It seems to be a good arrangment for now, and they all get cuddled and free-ranged together at night. :)
Aw, I do hope your guy gets better soon! It's sweet they are all getting lots of love, though.
Sansa is sitting on my shoulder as I type this, rooting through my hair. I'd have got rats AGES ago if I'd known they were such darlings!
