Meet Caramello and Templeton – or Mello and Timmy for short – the two little rats who have now joined our household.
Son and grand-daughter collected them during the weekend from a local lady who breeds rats. Mello is the one on the left with the mink (silvery brown) colouring, and Timmy is black and white. They have adapted to their new home by thoroughly exploring every inch of their cage and tentatively trying out the exercise wheel.
With our high risk of having a natural disaster (especially a major earthquake in this area), we like to keep some supplies on hand. Mostly this is canned goods and sealed packets of rice and cereal, and today I pulled it all out of the cupboard and sorted it out.
This seems to need doing on a fairly regular basis so that we can keep things rotated correctly. Ideally rotation would happen smoothly, but in reality it never seems to!
I saw some of these Muscari (grape hyacinths) flowering the other day. They are such a pretty reminder of spring on its way.
I hope everyone has a great day 😊
