get well soon rat
also take said rat to the vets, it could just be oedema or something
she's asleep on my shoulder.
what makes you think that? i hope you're wrong anyway, take him to the vets and get him checked out.
poor rat :(
...someone made a joke of this genre before I shamed myself.
Sorry about your rat Moousee. Heard they are nice, intelligent pets but don't think my wife would like them.
But they ARE the best.
...but then she did like the two wee grey/black gerbals we used to have. They had tails.
I dunno. I want a dog. Or a baby. Can't afford either. I blame the Tories.
they are my friends!!!
You're a bad, funny man./
Spare a thought for my cat, man.
Sorry to hear that man. We had mice until fairly recently - didn't think I'd really care about them at all but they're brilliant pets and I was properly sad when they died. One of them used to sit on my shoulder and hide in my pocket (this is NOT pocketmouse).
then her landlord said "NO" to them, so I had to look after them from them being babies. I thought that I wouldn't get attached, and pretend to not be, but then when she goes out, I'm all over them, tickling their bellies and that. STUPID ATTATCHMENT TO ANIMALS
Are you people all in the Addams Family or something
"Vermin (in some dialect regions, varmint or varmit) is a term applied to various animal species regarded by some as pests or nuisances and especially to those associated with the carrying of disease. Since the term is defined in relation to human activities, which species are included will vary from area to area and even person to person." Certainly, living in my house, with my full blessing, my rats are not vermin.
It doesn't seem to make any sense.
Hopefully she will continue regardless, and you'#ll have lots more lovely times together before her time comes. (My black pug has had cancer for over a year now and <touchwood> there's still a fair bit of life left in the old girl. if anything, it makes you appreciate your pet that bit more.) Spoil her and cuddle her and keep your chin up moousee xxx
take it to the vets see if its in pain. It if was, i'd get it put down....sorry but its not fair on the poor little rat.
Then the vet said it might be cancer and to keep an eye on her. I feel like I should be taking her to Disneyworld or somewhere.
what do rats like? those little nuts stuck to a stick?
Also pringles. She likes to sleep in the middle of the bed whilst listening to mogwai as well.
