!! Thank God it's not just me with this problem!!! Going into the rat room and giving Percy cuddles in my pj's is NOT an option. No bra = sore nipple lol. She's obsessed, and she aims impressively well too!

I love it when you give your rats a boring nom and they just chuck it on the floor and then stare at you waiting for something tasty
... when one of the cats walks past the boys cage and Stilton starts huffing and spitting at them
... when you give rats something nasty (like Baytril) and they rub their face on the floor afterwards
... when they insist on sitting on your head!
... when Bramble screams at the others because she's eating something yummy and they dared to look at it

!!! it's not just Zazie who is OBSESSED??? i thought, for everyone else it's kind of a little accident and i was wondering *what was wrong* with mine! she really GOES FOR it too, when i play with them in my night gown, i see her eyes glow brighter and STARE while she tries to reach higher, i know she's only thinking of one thing "this time i'll take it back home!!" :x and in her case it's not just a sore, usually blood involved. :cry:


...i love it when i wave my home-made cookie around the sleepy rat noses, they suddenly switch to 3x fast-forward motion, snatch and run, then they are like, cross-eyed while they munch away... :lol:

I just had a special moment with Charlie, he's very skittish, hates cuddles but just now he climbed my leg onto my lap, licked my hands, had a good sniff of me and jumped off. In the 15 months I've had him he's never licked me :love:

:lol: That's excellent!!

I love it when Layla thinks she's a squirrell and tries to stuff as many peas as possible (or impossible) into her mouth at once before running off with them :)
...when the girls are hiding in their fabric tunnel and I start poking them through the material, only to feel little paws desperately trying to snatch me from the inside!
...when I give them a bowl of soy milk or some other liquid treat and they start swiping their paws through it, wondering if there are peas hidden somewhere :-o

I love it when Charlie and Emilio get obsessed with the curtains. Opening them....and closing them....and opening them....and closing them... (or as close as they can get to it!) :lol:

Oh Rascal and Wallace do this particularly well, Rocky on the other hand hasn't and went to dive at her, through the bars of the cage, I think he hurt his nose because he then sat there rubbing it for ages. Bless.

I love it when I see a hard boiled egg rolling down a ladder and a rat frantically chasing after it.

Awwwww :love:

I love it when....

I freak Clawson out by touching him too much with my hand and he gets hold of me gently with his teeth in order to move my hand away :hearts:
Stilton falls over himself (literally!) trying to grab a baby wipe I'm waving on the other side of the cage

I love it when they try to climb inside your ear :D

I also love when they get peas and they try to stuff as many in their mouth as possible before anyone else can get them :lol:
