Re: Changing rat's name?

The only rats that have come to me complete with names were Roly, Miles, Charlie & Felix. Of those, Miles name was orig. 'Mel', which i hated with a passion. Miles was suggested by mum, & it stuck :) The others just suited their names, & knew their names, so they stuck. Then there was a pair, roughl...

Re: GMR.... What about GMC??

Our attic is filling up nicely with spare/old cages, much to my dads annoyance ( :lol: ) Currently theres an old gerbil tank, a zoozone with a wire cage attached to the top (it came with a rat i got off my sisters mate, & is therefore referred to as 'Rolys cage'), a spare zoozone base (the top broke...

Re: Wash bag for hammocks?

Just ordered a small one. Perhaps should've got a large size, but i think this'll do me fine just for hammocks - i only have an explorer with 3 boys, & because i dont have many hammocks or that, its not like i leave stuff to mount up :)

Re: Massive facial lump!

Its all down to the owner, you know him best of course. As long as he is happy, thats the main thing. Watch him closely though, especially in terms of eating. Its completely your call, and I'm so sorry you are going through this, it is heartbreaking. Scritches to Miles :hearts: hugs to you x Thanks...

Re: Massive facial lump!

Personally, and this is just my experience and opinion so please dont take this the wrong way at all! When their teeth are out of alignment, thats when I decide to PTS. For me, thats when ZGT starts to affect their quality of life. I'm sorry about your little man, glad he is still perky though x It...
