Rat pictured: Rex
Stopped intros about a week ago. The rescue boys kept pushing their luck and then getting attacked by my original four boys. Still keeping the rescues, don't worry. I'm not going to bother trying to introduce them again though, Ham got bit pretty bad and had a massive gash on his shoulder (not got infected so far and I'm cleaning it well, didn't need stitches, but wasn't far off) so the two rescues are on their own for now. They're in an Alaska cage right now (approx- h: 50, w: 85, d: 40 cm) which isn't ideal and definitely isn't suitable long term, but it's all I have as the rescue boys were a bit of an impulse buy (I don't recommend or support impulse buying animals, especially if you haven't done any research on that animal, however I needed to get them out of the tiny tank they were living in and I knew I already had a cage, even if it wasn't the most suitable size, and knowledge and supplies to care for them). They won't be in it for long, as I'm getting the girls a bigger cage for Christmas and then the rescues can go in the girls old cage ( savic freddy, approx- h: 80, w: 80, d: 50 cm) which will be a much better size for them. I'm also hoping that if January's litter works out, there'll be a pair or more males so I can try introducing the rescues to some babies. If the litter doesn't work out like that I'll buy some males from a breeder to try to introduce. If they don't get on with the babies, I'm almost certain my original boys will accept them without a fuss. I'm hoping everything will work out okay, I'm also really hoping the rescues will accept babies whilst the two of them are together, as they are already over a year old and I really don't want one of them to end up on their own.

Mountain Buggy introduces their fifth special edition print, ‘mischief in the meadow’; celebrating the Year of the Rat﹘the first of twelve animals in the Chinese Zodiac.
The print ‘mischief in the meadow’ sets a whimsical and beautiful scene; a ‘mischief’ of rats playing amongst a midnight meadow of lilies and African violets - lucky flowers for Year of the Rat.
Emerging in Tang dynasty China, the millennia old painting technique of ink wash, delicately portrays optimism, quick-wit and resourceful traits of the rat that are well liked by all, through the lucky colours of gold, green and blue. ‘mischief in the meadow’ is a playful art piece, magical and fun for both parent and child.
Available now on the Nano.
