That's terrible, so very sorry Rattieroos :cry:

@  lollyh : (15 February 2018 - 07:18 AM)

Oh Roos.i am so very sorry about dove & peaches. :bigeyecry: awful to loss 2 ratties so close together & sweet peaches.i know you had such a soft spot for her. :bigeyecry: :ratsad:

@  lollyh : (15 February 2018 - 07:14 AM)

Oh cluna.i am sorry.sweet baggs.how is Baer doing?. *hugs*

@  Rattieroos : (14 February 2018 - 11:42 PM)

Recently lost Dove and Peaches as well. Dove had an ovarian tumor that even the vet was shocked at the size. I let him do a necropsy and he let me stay. Then Peaches had 3 lumps removed but somewhere within the 1st or 2nd day recovery from the surgery, she must have had a stroke or a blood clot :bigeyecry:

@  Rattieroos : (14 February 2018 - 11:38 PM)

So sorry about Baggs Cluna :ratsad:

@  Caryn : (12 February 2018 - 07:43 AM)

I'm so very sorry Cluna :ratsad:

@  Cluna : (09 February 2018 - 12:09 PM)

Thanks Lolly. It would probably be worse for me, but better for her as she loved us so much. She always wanted out of the cage and to be with us. When I found her, she even looked like she was trying to get out the cage. I can only hope that her best friend Bear was there for her at least. Man, we miss her so much. :ratsad:

@  lollyh : (05 February 2018 - 07:43 PM)

Oh cluna.i am so so sorry to hear about baggs. :ratsad: she went the best way.its not easy when they pass in your hands but maybe I've just had to many goodbyes like that.i hope your heartache eases soon.she will always be in your heart. *hugs* .we are all hear from you.

@  Cluna : (05 February 2018 - 12:58 PM)

Hi guys. I haven't been around in a while, and I don't know if you remember me or my ratties, Baggs and Bear. Sadly Baggs (nearly 3) passed on Friday. She was incredibly thin and her breathing was so heavy. Unfortunately, I found her in her cage in the morning and didn't have her die in my hands like I'd wished. She was my heart rat and I am still absolutely devastated. :bigeyecry:

@  Caryn : (19 January 2018 - 06:37 PM)

Thanks. Yeah, she was nearing 2,5yrs and had been on heart meds for CHF for close to 8mths. I got way more time with her than I expected to be honest, but it's never enough time :ratsad:

@  Rattieroos : (18 January 2018 - 09:17 PM)

@ Caryn.. Im so so sorry about Buttons!!!!! Only saw your post now when I checked to see if the forums worked.

@  Rattieroos : (18 January 2018 - 09:16 PM)

@Lolly, thanks re Thunder. Winstons last moments were with his mommy. So sad :(

@  lollyh : (03 January 2018 - 08:21 AM)

Ok cool.thanks carny.i will check the link on my pc today.

@  lollyh : (03 January 2018 - 08:19 AM)

Oh no.i am sorry to hear that tails was talking about closing it down. :ratsad: I've made so many friends from here.

@  Caryn : (01 January 2018 - 05:32 PM)

@lollyh: Have you tried the temp link to access it via your computer? This one works for me now without any "deceptive site" warnings http://forums.internot.co.za/

@  Caryn : (01 January 2018 - 05:32 PM)

I'm not sure Tails is even around anymore :( She was talking about closing RN down altogether when they couldn't resolve the issue.

@  lollyh : (31 December 2017 - 09:11 AM)

Or can't tails start up a whole new forum &stake across all the email addresses...its a lot of hard work but could it work?

@  lollyh : (31 December 2017 - 09:03 AM)

cauliflower fritters.

Mmm, that sounds good! I went to Simply Asia last night for supper and had those devine corn fritters - my boys would have gone mad for them!
Very interesting to see the different ratty tastes.

my bunch got grapes,

lol Thought we had another "mice crispies / chicken soap" typo

lol well mines easy. They get Morvite ( Vanilla/ Banana/ honey, depending which bag is opened) every morning. Added to the morvite is some Moducare and crumbed up bread. ( I have some skinnies that just is not putting up weight so the fatties don't get bread) Mondays they also get fish oil added to breakfast. They also get a choice of bran, milleted cereal, linseed or crushed almonds added to the mix) Sometimes hipp or olli baby food is also mixed in, depending on what Luther doesn't want to eat. Then with that they get avi rodent pellets to last them through the day...or throw out the bars in ten minutes...their choice. Three days a week they get frozen or fresh veggies ( Depends what I have available) in the evening. Usually broccoli, mealies, peas or spinach. On weekends they only get their Avi pellets. But then they tend to get leftovers so its not like they are suffering. lol Oh yes, and these days they also get a dose of sticky baby fingers...no casualties so far...even Sugar seems to have some decency...or maybe she just has no suicidal tendencies...

Every day the same for my boys BUT last night I gave them each a baby spinach leaf which they seemed to really enjoy - came back for seconds. THen tried half a grape each and they ate that too ..... so perhaps they are becoming more health conscious lol

Funny, mine aren't fond of litchi. They love plums though (just the flesh of course, not pit) Mine are getting macaroni, dried cranberries, cheerios and grapes for supper tonight :)

Definitely not! I bite bits off the flesh and drop them on "rat plates". Parmalat yoghurt lids :)

I Googled it and saw on a few sites that it's very good for them. Blueberries too.

Ahh ok, cos I've been reading that people just toss the litchies in and let them nomnom it all. According to these people they end up leaving the stones, but I was unsure I'd be confident enough in them to do that lol

Boys definately on a health fad this week - in addition to their normal fruit/veg I gave them another baby spinach leaf last night and ended up putting a whole handfull in their cage at bed time where I left them nonnomming happily. :rolleyes:

Macro had coconut, grapes and a chickenbone (she's been ignoring her main mix so letting her eat that before more fresh snacks) and Iso had butternut, rice and cauliflower, chewed coconut (i chewed it for her *blush*), a grape and this morning some ensure and porridge. Edited to add I was going to give them some cooked asaparagus but I didnt know if they could have. Turns out, it should be fine for them :)
