Spoiled Rat Update!

Jan. 17th, 2018 | 12:32 pm

: Grue is hunkering down in all of Flathead's favorite spots, emitting a stream of tiny /feep feep/ noises. I think he's calling for his brother. :(

Spoiled Rat Update!

Jan. 16th, 2018 | 05:11 pm

: Flathead survived Arisia, but went downhill fast Monday morning. He won't really eat, and I discovered the reason he didn't want me turning him over to wash his belly for him is that he's developed a bedsore that he doesn't want me to touch. His back feet don't work so great anymore. He's unhappy. He is getting all the chocolate Ensure and drugs he will take. At this point, even if he has a bit too much Tylenol, he'll be gone before it catches up to him. There is a very nice vet just down the street; she couldn't work us in today, and I didn't want to subject the poor rat to the Green Line, so we go in tomorrow at 4. Le Roi est (presque) mort. Vive le Roi.

Spoiled Rat Update!

Jan. 3rd, 2018 | 12:01 pm

: Flathead has had a bad case of snurfles for, in rat terms, eternity. Rats learn quickly, and he unfortunately learned that solid food didn't agree with him. He's been living mostly on Ensure (which was handy for me, because he'll take his antibiotics without complaint if they're chocolate-flavored), but he is feeling much better now, and it's time for him to go back to feeding himself rather than making me stand there with tiny dishes and an eyedropper. So over the past few days, I have had a lot of interactions that look like the following: Me: Hey, Flathead. Eat this. Flathead: no im sick Me: Yes, but it's food. Flathead: ... ... ... ... ok. It works, but we've had to go through this with corn, tofu, sticky rice, etc. Eventually he'll reach a tipping point and generalize this to just stuffing his face again, but I was particularly anxious to get him back to gnawing on abrasive things, because his teeth are getting a bit long. To that end, I dunked several pieces of uncooked pasta in Ensure last night and sat there until he licked them clean, then test-nibbled to see if it was chocolate all the way through. He kept having to stop and chitter while feeding the first rotino into his mouth, because he was feeding a rotino into his mouth, and that used to be one of his favorite hobbies. Now he knows he can do it again. Yay.
