Rat Tails & Mug Shots / Re: Meet Pele My Brave Baby Girl

Pele at 25 months has some health issues but we are ready for the fight now.  We had a lovely cuddly night last night and are all ready to start trying to help some of them.

When its time to go to bed, I often pick up Pele, turn on my side, then put my hand flat on the bed with my fingers curled up.  Pele will often groom, lick me as I rub her with my fingers, but will finally shift so all 4 of her feet are on my hand, settle down and we sleep.  I finally caught this on my cell phone.   :heart:

A bit of grooming to start





An oops pic where I zoomed in somehow one-handed LOL



a bit of rearranging




Then she and I settle in  :heart:  Zzzzzzzz

I'm always worried that odd breathing noises could be a respiratory issue, so I'd bring him to the vet.

Rat Care Corner / Talking In His Sleep?????

So Tobi has picked up a new habit. Occasionally, while he's sleeping, he "talks". It's a higher sound than what Zucchini makes when she's excited. Which is ironic seeing as Zucchini is my smallest rat and Tobi is the biggest. Today I had just gotten home and when I opened the bedroom door I heard the "talking". I was instantly worried, because it sounds like soft squeaking. I thought someone was in pain. Nope. Tobi was just curled up in a hide with Irish. Is this normal or something to worry about?  :help:

Rat Tails & Mug Shots / A sad day for the rat world

Those of you who remember the extremely photogenic rat, Marty Mouse, may know that his mother adopted three almost equally cute brothers a few years ago, after Marty died.  She is a professional photographer and has been documenting their adventures on a Web site called martymousehouse.com.  Wimbley died over a year ago of a pituitary tumor, Milo died earlier this year, and now Fibbs has died suddenly of old age, a couple of months short of his third birthday.  The conceit was that Fibbs ran for President of the United States as the nominee of the Donutcratic Party (slogan:  "Peace, Love, Doughnuts") and has been governing the country since the election.

I don't know why, exactly, but losing each of these boys has been like losing one of my own rats.  They were all adorable.  Each had a strong personality that came through in the photos; Fibbs in particular had a mischievous twinkle in his eyes.  Marty was a very persuasive rat ambassador in his time, and Milo, Wimbley, and Fibbs ably carried on the tradition.  The world is a poorer place without them.
