She says she has had the captcha disabled, so the problem should be solved now. Hopefully people are able to join up without hassle if they try again.

Ah geez, I'll see if I can reach Tails about it

@  ronelrat : (08 July 2018 - 10:02 AM)

There are people wanting to join the forum who says they received a message asking for a security code?

@  Caryn : (07 July 2018 - 05:49 PM)

Two of my girls over the years have had strokes. Both were still alive when I found them but suffering side effects ie: paralysis, loss of cognitive function. Sadly there is not much that can be done if they are very far gone, smaller strokes can be treated and rats can recover. Seizures are horrible. Mavdb had a couple of boys with issues, you may be able to find posts here on the forum.

@  lollyh : (07 July 2018 - 01:56 PM)

Thank you caryn.im so heartsore.i went out for dinner last night & he was fine,came back home 1 hour later & found him at the bottom of the cage like he was didnt know where he was . :puppy_dog_eyes: .do you have any knowledge on seizures or strokes?

@  Caryn : (07 July 2018 - 12:23 PM)

So very sorry :ratsad:

@  lollyh : (07 July 2018 - 05:11 AM)

Lost my moo lastnight. :ratsad: I'm still in shock.

@  lollyh : (29 June 2018 - 12:04 AM)

Thank you caryn sway. *hugs* *hugs*

@  Caryn : (27 June 2018 - 08:53 AM)

You're not mad at all for wanting to help her :ratsad:

@  lollyh : (25 June 2018 - 04:33 PM)

Thank you caryn.yes i know you would.:-).i love her so much.i dont care about the cost.really i dont.even though everyone around me says im mad & just put her down. :bigeyecry: .no unfortunately i don't have an edgars account.

@  Caryn : (25 June 2018 - 11:43 AM)

Sorry you're going through that with your girl. You know I'd opt for the surgery, Dr O says he can do it and I trust him completely. I realise cost is an issue though. Do you have an Edgars acct you can pay with or can you sign a debit order with them? That's what I usually do for larger surgery costs.

@  lollyh : (25 June 2018 - 09:34 AM)

i have such a hard decision to make. :bigeyerat:

@  Caryn : (18 June 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Hopefully we can get more old members back and some new ones :D

I am not in charge of feeding this week, my boyfriend and I take turns so this is his week to feed the boys. I think they like it when he's in charge because he seems more generous with the portions (not so good when I'm trying to control Poker's weight) lol

Nothing new for mine - they are still on their boring diet while I try desperately to get their weight down - shame. I did try and give them a mixed salad the other night instead of their fruit/veg mash, but my goodness, did they make a mess - I have little tomatoe pips all over the carpet and purple stains from the grapes lol And they didn't really seem to enjoy eating it so much as playing with and storing it!

My girls have been on a mango kick. After slicing the flesh from the pip I put the pip in the cage...what fun stickiness! They seem to have fun.

Tonight they'll have cartilage from chicken bones and some lettuce leaves to balance it out a bit http://forums.ratano...tyle_emoticons/default/winking.gif

Tried the jelly treat on Saturday - NEVER again - they each managed to get a dollop and then tried to run off with their treat - needless to say, I now not only have tomato and grape stains, I have red rasberry stains EVERYWHERE - lol

Mine got a scrambled egg which they finished in seconds so a little later I gave them their usual veg as well - peas, corn, broccoli, butternut, sweet potatoe - scoffed that in seconds too - you would swear I was starving them lol (That was last night - their day food is always cereal in the morning and Reggie Rat for the day)

My girls love blueberries! I've been giving them leftover salad the past coupla days and basmati rice. They even liked the sweet and sour sauce I made drizzled on the rice.

My girls had some cauliflower for breakfast and they seem to really like 'easy peeler' citrus. Not sure if it's orange or naartjie. The insane trio also seem like wasabi peanuts of all things! And it's quite hectic wasabi. Really opens up your sinuses.
