Personally (no offence meant to anyone) I can't imagine anything worse than dressing pets up, especially not small ones. The only time it does not bug me is when it is for the dogs benefit, ie a warm coat for one who feels the cold.

Not totally sure what chinnies can have but for some idea what you could ask for:

Hammock
Bed
Wooden house
Treat jar
Homemade treats
Toys
Something for nibbling and keeping teeth good


etc etc etc

Hope this helps!

1065  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The saga of the Seven Stripey Sock Monkeys! on: August 03, 2013 06:14:39 PM
Ok so as the title suggests I am in the middle of making  seven stripey sock monkeys, having never made one in my life before.  

The first one was done using a pattern that came in a kit with a pair of socks, some stuffing some thread a needle and two eyes. Although I am unhappy with him I have put 3-6 up for swap on the sweat shoppe swap as while I was making him I saw lots that could be improved and how to do so. Anyway this is Marvin. I plan to put all seven in here and you can all see how I progress.

I think I sent my questionnaire in for this, but have not heard anything yet. If I am accepted I will be making 6 stripey sock monkeys. Slighty funny story about these, I've always wanted to learn to make them but never got round to it. I bought a kit to make one on honeymoon at the beginning of July and made it, I am not very happy with how it came out, but felt it was something I could improve, with that in mind and planning to make for this swap I started one this evening (after finishing mine) I decided to scrap the pattern that came with the kit and do it my way and it is SO much better!! Anyhow ramble over. This is my original, but don't panic as I say the rest are better, will put up a pic of the ones (well one of) I am actually offering as soon as it's finished!

I hadn't twigged how relevant the phrase "Don't Panic" was until I was just telling a friend I've called him Marvin. (Who are the geeks in this swap other than me? Apologies if you don't get what on earth I'm on about!)

Aww what gorgeous piggies! Scruffy the rat seems very like Mark in that she can be really snugly or really grumpy! I'm not sure how old they are, as they are rescues with no background info. I have worked out that scruffy is about 18 months, Nony about seven and Blacky and Lola about 4-5 months.

I have kept rats for about 8 years now, I had to have a break between my last ones and these girls as they do not live long enough and it can be heart breaking, but was going mad without them, so I got some more eventually, was meant to be waiting until after the wedding but as often happens one day I saw a face in pets at home adoption centre, and I couldn't resist. I never buy direct from pet shops, but the adoption bit is different in my mind.

They do all live in the same cage. Sorry I forgot non ratty people wouldn't know what a boggle is. They also brux which is chattering their teeth, a bit like guinea pigs, but in a rat it is more often than not a sign of being happy.

Oops when I say the porch is completely scalable I do in fact mean sealable (in that they can't escape or do harm to themselves! I don't have mountaineer rats who need rooms to be scalable!

What cute rat toppers!

Tell me about it, I was so close to tears when I saw them!

AS promised here are some photos of my babies!



Nony (we couldn't decide on a name for her so she is A-Nony-mouserat



Blacky - when I first got her about 3 months ago she had obviously never been handled and was totally petrified of people, she'd scream if you ever went near her! I popped her and Nony, (who came with her and is absolutely the opposite, in that she loves cuddles) on the floor in our porch which is about 6 foot by 2, and completely scalable, thinking if I just sit here quietly for 30mins or so she may learn I'm not too scary, well 3 HOURS later I still had not been able to catch her to put her away! Having worked on her over the last few months she is now a different rat, she loves being cuddled, and yesterday I got my first boggle from her!



Lola, she was also petrified but instead of screaming she would take a lump out of your fingers. The amount of times I dripped blood onto the floor does not bear thinking about. But again she is now a different rat, very licky and my most affectionate!




Lastly Scruffy, she's been through the wars bless her. The week before my wedding we got up one day to find her eye was extremely swollen, so bad she could not close it so it was really dry too, of course we rushed her to the vets and got some eyedrops, on the way over I noticed she had a small tumor also. So we arranged when I picked her up after honeymoon to take her in and get it out. However when I picked her up she had lost a lot of weight, was lactating and had another 3 or 4 small lumps. From that we deduced it was a malignant tumor, most rat tumours are benign, and as it had created 3 lumps in two weeks if we took it out it would quickly grow back, so we decided just to go for palliative care. He gave me some medicine to stop her lactating and it has worked and she has put on the weight again and the lumps aren't growing fast so hopefully we'll have her a while yet, although of course there could be (and likely is) tumours on the inside as well. She is a lazy rat who likes snuggling in warm soft places, and is ALWAYS first to the foodbowl!

Sorry hope I haven't bored you all, would love to know a bit about all your fur babies, and the more info there is on them the better for your partner
