    Make sure it's a name you don't feel daft calling - as some rats do get to know their names if you use them often enough!

    I'm teaching them the word "Door" at the moment, they will then learn "Hatch". See if I can get them to come to the roof hatch or the front door when I shout them :)

    Holy Thread Resurrection.....

    .......our first pair were Flo and Gladys and the boys we have now are Fred and George (George is the ginger one)

    Is sad day as they are both getting on now (2 1/2 easily) and both showing signs of Hind Leg Degeneration. Fred looks like he has a flipper and is almost at the point of just pulling himself round on his front legs. George is not far behind.

    Took hard decision yesterday that we need to take them to the vets and are preparing to say goodbye to 'The Boys'

    Jeez is that the lifespan of a Rat 2/3 years? Might be a good pet to teach the kids some life lessons .

    Yeah 2 1/2 is about normal and they can go through to 3.

    Is a very short lifespan they have.

    You have my sympathies Shelster, I know exactly how that feels. :(

    I loved having pet rats but after several pairs over the years I decided I couldn't keep going through that every 2 to 3 years; most of mine sadly developed cancer which is all too common in fancy rats. I still remember all of them very fondly though.

    Many thanks for that, greatly appreciated.

    Is hard. Like you, I think this will be our last pair for a very long time. WHile it is great having them for the time yo do, it is very short indeed.

    One of our last pair died of mammary tumours....that was not a good week as Gladys died on the Tuesday (in my hands too) which was 3 days before I deployed for 4 months.......
