Yeah, it’s that time of the year. Or so I think. Since I got my cuties from the petstore, there is no saying when they were actually born. If they came from a good breeder, they were about 7-8 weeks old when I got them. if they came from a breeder who also breeds rats for snake-food, they could have easily been 4,5 -5 weeks old.
I am guessing Ruma was probably 4-5 weeks old when I got her, since she was SO small. Only 72 grams, which is officially 30 grams too light to be taken away from the nest.
And even Koko probably wasn’t the full 8 weeks, as she weighed 92 grams, also underweight.
(I have to say, looking at these pics makes me want rittens again, but that’s beside the point)
I got Koko on February 2nd and Ruma a week later on February 9th. So taking the 8 weeks into count, I decided their birthdays should be around Christmas. Thus, on december 26th (2nd day of Christmas over here in the Netherlands), I made them a birthdaycake and tried to love them juuuuuust a little bit more than usual ;). The cake was highly appreciated, Koko was schlepping pieces of avocado around in no time, and the whole thing was eaten within 6 hrs, but besides that, they weren’t more festive than other days. Nor was I as I was so tired of working the days before Christmas. But yeah, my ladies have turned one now! Yay! And here’s how they celebrated:
Look at Koko focusing solely on the food and Ruma noticing the camera. I only managed to snap one pic with the both of them, after that Ruma took off into my sweater 😉
Well, let’s go for another year! ❤
