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)

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

What are some of your favourite novels and films featuring rats and/or mice?

I've read and watched a couple over the years but wondering if I've missed any.

Today I picked up a copy of Philip Pullman's "I Was A Rat! Or The Case of The Scarlet Slippers" and am loving it!

Hi Laurie.

My favorite film of course in ratatouille.:-).

My favorite comic book is scurry which discomoose got me hooked on.haha. .its not about rats though but mice instead.but it's really cute & the artist work is fantastic.just love it.heres a link: https://www.scurrycomic.com


I bought this book called Firmin by author Sam Savage, about a rat runt in 1960s Boston who learns to read. I haven't started it yet but it sounds really cute.

The one movie that stood out from my childhood was Secret of N.I.M.H    I still adore it completely and was super excited when I finally found a copy on DVD :D

It was based off the book Mrs Frisby and The Rats of N.I.M.H but I only got a chance to read the book very recently funny enough :)
