How strange :blink: I get to the usual full site :/

@  DiscoMoose : (15 May 2018 - 01:36 PM)

Ah... makes sense about the warning page. So glad she found a workaround, so as not to scare of potential new forum peeps... still, if I visit ratanooga.co.za I get only a 'hello' on the page *blush*

@  Caryn : (13 May 2018 - 05:48 PM)

Tails created the alternative forum address to get around that big red warning page, hence the redirection. No idea what's going on in general though, haven't heard from Tails in ages :( The main Ratanooga.co.za website though is still up and running as per normal.

@  DiscoMoose : (11 May 2018 - 03:24 PM)

I was also not so down with the big red virus warning the forum was making (i knew it was safe, but it disturbed my sense of loving things that are orderly) - so i'm happy that's gone. Some other observations: why is the forum redirecting to internot.co.za? what is happening to ratanooga.co.za? the page source over there is just a single 'hello'...? hmm curiouser and curiouser... ;)

Recently lost Dove and Peaches as well. Dove had an ovarian tumor that even the vet was shocked at the size. I let him do a necropsy and he let me stay. Then Peaches had 3 lumps removed but somewhere within the 1st or 2nd day recovery from the surgery, she must have had a stroke or a blood clot :bigeyecry:

Here are some July and August pictures of my three naughty rockets! :D finally! 

People have trouble telling Atom and Boots apart but once you get to know them it is quite easy to spot the differences without having a look at their bellies or back feet. ( Atom has white belly, white feet, a pink-tipped tail and white 'cuffs' on his front arms, while Boots only a small white triangle, a fully brown tail, brown back feet and no white cuffs...) But even their face shapes and general expressions are quite different, although you can see they are brothers. Although their facial differences are not so easy to spot from photos alone, Atom has a much more open face where Boots is always a bit more guarded / reluctant looking. Atom is also the smaller of the two, and I suspect even Tobi might grow to be bigger than he. Boots is visibly more heavyset, although thankfully not fat. He is bigger boned. 

 

Their personalities are also highly contrasted. Atom is cuddly and social, and seeks me out to spend time with me, being stroked or played with. Boots has his playful moments, but prefers to be boisterous with Tobi or skulk / stash food / nest in dark corners.

 

One thing I'm grateful for is that these boys are generally very happy with a healthy diet. They also eat ALL their Snuggarat mix eventually. First boys I've had that actually finish all their dry food without blindly refusing the less choicy bits. 

 

 

August 2017 - Tobi left, Atom on top in the middle and Boots bottom right! They were really sleepy here, although Atom just had to poke his face out to inspect the camera.
