Dear Mommy (SisMorphine),

Sorry we haven't posted pictures in awhile, getting time on the computer while the furless ones are sleeping and the big furry creatures are not watching is tough since they figured out how we were escaping from our cage.

We're doing great Mom! We get to play and walk all over the furless ones. They feed us lots of yummy stuff like ham, peas, carrots, green beans, cheerios, cheese-its, apple, banana, cheddar cheese, bacon, roast beast, peaches and other good stuffs. We like timber wolf dog food better than that yucky cat food. Our favorite super good rat treats are Captain Crunch and YoGos.

They treat us like little rodent royalty.

Bacon likes to sit with the cranky furless one in his chair
Image

Image

and sit on his shoulder while he watches the big loud box
Image

The cranky furless one also thinks it's cute when Bacon sits on his shoulder and gives himself a bath.
Image

Image

Image

After his bath, Bacon crawls down to snuggle
Image

Image

When Bacon wakes up, he tells Cranky that he's the best, even if his PJ pants are loud and ugly.
Image


Veal likes to crawl around on the cranky furless one when he gets home from work, before the black furry creature and the wobbly furless one come home from work.
Image

The cranky furless one gives us lots of treats, uhmmm good!!
Image

Image

Image

Hey you, got any more of those yummy things?
Image

Then Bacon gets his turn to run around on the cranky oneImage


Our furless room mate thinks she's the Pied Piper, she plays music for us on her flute. Bacon likes to listen close, but Veal likes to sit on top of the cage unless one of the other furless ones decides to hold him.
Image

Image

Ohhhh, Bacon likes that Song!!
Image


One of Veal's favorite places to snuggle is with his furless roommate.
Image

Image

Nothing like a nice nap after lots of yummy treats!
Image

Image


We'll post some more pictures soon, Mom!

Love your Boys,

The Meat Brothers,

Bacon

ps.

The wobbly furless one took some more pictures of us, she'll post them in a little while.

They are being BEYOND loved down there, so I'm okay with it :)

Awwwww. They are soo ocute!

And that brings up a question. We have an empty 75 gallon aquarium. We had 2 foot long Oscars in there (until I somehow killed them :| ) & then had Ally the Alligator, but he/she got released in Bayou Manchac once he/she was old enough & big enough. I'm wanting to get another alligator (yes I have a wildlife permit :wink: ), but my husband wants another Guinnea Pig (our last one passed of cancer). However, the petstore people told us Guinnea Pigs need a wire cage so that they have a constant flow of air for circulation. They stated that the GP would not surive in the aquarium. I'm not sure if that's really true or not (I mean, it's a HUGE aquarium & it's not like we'd put a top on it.....we'd have a friend make us a screen top if necessary. But what about fancy rats? Would a 75 gallon aquarium work for them?

Nope, from what I understand, they'd be more apt to get respiratory infections.

Alyssa could probably tell you more.

I know people who do keep them in large tanks, but it's not a good idea. They need a lot of air circulation (as do guinea pigs and rabbits and such). ALSO never put a mammal in a tank that once housed any reptiles or fish. I can't remember exactly what the illnesses are (it's been a while) but they can stay in the corners of the tanks (you know where the glue is) no matter how much you clean the tanks, and your mammals won't make it very long.
