How strange :blink: I get to the usual full site :/

@  DiscoMoose : (15 May 2018 - 01:36 PM)

Ah... makes sense about the warning page. So glad she found a workaround, so as not to scare of potential new forum peeps... still, if I visit ratanooga.co.za I get only a 'hello' on the page *blush*

@  Caryn : (13 May 2018 - 05:48 PM)

Tails created the alternative forum address to get around that big red warning page, hence the redirection. No idea what's going on in general though, haven't heard from Tails in ages :( The main Ratanooga.co.za website though is still up and running as per normal.

@  DiscoMoose : (11 May 2018 - 03:24 PM)

I was also not so down with the big red virus warning the forum was making (i knew it was safe, but it disturbed my sense of loving things that are orderly) - so i'm happy that's gone. Some other observations: why is the forum redirecting to internot.co.za? what is happening to ratanooga.co.za? the page source over there is just a single 'hello'...? hmm curiouser and curiouser... ;)

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:

I'm devastated. Got home from work yesterday and Starshine was not in the cage. The boys are claiming ignorance and so I have no idea when in the day she escaped. I know the cats didn't get her because there is no evidence left behind. I have searched the house but she could be anywhere. Is there any hope at all that she will come back - considering I've only had her two weeks? What can I do to encourage her return? And do I need to get a new friend for Rattles immediately or should I wait? Very heartbroken

when my ratties escape or take a walk about-my house comes to a immediate stand still. lol .i go into panicked mode.every family member gets called,stop what you doing & we search as we have 4 jack russels.thankfully they don't have much interest in my rats except the youngest jackie called snoopy.but i cant take the chance.

 

in my experience usually if they have gotten out during the day.they usually will go curl up in a nice warm sleeping spot somewhere.then the rattie will come out later on at night looking for food & exploring,sometimes i have even let my other ratties out in my room to explore & help me find her.touch wood.the escapee comes running out when my girls go walk about. most of the time my escappes gave either hidden under my bed or in my bedroom cupboard. :Kiss:

Thanks Lolly. Yes, very relieved indeed and my very sad little boy is happy too! I think ill be less panicked when they're older and completely used to us!

Glad to hear you found her!   Almost 90% of the people I know who've had rats escape have found them wedged inside pillows, duvets, inners, etc lol    And I'm not surprised, my girls are all free roam and that's where they sleep most of the time by choice too :D

 

Have deleted the duplicate posts.  Not sure why but the forums been doing it for ages now where it gives an error or freezes, but the topic actually does post.  Sorry about that! :(
