So Ratchet decided to tease me yesterday.
It's been so long since he's built a nest, and any attempts from him are very poor at best. "Here mom, have 3 bubbles. No, you're not getting any more."
Well, yesterday when I went to feed him his lunch (I've spread his feedings out since he gets bloated and because I like to watch him eat like a creeper), I saw that he had uprooted some more of his anacharis. That was nothing new considering his temperament to them. Upon closer inspection, I saw that he had actually started a nest that was way more than 3 bubbles.
Unfortunately, as customary for him, he gave up on the project in favor of attacking everything.
