Population Growth

I know a lot of you shuddered when I said Beau had a pet rat. Well he has acquired another one in the past month or so to keep her company. Yep, two in the house are probably two too many, I hear you say.
David came home from Bendigo on the weekend and brought his three....YES THREE! rats with him. Ok that is quite enough your panicked brains are thinking. Five rats is turning into a mini plague!!!!!! On a not very necessary close inspection of Kamikaze ( wife of Godzilla and mother of Son of Godzilla) it was very obvious that there was going to be something happening in the not too distant future.

Yep babies!!!! There are nine hairless little squeaky things in there. So it wouldn't happen again I rounded up a box and some wire and set up a little nursery for Mum and babes.
In only a couple of days they have grown quite a bit, but still very very tiny.

The very awesome Godzilla is an extremely proud Dad though I think this might be the last batch of babies he manages to sire....if I have my way!
So now two or even five rats in the house seem like nothing now there are 14 of them in residence.

Terrible two!!!!

Well you would think they knew exactly what I was telling them wouldn't you? Sorry the photo isn't very good but you just have to grab these little moments when you can. They are great mates  but we quickly get over the cat  constantly attacking Machicho . He actually straddles her and goes for the neck!!! At the moment he is Fred because for some reason I am having a very hard time finding the right name for him. Fred doesn't really suit him either.

 I rarely mention my website on my Blog but this week it is The Back Shed's second birthday. Pretty much everything has been reduced (except for the new stuff) so you might find a cheap Christmas present in there somewhere .

Summer will soon be here and with it comes flies, unbearable heat and snakes. Unfortunately the snakes are arriving a little early. Cato and Machicho found this one up the back yard the other day. We now know for sure that Cato hunts them and machicho will attack them. Hopefully that will be the last one we see????
