Re: Hatred of plasters!?

Lol mine don't hate them, they love them... Chewing on them, trying to pull them off, biting them.... I have indeed had more bitten fingers due to plaster wearing than pretty much anything else

Re: What am I?

Thanks lovely people :)

So what I have is a beautiful Agouti Berkshire boy :D he's a cheeky little character with a strong personality and almost 16 weeks old now (if him being 13 weeks when I got him is accurate)
I'm his third forever home so he literally has been passed like a parcel up till now.

Re: What am I?

Looking at the pics and descriptions it does sound more like he's berkie than Essex as his tummy is very defined White markings rather than faded... Still stuck on his colour though... Your boy is gorgeous! Here's smudge from the other side: http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b98/amai_diamond/c0d0b24...

Re: New rats. Advice needed on health etc etc

Firstly, well done you for taking them on - it does indeed sound like they were not in the best of homes if dog bics and pizza was their diet! I wouldn't worry about bathing them for now, it can stress them out and being a little grubby won't damage them for a couple of days, instead focus on gainin...

Re: I honestly don't know whats wrong with my boy.

I'm s sorry for your loss. If a little one has passed on my lap or away from the group - I tend to gently lay them in the cage for 30 mins or so with the others, so they can have a sniff and understand. Ive never had anything bad happen from that
