Success!!!

Post by RattyRenton » Thu Jun 23, 2011 10:53 pm

For those familiar with my intro woes. I never thought I'd be able to say this but after all his huffing and puffing and general nastiness to the others Archie's now part of the gang! It's taken me months but after a night spent in the little cage with them all I think he's finally realised that they're not going to kill him and he's learning how to be a rat again. They're in the bottom half of the Explorer at the mo with 2 hammocks and a shelf, not a single scuffle. I'll add more accessories tomorrow. He keeps bouncing round the cage bless him, he doesn't know what to do with himself :hearts: . I can't describe how made up I am that he's finally a part of the group after being on his own for so long, he seems completely settled and is happy to cuddle up to the others, and even steal their food! I'm a very happy girlie with a very happy ratty!

Thanks everyone. However we've had a set back, Archie had a nasty fight with Charley and Archie came off worse, he has a few injuries, although Charley seems more upset. If they meet they're treading on eggshells around each other. I've confined them to half of the Explorer again. I really thought he'd been completely accepted :(
