U are here
October 13, 2008 - Yesterday I went down to
Ratcity to finally pick up
Uisce & Ulixes.
After the "long" way home I thought they would be weary, but not
so. After quickly eating half a ratty biscuit they started to explore both
the inside and outside of their temporary cage.
After a while they finally fell asleep in the green Sputnik hanging from
the ceiling of the cage.
This afternoon I first introduced the two new boys to
Lefty, and then to
Pancho. Pancho initially was a bit rough with
both "U" boys, nothing too serious
though, and certainly no real agression. So I then put Lefty and Uisce
& Ulixes in the stripped down big cage
(stripped down: no houses, tunnels, or other places to hide in) to see what
would happen. Nothing is what happened. That is to say, Lefty started
eating, almost ignoring the youngsters running up and down the cage. Then I
added Pancho, and he immediately went after U&U, while I watched them
all closely to make sure nobody would get hurt.
And thusfar nobody has been hurt. :-) Pancho
is constantly chasing the new boys to show them who's is charge. U&U
seem somewhat frightened and intimidated by Pancho, but still they keep
challenging him. In other words, they are clearly sorting things out among
themselves. I guess it's alright then to leave the four of them together
for the night already, there's not much more I can do now. So good
