Rats love ice cream!!!
« on: April 10, 2003, 06:39:22 PM »
I let the girls have a bit of vanilla ice cream off a spoon a little while ago... talk about ratties going into hyperactive overdrive!!! They were attacking the spoon, pushing each other, getting it all over their faces and paws, Ginia was hanging by one paw and her tail from the side of the cage to get at it!  :yelcutelaugh: I made sure they all got some, of course, and now they're busy licking it off each other. I wish I'd had my camera handy, it was so cute!!!  :BlueDumboSmile:

So what's the funniest thing to watch your rats eat?

(although they like to sleep in the bag of cookies when it's empy, lazily licking the sides. "awww... paradise...   :rattysmiley: "

my boys absolutley LOVE ice cream.  i usually buy a pint of ben and jerry's and eat it directly out of the carton (i'm one of those people!).  if the boys are running around when i'm eating ice cream, they'll come running... hoping to get some (which they always do).

Well, around here the funniest food just happens to be ice cream.  I love it when they try to grab a hunk of it and hold it, only it's too cold, so they drop it, but they don't want another rat to steal it, so they pick it up again.  Only, it's too cold, so they drop it, but they don't want another rat to steal it, so they pick it up again...  LOL!

Same here!  All I have to do is say "Ice Cream" loudly and zoom they're here!  

Just an FYI, if anyone's rattie is on Doxycycline or Tetracycline, I believe dairy products are to be avoided..best to check with your vet.

Perhaps a nice sorbet to cleanse the delicate rattie palate? (Big hit here as well).

The minute I saw this thread I just had to start laughing.  Check out our two boys, Juvenal and Martial - rats of the week!

(And no, we didn't actually give them the whole pint... just let them lick the carton once we were done....)

Mine love fresh corn.  It's so cute watching Jair stuff his mouth, going to a corner and popping out 7 pieces of corn!

i cant even go to mc d's anymore for icecream with my girls in the car. ( they are "free range" in my car as long as they stick to somewhere i can reach. safely)  they just smell it and all of a sudden i have three rats clambering for the hand holding the vanilla cone. back and forth. (not much help either with a manual car).  then i have to lock them in their carry case and its all BANG BANG BANG... SNIF SNIF SIIIIFFFFFF... SCRATCH BANG SCRATCH.
