Yayyy!

I'll copy and paste this one from a message I sent to Sakura so I don't have to type it again: "The rats are little darlings. When we first brought them home, they peeked up at me from the carrying box and let me pet them. I held them one at a time while Jake was taking care of some finishing touches on the cage (Yeah, I know I was supposed to wait a few days, but I couldn't help myself). They let me rub them and ran around all over me until each one found their way into my hair. Lucy, our albino and more skittish one, likes to dig through my hair and sit there and groom herself. The black and white one, Trouble, likes to sleep up there. We let them play on the bed, too. I laid down to rest with them and they explored, climbing around in my shirt this time. And one kept sniffing my ear and digging through my hair. Then they fell asleep and rested with me. They are little tickle monsters!!! Their little feet and whiskers tickle so much. One time, we tried putting them in a playpen. They got scared and so we took them back. I cried because I thought they were mad at me, lol. They seemed like they knew it hurt my feelings. They acted really mopey until we took them out and I played with them again. They were easy to catch that time, too. They just sat there looking sad. I just think it's interesting how their mood always seems to match mine."


Here's a couple more! Trouble is the nibbler (hence the name Trouble) and I was laying around with my rats on the bed as usual. The little girl bit my hand a little too hard so I squeaked. I'll be darned if the cutie didn't give a quiet squeak back, lick where she bit me, and then come lick me once on the cheek and curl back up in my shirt. She acted like she was sorry. It was so sweet.

And today! I noticed how happy they're getting whenever I walk by the cage and talk to them. They climb up the side excitedly to say hello to me. (: I opened the cage to give them a treat and they were crawling all over the place, up my arm, and on the cage door, trying to get to me. I just took them out a little bit ago, and they were acting all hyper. Then, they curled up to me and went to sleep when we got them out! Jake said it's like they just wanted to get out to cuddle.

It's really neat how different their personalities are! They really are individuals. Sweet little Trouble is adventurous and then gets all sleepy, while little Lucy would rather cuddle most of the time.

You will always be my best friend, .

I took my sisters 10G and divided it 3 ways BUT its gonna be difficult if I have to do any matience on the tank as there is hardly any room for me to fit my hand into the shelf. The 20G is on the next shelf up and i'll be damed if I am gonna tear that down to adjust shelf height

it has a heater but now I need another filter

Catching up.

Bekah, yes, guppies can go with betta females in most cases. Try to get all males otherwise you'll have guppy babies coming out of your ears. Especially you, oh fish fertility goddess.

I love dogs because they are so awesome and you can take them places but I love cats because that's what I've been raised with. I know I'll never be without a cat.

Silverfang, huh. I have a Fluval C-something. So noisy I went back to Aquaclear. Fluval is supposed to be a really good, really high-end brand (if the price is anything to go by) but apparently not in the power filter department. Although, Aquaclears and Fluvals are made by the same company, Hagen.

For the last time fish, fry food is for the FRY! *glares at honey gouramis and flagfish*

xD I'm sure i'll have baby swordtails coming out of my ears in a week or two. Maybe i will try to get pretty guppy boys to go with my girls. Maybe not though. I would probably need a better filter, or at least a bunch of plants!

i could steal your guppy boy Sakura, is what i was hinting xD if, only if they could go with my girls

I need to take my meds for today. I fell asleep late last night and woke up today at 5:30 in the afternoon today, neglecting to take my meds. I think I should do that right now.
