I'm going to end up on Hoarders....

I won’t go so far as to say the “single life” suits me, but I’m setting in. Although we didn’t appreciate it at the time, LT Fromage and I have done more than our share of the long distance thing, and what we learned then is paying off now.

Know what I’ve been staying busy with? Lots and lots of rats. 30 rats, to be exact.

Yes. 30.

Two of our “boys” developed babies instead of balls. Lesson learned: Use google to sex your own rats, never trust the pet store employees. Ever.

Out of character, it was I who came to terms with the fact that some of our grandbabies may end up snake food (there are only so many people out there looking for pet rats, but no shortage of hungry reptiles). Not to be cold hearted, but everyone has to eat, and frankly, I don’t have enough names for all those kids.

No hate mail, please. You don’t have to worry, no one is going to end up snake food; LT Fromage shut that down faster than I could finish suggesting it. “Try to find them homes,” he said before he left, “but any you can’t, we’re keeping.” Easy for him to say, he’s not the one cleaning cages every 48 hours!

Maybe next month the giveaway prize will be a itty-bitty Fromage… just kidding…. Maybe….

*seriously, if you want one, I’m willing to travel to deliver them. The first 11 will be ready the first week of March and the next 11 about 4 weeks later.

**I already picked up next month’s goodie anyway. Be sure to keep an eye out for it!

***Be sure to enter this month’s giveaway before the 23rd, you can leave your comment here!


  1. I saw an episode of animal hoarders with lots of rats. He had over a thousand, all running around his house. It was destroyed. He finally agreed to give them all up to a rat rescue. (I guess there's a rescue service for every kind of animal; once there was even a chicken rescue for people who liked to adopt chickens.) He kept all but one, who he thought was male. The rescue showed him that she was indeed female.

    p.s. I like your new blog background. But I miss the phrase, "where happiness is cheese shaped." :-)

  2. What about letting them loose? It's KINDA like giving them a new home and you won't really be responsible if they die. Your neighbors might hate you though.
