November 30, 2009 - Rats are known to gnaw
everything you give them to pieces in no time at all. While this is true
most of the time, my boys sometimes can be very
considerate when I buy them new stuff. Take the first hammock I bought
them, it lasted well over a year (!). However, you never can tell when
they'll suddenly decide it's time to shred something.
Yesterday I decided to hang the little house of straw (a
"Strawy") in the cage again. I've originally introduced this
Strawy to Chester &
July 2, 2005, and I've put in the
cage every once in a while ever since. Most of the time the rats would
sometimes sit inside the house, but otherwise leave it alone. But today I
found Uisce on top of the house, slowly but
enthusiastically gnawing it to pieces. Oh well, as long as he enjoys
himself. I know I'm sure enjoying myself watching him.
