I have to shamefully admit that lately my time has been swallowed up by something that has everything to do with my rats, but absolutely nothing with blogging. I found a rat-forum that I am absolutely addicted to. Every 2 minutes I click it and refresh to see if there are new messages, it’s pathetic, even by my own standards ;).
There are SO many adorable pictures, amazing ideas for toys and decorations, tips, funny stories, sad stories, secondhand accessories, and you-name-it that is keeping me absolutely mesmerized :). I could share the link here but I wonder how many of you can read Dutch and understand :).
This week has been not very eventful at all. The ladies have been eating, sleeping and pooping as usual. I have been busy working mostly, so we didn’t really have any adventures, until this morning. All seemed well as the ladies were roaming free, until Ruma came passing by with a big red blooddrop on her ear. Good mommy as I am, I only panicked on the inside and very calmly wiped the blood off her ear. Just a few minutes before they had been playing a bit rough under the blankets with me so I figured that would have been the cause. Ruma herself didn’t seem very bothered with it, she was just her busy, adventurous, mischievous self and kept licking me as if I were the best treat ever. I realized this is actually the first time one of the ladies bled since I got them in February. How lucky am I!
I have been reading many a horror story about injuries and healthproblems on the forum, so I am happy I’ve only had to deal with this so far. I’m keeping a close eye on her ear to make sure it doesn’t get infected (reminds me of poor Casper!) and besides that I am giving her just a little bit more love than usual. Will keep you updated on the state of her ear.
