Got the dig box connected to the rat cage again.

It's their little on suite garden.

Sneaking this #Raturday post in under the wire…

Here are Angelica’s sixteen (!!!) babies, mere seconds before mama rat whisked them away from prying human eyes.


A big wad of baby rats: gray, white, black. They are lying on wadding and fabric scraps.

And my little #Figs :blobratheart: ❀️

The boss of the cage is gone now that Frankie is no more.

The remaining three rats are all still young, so I removed all the ramps I'd put in for ageing chaos potatoes.

Saffy and Jasper took this in stride, scrambling up to their highest hideaways with no problem, but Nicodemus, the biggest boy, is having to be a bit more strategic.

There's been some slightly desperate, pop-eyed peddling of little feet as he slowly but inevitably slides back down the bars and plops back on the floor.

He does manage it in the end, it just takes him a bit longer.

I'm hoping he'll get stronger again as he's forced to get a bit more exercise.

This is me in pajamas, bottle-feeding Oreo. We’re guessing she’s probably 15 days old or so. #RatsOfMastodon

A tiny dark-brown-and-white baby rat pokes its head out of the shirt of a man’s blue plaid pajamas, in order to drink from a very small bottle of milk he is holding.

A video showing moanos with a white rat on his shoulder. The rat frantically licks his fingers. When he moves them away the rat stands on two legs and sniffs the head and seems to lovingly bite the ear of moanos. The hand returns and the licking continues. In the end the rat pepper slides down to moanos hand and looks into the camera

This is Frankie. She's nearly 3 years old, and she's no longer as strong as she used to be, but here she is in one of the highest boxes in the cage and she climbed up there by herself.

She's the boss of the cage. She showed all the newcomers where they have to poop when they first arrived, and when any of them step out of line she pins them down and grooms them from nose to tail.

Whenever I mess up the cage ("clean" it) , she's the one who sets it to rights again.

When she was a baby she used to go to sleep in my sleeve, apparently unperturbed by my moving my hand around to move the mouse.

She's not a cuddly girl, she's a bit like some cats are. Self possessed. Independent.

Finally an ethical use for little plastic fishbowls!

I twisted two separate loops of wire around the rim and attached them to the ceiling bars, then afterwards added additional wires that go under the bowl and hold it into the corner. It needs a wall-ceiling corner to help it stay still.

#rat #rats #ratsOfMastodon

A small plastic fishbowl is hanging in a rat cage, held up by long plant tie wires. The opening faces sideways onto a bridge of cardboard tubes so rats can get in and out easily. Two rats are inside, filling the whole space inside the bowl. The black rat looks out through the clear plastic like he knows he's in a picture. The white rat is looking straight upwards with just his mouth and nose visible like a silly muppet.
The same two rats in the same fishbowl. Benny the white rat stretches out lazily and peeks his face out. Casper the black rat is squished into the back but doesn't seem to mind.

My old guy rat Maurice is still alive. Just about! Sleeping 90% of the time.
He has to be washed every day otherwise he ends up being covered in pee, but he seems to enjoy his bath.

He relaxes in the water, bruxing a little - that's how rats purr, they grind their teeth πŸ™‚ Afterwards I wrap him in a towel and he gets a tiny piece of chocolate and eats it lying in front of the heater. (Chocolate is safe for rats).

The other rats look after him too, grooming him and snuggling with him, but also very quick to steal his food so !
