What cuties! They look so inquisitive. And I have learnt something new... what a rat boggle is (and have just spent the last 20mins or so watching youtube videos!). I hope Scruffy is doing well, it sounds like you are giving her great care. How old are your rats? Do they all live in the same cage?
More about my beasts. They are rescue guinea pig brothers. I have had them for just over 2 years, and I guess that they were about 6mths old when we got them. They were originally called Tom & Jerry, but I felt this implied a hierarchy ( ), so they got renamed, Mark & Jeremy (after the tv show, Peep Show - I previously had guinea pigs named after characters in the tv show Porridge). They are very much best of friends, and often sleep cuddled up with each other.
Mark is the grumpiest guinea pig I have ever had! When he wants to he can be lovely, will sleep on your lap, lick your fingers and snuggle up. But when doesn't, he will give me a barge with his nose, teeth chatter, bite & even pee on me! He had a bladder stone removed earlier this year, and was quite unwell, and gave us a little bit of a fright. But now he is back to his grumpy self! Here he is being guinea pig shamed!
Jeremy is lovely. He is a quite a soppy guinea pig, who is also a bit of a scaredy cat with a big appetite. He is not the brightest, but he super sweet. Here he is looking very clean after his yearly bath...
