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.

@  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)

@  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 haven't posted in years so I thought I'd do a quick catch up of who's who in my life now :) I decided to give boys a try! We brought home a pair of babies two weeks ago and are busy doing introductions with our established mischief of eight bucks.

 

First one up: Managed to catch myself a fiancé :P

20180507_193821_zpsncfphg1d.jpg

 

My older eight bucks. Top: Fizzing Whizzbee (all you see is a black tail), Sugar Quill, Pepper Imp. Middle: Bertie Bott, Drooble Gum. Bottom: Grindylow, Snidget (with his gorgeous jester smile), Niffler.

20180516_115827_zpsy8hbc1as.jpg

 

Matthew (my fiancé) says that Niffler is my favourite. The truth is, he's just a mommy's boy who constantly wants attention from me. I have to take him to the vet tomorrow because I've found a swelling on his side. I'm hoping it's an abscess and nothing more sinister.

20180514_101520_zpssw7cxkth.jpg

 

Niffler's brother Grindylow isn't really a people rat. He's a tiny thing with short man syndrome :P

20171231_191011_zpszy10dms3.jpg

 

Just realised that I have no unblurred photos of my third smeeze, Snidget. He's a sweet, licky daddy's boy.

 

Next in age are my three lab rats. I struggle to tell them apart sometimes but there's a few differences if I can compare two of them lol They're the only rescues in my mischief. There's a lab that needs female rats for breast cancer research. When they breed more subjects, all the boys are surplus that are euthanased when they're around 3 weeks old. Someone in the facility sneaks out a few boys whenever she can.

Despite their rough start, all three PEWs are very licky and will spend half of free roam making sure mommy is cleaned to their high standards.

Quill is a silvermane rex who is impossible to photograph because he never stays still!

His black rex brother, Fizz, is a cuddly photogenic sweetheart (with Grindylow here)

The new babies!

Nox is a total drama queen who is dragging out the introductions because he squeaks and noses off anytime anyone even looks in his direction. He's a black variegated rex, although it's difficult to see in this photo because he's going through a baby moult.

Lumos is much braver than his brother, Nox. He's curious and loves to explore.
