I'm with Helzie on this one. It all sounds horrible and there is no way that I would try any of it, even for the advancement of science. Ewwwwww :sickrat:

I'm pretty sure we're not good arbeiters of what tastes good to a rat. I decided this...

*Helzie (and all squeamish people), I guarantee you want to skip the rest of this post*

... on the day the vet pulled a scab off Glurk's neutering abcess, complete with large pea-sized lump of pus...

*yes, this is going where you think it's going. I said you wanted to skip it...*

... dropped it on the examining table, put Glurk down whilst he got some tweezers to poke the wound...

*you'll find the sick rat smiley is on far right hand of the third row btw*

... and turned round to find Glurk nomming up his pus laiden treat with great enthusiasm

Even the vet turned a bit green :lol: .

Anyway, this decided me that whilst we may all be omnivores, and have weaknesses for sugar and fat, what a rat considers good eating is not something I can ever understand...

Which means I'm excused trying anything horrible :P

I was given fair warning. I appreciate that and absolve Alison of all responsibility for the fact that despite being given due notice, I ignored the warning and recklessly read this when eating my breakfast.


I may never eat again.

Senior aid - smells awful, tastes worse.
Synulox liquid- kinda sickly sweet like sugared milk

Bananna custard baby food - Nom
Farleys Rusks - Nom
Dr Squiggles - just weird tasting water, didnt see the appeal
Bisolvin - Bleck
Yoggies - drab and chalky tasted of nothing much
