what was the strangest thing you`ve found your rat eating?

Post by iwantcookies » Sun Jul 17, 2011 11:43 am

:) I found and had to stop my late rat holly from nibbling a candle :-? then their was this other time i was putting make up on, i had to take my blusher off her :-?.

:) But the funnest story has to be about my nieces rat misfit, she found him nibbling on one of her antidepressant tablets :-o,then another time..she had just bought a nice bar of soap from lush..and she found him nibbling that :o.

A dead Bee, one of our girls found it up the corner of the conservatory and came running into the middle of the rug with her prize, where she sat happily munching away at it :sickrat:
I was horrified :x

Agreed, Blossom loves eating carpet... If I don't hoover the hall properly before letting them have free range, they often find small bits of mud to eat from the mat. Adds a point of interest I guess :lol:

Tate and Lyle (RIP) loved the fake coals in a house I used to live. They used to steal them and hide them behind the sofa. I remember when the gas man came for the annual inspection and he said 'there seems to be a few coals missing and they need to go on in order' so I said 'just a minute' went behind the sofa and grabbed them He looked at me funny....but the best thing is I explained about the rats and he asked to hold them - and wouldn't put them down :lol:

I had a baking tray propped up in my room, covered in foil and Slug rat up to it and went to take a bite :o I thought, he will hate the noise and poop himself and prepared to laugh evilly...but he just took a huge mouthful and ran off with it, I had to prize it off him, he thought it was the best thing in the world and ran back for more O.o

George (RIP) used to jump in the cat's litter tray during free range and er...eat the contents. And I don't mean the litter :sickrat:

Soap seems to be a bit of a rodent fetish object, we found out we had mice living in our house when they decimated my soap-on-a-rope :o

Totally forgot about that, Majeeka likes tampons. When I came home from my holiday last year my case was lying opened on the floor and I didn't unpack straight away. When I did there was fluffy tampons everywhere :lol:
