Hey Ratanoogians! Don't forget, the chatbox is only for casual chat. Please post actual questions in the relevant section in the forums. :)
@  Caryn : (20 July 2017 - 09:01 AM) There are some updates. I see the forum banner isn't working either, so assume Tails hasn't received the update email. Looks like we can't use it for 3rd party IMG pic posting anymore. Not sure if existing images used on the forums will be restricted or only future posts. Will have to find another file host site :(
@  DiscoMoose : (19 July 2017 - 10:14 AM) hey Lolly, not that I know of . . .
@  lollyh : (17 July 2017 - 03:07 PM) Hey all.just received an email about photobucket & upgrading your account.anyone else receive this email?.:unsure:
@  Rattieroos : (16 July 2017 - 11:17 AM) Hey all, so we can never learn enough... I still don't know why some of my rats chew paper?? They actually eat it. Does anyone know why? :bigeyerat:
@  Rattieroos : (15 July 2017 - 07:15 PM) Thanks Caryn and Lolly, I'm assuming it's mammary, don't know for sure yet. My vet is on leave :( only back on the 24th! I'll see if we can wait but if it grows by next week I'll have to take her to the other vet.
@  lollyh : (14 July 2017 - 10:44 AM) oh no roos. :ratsad: that's awful.i am so sorry. *hugs* .7 months is young.
@  Caryn : (14 July 2017 - 07:13 AM) Ah no, that's terrible. Had one girl, Apple, who also got her first one really young. Didn't have a vet back then who could spay either. Sending :goodvibes:
@  Rattieroos : (13 July 2017 - 11:18 PM) I found a lump on Peaches late this afternoon :ratsad: I think it might be a mammary tumor based on positioning :( She's only about 7 months now. It was such a shock! :ratsad:
@  Caryn : (12 July 2017 - 01:46 PM) Sorry, Tails is the one who organises the Christmas in July. I don't get involved with that unfortunately. Hopefully she will still run it like usual this year :bigeyerat:
@  lollyh : (12 July 2017 - 12:53 PM) awww no roos & amber.i am sorry to hear this. :ratsad: but i understand *hugs* .maybe caryn or tails can do a post & see who is able to partake or not. :) my finances are also tight.
@  Amber : (12 July 2017 - 12:00 PM) I'm so sorry Lolly but I can't afford to be part of Christmas in July either :ratsad:
@  Rattieroos : (11 July 2017 - 09:40 PM) Seriously no money for Christmas in July :ratsad:
@  Rattieroos : (11 July 2017 - 09:39 PM) Thanks Loll :D
@  lollyh : (11 July 2017 - 03:09 PM) Soo its JUly fellow noogans,are we still gonna have xmas in july?. :wub: :wub:
@  lollyh : (09 July 2017 - 10:41 PM) shoo roos,that is awsome news with emo, :clap: .hope he continues that way. *hugs*
@  Rattieroos : (09 July 2017 - 07:16 PM) :D
@  DiscoMoose : (09 July 2017 - 07:08 PM) That's so awesome about Emo! Well done Emo!! You go boy!
@  Rattieroos : (09 July 2017 - 12:47 PM) Correction ~ his IS a black Berkie. Not was :ratno: He's just so rusted now that he's not so black anymore.
@  Rattieroos : (09 July 2017 - 12:44 PM) Had my mischief of 5 boys running around on the bed with me just now.. still too sore to do much... anyway... I was just thinking and wanted to share...... My grandpa Emo is almost 2 yrs and 4months and he's never needed a vet!!!!! That is soooo awesome, he was a black Berkie from a home litter and we never even knew who his father was. :yogiedance: :tummykiss: :Kiss: my precious children. Love them all sooooo much. Just thought I'd share :D :P
@  Rattieroos : (09 July 2017 - 12:43 AM) Thanks Moose, I just looked now and her neck ones have completely cleared and the hair has grown back. :yay: and that was without using the regal. She still has a few smaller ones that she scratches open but I left her for a few days in the bigger cage to settle with Duff and was so chuffed when I saw her neck now :D

Hey guys!  Posting this on behalf of a friend at the Kloof Durban SPCA in KZN:

 

 

PEWGIRLSpcaDbnHoming.jpg

 

This little pew girl is in desperate need of a home. She is approximately 4mths old, so still a baby and looking to join a mischief of girls or neutered boys. Currently at the Durban Kloof SPCA. All her brothers and sisters have found forever homes except her and her situation is getting a bit urgent now :ratsad:
 
If anyone can assist, maybe even with a foster home so she can have friends while she waits for her forever human, then please contact Brigitte on 060 922 1735 or marketing@kloofspca.co.za
 
And if you're in other provinces and have fallen in love at first sight then please give me a shout and I can speak to Brigitte about options and organising her out on a flight to you :)

That's fantastic news!! :clap: :yay: Thank you so much for helping this little one out :)

 

PS:  Not sure who does the spaying there but make sure they send you home with antibiotics and pain medication for at least 5 days!  My girls are always super sore the first couple of days after and if they are in pain they are more likely to pull open and chew at the incision.

:thanx:    :ggmr:

 

Little baby Luna is safe and sound in her new home.  She is currently snoozing in her cube in her cage next to me at my desk.  She spent some time on my bed with me earlier so that we could get to know each other a bit.  She is so lovely and friendly and sweet.  Such a little fighter!  She seems absolutely unfazed by the huge stitch patch on her tummy.  Poor little baby.  She is so strong, energetic and brave!  She startled exploring all over very confidently so quickly!  Lots of little plays and cuddles with me :)  yay for bonding  :loveyoueyes:   Heart stolen already!   She really enjoyed the physical affection with me so I think she must have been very lonely.  Especially spending the last few days at at the SPCA.  They really cared for her though and were kind which I am so glad about.

 

She smelled my ratties all over day bed in the lounge and her hair started to get all puffed up so I thought I better take her to my actual bed where my babies hardly ever go for a more neutral area.  That worked much better.  I now have her smell all over me and I am not changing my clothes before I play with Nibbler and Mama.  Then they can smell her all over me and know that she is a friend.

 

I am so glad that I could give her a loving home.  I will let you all know how it goes with intros and hopefully will be posting pics of my three girls cuddling sooon.

Such great news! :D  I hope the intros go smoothly.  She's been alone for awhile now, so things may need to go a bit slower.  But I'm sure she'll be happy in her new home and with her new sisters soon :)
