Spoiled Rat Update!

Apr. 19th, 2018 | 04:55 pm

: TIL that the rat likes grilled eel as much as I do. Having slept most of the preceding 24 hours, I gave up on getting myself to make food and ordered some una-avo rolls + miso, so that I would goddamn eat something other than NyQuil. Xyz appeared the nanosecond I brought the bag into the room and made as much noise as he possibly could scrambling around the cage. "helo mama ilu wat r u doin is it fud?" I gave him a roll and he went !!!!!OMFG SOOSHEE!!!!! and I'm glad I used the chopsticks or I think I would have lost a finger.

Spoiled Rat Update!

: Xyzzy went on his social call! He was very well-behaved. The vet was quite impressed that he was curious and sniffing things and letting himself be pet, rather than just freaking the fuck out and trying to dig through the bottom of his box. He was slightly less impressed with the whole being boxed and walked down the street, but not so put out that he didn't let me handle him when we got home. He was also, as it turns out, _1.76 pounds_. Jesus. Average for males is about 1.1-1.25 lbs; 2 lbs is like the biggest they get, and that's considered rare and gargantuan. I still love his fat ass, but Xyz IS going on a diet now.

Spoiled Rat Update!

: Plugh is not moving around too much anymore. He wants to cuddle his treats more than eat them. He is mostly just interested in being fed because it means Mommy loves him, not because he's hungry. I had to go to work today. I gave him Tylenol and Benadryl, cuddled him until he got dozy, then put him back in his hammock full of crumpled paper towels with a spoonful of Nutella. I think he'll sleep most of the time until I get back. If he doesn't, he can snack, and chew on the plastic spoon. He has an appointment tomorrow afternoon. Goddamnit. I hate this part.

Spoiled Rat Update!

: Xyzzy and Plugh are taking things okay. Plugh will undoubtedly be the next to go -- Xyzzy looks 100% fine and robust still -- but in the meantime they are making the best of it. Xyzzy has claimed Nest-Boxonia for his own kingdom, in the bottom of the cage. The cardboard boxes are HIS. He has even dragged one of the smaller food bowls in through an entrance, which is quite a feat, since I didn't think I cut them that big. I don't see teef-marks around the edges, so he must have just pulled with a great deal of determination. Plugh, on the other hand, has gathered all of the paper towels he can find outside of Xyzzy's box fortress, and dragged them into the big hammock on the top floor. Hammockistan has become the rat equivalent of a human taking every pillow, cushion, blanket, duvet, and plush animal they own and piling it on the bed, then burying themselves in the middle of the heap. I can just about see his nose poking out.
