Meet Bolin! My rescue feeder and first rat! He's come a long way from being lonely and extremely skittish* (but still energetic and squirmy) and it's all thanks to his new family. *Since he was a feeder it's likely he was taken away from his mother too soon, before 4 weeks as he looks about the same size as the twins Wei and Wing whom where born about 2 months ago.
These are my two new ratties. I got two females for breeding. Leftside is Tulip and rightside is Violet. Very sweet 5 week old girls. I'm glad I got them out of the situation they were in. Whatever she was doing the girl I got them from wasn't doing it right. Both Were very thirsty when I got them set up and looked pretty underweight. luckily they are doing much better since getting more nutrition in them and receiving 4 days worth of antibiotics. Don't worry they won't stay in a small tub forever they are just quarantined right now.
For those not clued in... to lose two #petbabies with in a 6 month time frame is a bit maddening really...
09.26.18 is the night Rock #passedaway in my arms.
We'd almost had him for a year and though he was still a touch skittish toward us, he was such a sweet big brother for At. Our "lil'Chunk" of RockyRoad 😢 with his nipping tendencies when it came to yoggies and his sneaky use of the wheel [I never did manage to catch him on video] was such a goofball. Feeling his soul leave his body.. that vibration with all it's eerie-ness is unforgettable, almost like it left his body to join mine.
In a way I wish I had that finite moment with each of those I've lost, human and animal alike because though I know they're gone... in a way I've always lacked closure. Seeing loved ones in caskets painted up damn near unrecognizable or only ever seeing an urn just never cemented the fact that they're well and truly gone from this plain I suppose. It makes me regret quite a few choices as well.. hands I could've held so they too could stick with me in away... weird I know but I'm #spiritual so #dealwithit or #fuckoff 😾 .
Basil’s personality and confidence have really blossomed in such a short time! The first video was the day I got her and the last video was just a week ago, letting me pet her until she fell asleep! She’s still got a ways to go in regards to her skittishness, but she’s coming along! 😍🐀
So last Friday, the 5th of October, at around 2pm, our little baby boy rat Patrick passed away on my lap. We're obviously very sad and the house feels empty but he is now at peace and in pet heaven with his brother Ernest and brother from another species, Charlie our bear ❤️ #ratsofinstagram#petsofinstagram#ratboy#ratbaby#petrat#restinpeace
Am I a modern-day Kelly Kapowski yet? I feel like I'm close, though my hair is a tiny bit flat in comparison haha. & now I totally have the theme song stuck in my head! Who else watched Saved by the Bell?
Thank you, thank you, thank you Princess Anne Fish, for quite possibly one of the best girl dates I've ever been on! Complete with mini vegan ice creams, peach iced tea Snapple, & jamming out to T Swift in the car. More pictures in my story! & boomerangs, Bc I totally learned how to do that TODAY.
