I feel like doing a post dedicated to my lovely lil pets. We are getting a third rat (with curly hair!) on Sunday, and I thought I would engross you all with some pictures of Storm (the grey one) and Buffy (the little white and grey/brown one).
Buffy loves squeezing into her coconut, which hangs from the ceiling of her cage. We put food in it and she shimmies her way up the cage bars, stretches over to the coconut, and clambers in (VERY ungracefully!). Once in she proceeds to use the freedom from greedy Storm to devour all of the food she can, without having it nicked off her!
Storm is more difficult to photograph – she’s just too darn fast! In the blink of an eye she can zoom across the room and under the sofa – all too often with a morsel of food that she has nicked off us! She is blurry in these picks, but at least you can see a) how fat she is through nicking Buffy’s food, and b) what a lovely deep grey she is.
It’s odd to think that one day Buffy will be almost entirely white – her hair will fade from now on in, and soon she’ll just be left with a hint of her hood.
Aren’t they gorgeous!?
