Time Starts Its March

Today, as I was going through our morning ritual of breakfast for our little ones I noticed Number 9 laying rather conspicuously staring at the extra daily plate of baby food he has been sharing with WiiOne and Number 8.

I generally start with the triple Ferret Nation and work my way across the room placing the breakfast plates or bowls into each home.  When I reached the last Ferret Nation where the Numbers and Wii live I took a closer look at Number 9.

To my dismay, he passed sometime overnight.  I found Number 9 laying there, looking quite comfortable in what could only be described as a very relaxed almost stretched-out position; just like he had laid down to rest after some playtime with his brothers.

Mrs.R and myself have been readying ourselves in preparation for the next year or so as most of our boys and girls are now over two years old. It would seem Number 9, always the last to go home, will be the one waiting to greet his brothers and sisters as they follow him across the Rainbow Bridge.  As he made sure they were safely home ahead of him in life, he can now make sure they can safely cross when it is their time.

Spaghetti Dinner

Here is the update to the new living arrangements: besides a very sad WiiOne (who was moved back to his old home at the end) everything seems to be going well.

Mrs.R and I had spaghetti for dinner tonight and as our usual we shared with all the rats. It is one of their favorite treats. We made sure the new boys got a bowl just for them while Bruiser made sure they knew what to do with these long wiggly strings of goodness.

The Christmas boys have not had spaghetti before and apparently they enjoy it as much as the other boys do.

Now, as I look around the room at the boys homes, I see a bunch of pasta induced sleepy rats; and, a small rat pile in the back made up of the newest boys and Mr. Bruiser.

All is good in the Rattitude rat homes.

New Living Arrangements

Today is our usual cleaning day. I’ve just finished the boys habitats and I am now sitting in their room keeping an eye and ear on them.

Today we moved WiiOne in with Dash; they get along fine normally and Dash needed the company. Wii is also much bigger than Dash so if there is any funny business from Dash, WiiOne should be able to settle him down.

We also moved the Christmas boys in with the lower two-thirds of the triple Ferret Nation to live with the boys that were living there. Also re-opening the ramp as the “older” boys still with us are doing very well.

It’s a lot more work when adding new rats in with resident rats. Besides having to do an even more thorough cleaning than usual I had to come up with some new ideas for rat furniture layouts.

So far so good. All the new arrangements seem to be working out well.
