Re: A lovely story of tolerance :-)

That's pretty cool blade and I especially like it because I have a couple of pet rats.

Some little cuties you have there :-)
I keep spraying him with a mist of water :-)
Yep, gorgeous creatures they are.
Furry little bundles of fun with personalities :-)
We had white rats before the two brown guys but I don't have any pics of those handy.
My daughter has a bad record with pets longevity so we named him Morte in expectation - but we call him Morty :-)

Re: A lovely story of tolerance :-)

Thanks, yours look like Males. I hear they are much more calm. Ours have been females but they are still great just always on the go. Here's a pic of our first one, all white and here name was Luca. I think we'll always have rats but my wife says no. Our current two are 2 years old this Spring so nearing the end sadly. We love them.

Some of our whites were female and I would say the males are more laid back - lazy we call it :-)

I've had guinea pigs as well and they are cute but I find them a bit too sooky for me :-)

Very cute Loopy. My buddy has one but it always seems to bite. You think he's just going to nibble them Wham! Bigger poops and eats like a horse non stop too!

Regarding the soft underbelly thing. These little guys aren't exactly a macho pet like a big dog or something but we love them.

Mine catch me out with the nibbling sometimes too.. and as for the poops.. don't even go there!!! I've never known a pet poop so much!!!

I regularly get them out on the sofa and Susan likes climbing up SSB's back and hiding in his hair.. Only trouble is the last time she did it she wee'd down his back!!!!!! He was screaming like a girl and got straight in the bath!!!!

Needless to say Susan isn't allowed on his shoulder anymore

Yes, I can't imagine seeing a photo of a leopard and a guinea pig :-)

Our Guineas aren't frightened by Dog towering over them when they are out.. If anything they are curious about each other
