Meet Zucchini and Rutabaga!!!
« on: October 12, 2017, 06:53:55 PM »
I got to bring home two adorable little girls for school. I'm going to school to be a vet tech and these girls where used in the lab animal classes. At the end of every term some of the lab animals (rabbits, mice, and rats) go up for adoption. Originally Rutabaga was Ratabaga. I changed her name to Rutabaga, because I like the name more. I also switched their names, because I thought Zucchini fit the smaller girl better.


Zucchini is the girl with a gray head and Rutabaga is the girl with brown.

Wow, they are very cute and love their names. I haven't been on Goosemoose in ages and miss seeing all those cute faces.  I'm going to have to visit more often.

Zucchini gets so talkative when I pick her up. We're working on them being okay with me picking them up. Zucchini will eat the treat I give her, but Rutabaga waits until she is back in the cage to eat her treat.

Someday I want to see if they will eat the veggies they were named after.   :BlueDumboSmile:

Adorabubs!  :heart: Good luck with your studies! I'm laughing because a lot of people don't like rats, so we have a family "safe word" for them such as when we are out eating. And it is "rutabaga." As in, "have you fed the rutabagas yet?"  :yelcutelaugh:
