Well, took out all the bedding from the rat cage and put in a litter box. I'm so very tired of vacuuming up bedding around the house. Rats are like "Why da cage bare?" Please, my dear rats, please use the litter box. I read that it's fairly easy to train them to use one and that females pick it up faster. *fingers crossed*
Aokashi, that's some Petco but I guess I wouldn't expect any less from the middle of NYC. *moves to NYC and lives with brother and roommate in apartment that is 600 square feet so she can shop at nice Petco*
Can he swim okay, DQ? Poor guy, he's been through the war. I'm so glad you were able to take him after all.
He swims fine. I can't tell if he's got ventrals or not. If so he holds them close to his body. He ate a pellet earlier and I'll probably offer another one later. I'm getting some Atisons from another member so he'll be eating good, nutricious food.
how many do you have there Aokashi? I can only see three definitively.
Three in that pic... I have a total of 4 adults one juvies and a few babies I see from time to time. Random mix of yellow, rilli and bluberry... lol, I suspect there may be a baby cherry, but cant quite tell >.>
I purigened the tank yesterday, so it's clear forte first time in... 3 months?
I have to get some corncob bedding to use in the litter box. If I use the old stuff, they just burrow in it and throw it all out. Dang. Oh and dang again. I hear Delilah chewing on the litter box. -____- Please girls, don't do this to me!
Aokashi, how do you recharge your Purigen? I tried Seachem's bleaching method and so far, it's taken over a week. First it took well over four days to actually bleach the dumb pouch back to normal, using 3x the recommended dose of bleach. Now it's taking forever to get the bleach out. I'm thinking of trying Nitra-Zorb next since it can be recharged via saltwater.
