a few) or the The How-To's here if you need any help   :)

And if you haven't already seen it, there is a free Rat Care Guide available for download here:

PS: Deleted your duplicate post.  Apologies for that! Forums have had an issue awhile, it gives an error when you try post and it actually goes through.  So just refresh the page and it'll be there! lol
