Glad to hear your two finally made friends! I always laughed that my two minky boys were always together - one American and one English mink, and completely unrelated, but always tucked up in the same hammock. Hope they can sort it out. One of them needs to get over himself so they can go back to be...
They're kicking off again... :angry: Watching them, they're each as bad as each other. Malin is throwing his weight about and Faeroe is following him around and prompting it. My lads have had a few long weekends away with my lovely ratsitting friend- maybe that's unsettled them and they'll settle on...
Well, they've been confined to just one half of the SRS, and will put them in the Critter if there's any more nonsense! Sure enough, they were all snuggled up harmoniously together this morning. There were a few squabbles on free range last night, but really nothing at all serious. *sigh* From what ...
Thanks for your experience. I agree, I really don't want them split up for long, so I'm off home now to put them back in together, where I can watch them. Today would be the day when our landlady makes her annual inspection, and the thought of my quiet, clean, really-nothing-to-object-about-honestly...
We have two older boys of about 2 (Lundy and Malin), and two younger lads who are coming up to 1 (Faeroe and Hebridy), all living fairly harmoniously in an SRS. Until recently there had been little friction, the odd squabble, boys being boys, but nothing serious. Recently, there has been some tensio...
actually, i don't know what hat ears are supposed to look like? :-? are Zazie's? her ears are always positioned like this, as opposes to my Siamese Zima's ears are facing the front and upright. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y22/ayalafillette/IMGP0535.jpg those are a fine example of hat ears! :lol:
Not worrying at all - it's very common in rats who love wheelrunning (hence I've never seen it in any of mine! :-? ) It just means the muscles in her tail that hold it up out of the way are a bit overdeveloped, and that she's got used to holding it out of the way when she runs. Let her enjoy her whe...
Not necessarily- it could be a tumour, but much more likely an abscess (will come to a head and burst) or a sebaceous cyst (ditto), neither of which are terribly serious. It probably isn't serious, but keep an eye on how quickly it grows ( or not) and show it to a vet if you're at all worried.

I often use one of those thick plastic-y tablecloths too - works quite well and wipes clean!Lostgirl08 wrote:What about a party table cloth? X

Baby food is quite high in water, I would imagine - how about bulking it up with some couscous or EMP?

I voted for the green option on the poll, but meaning dark green. There's no way I'd buy lime green. I feel it's a little unfair sticking the two opposites in the same poll option when for other colours dark and light have been seperated :) . This^^^ Dark green, definitely. this sounds exciting! I ...
Yes, it means they are ruby eyed, not black. Ruby can be visibly reddish, or darker so that it looks like black and only shows up under a flash. What varieties are they? It goes with certain colours. I have an American mink and American cinnamon with ruby eyes.
If it's hot weather, I'd think they'd benefit from getting a bit wet- it would help them to cool off. If you're worried, I think hammocky hammocks make covers for them, or you could wrap it in a tea towel.
