My heart felt like it was in pieces. Roo would have turned 3 next Tuesday. I keep expecting to see them in their cage or have them on the bed with me.

Hi all.

 

So friday i found a new pet store near us which sell mainly food products & some medicine products. no pets their.yay!! so no temptation to add any new additions to me furbabies. :ratgiggle:

 

& while i was browsing,i found this Versele-laga cripy snack popcorn. the lady said its for small mammals (which is what it says on the bag) & is new in store & is also for rats & while looking on the ingredients it says protein 10% ,which i thought was low (hope i was right?) & scrutinized the bag.not many sunflower seeds at all!! which i was amazed so i bought it. *blush* . 650g bag for R80.was that expensive?

 

my girls didn't want it at first,down right turned their noses up at all.but the next day & today they are almost fighting over it.its suppose to mixed with their main food i think but my girls are eating it up like food. *blush* :ratcookie:

 

but now i am wondering is it ok for ratties?.

 

here is the link & info on it

http://www.petzilla....ck-popcorn.html

this link has a picture of what the food looks like.i have alot more puff wheat in my bag.

I've bought it before and given it as a snack more than a meal.. added a small handful in the cage twice a week.. to me it looked like it was more 'sweeties' than food...

Also bought it as a snack for my boys. They don't eat the rings though. Just something different once a week for them.

It does state on the website info for it that it's not a complete dry mix and should be used as a snack/treat.  Personally I wasn't keen on the look of it, I've seen it at Village Vet in Kloof too Lollyh.  It just seemed to be full of a lot of corn flakes (which isn't good anyway) and puffed wheat (which my girls don't really eat), so I've never bothered to try it.
