Meet Pancake & Angelina

12 June 2008 ~ 12:51

We adopted two little 3-month-old does from a rat rescue called Furry Friends last Saturday, a Pink Eyed White and a Himalayan. We've called the PEW Angelina, after the children's character Angelina Ballerina, and the Himmy Pancake, after one of the meerkats on Meerkat Manor.

This is them:

We're terribly worried about mixing them with our two 'big girls' Mary & Sapphire due to a horrific incident a couple of years ago where an adult rat of ours killed two 6-week-old kittens. We'll have a go at the weekend though. When we collected them we found they had lice so we had to treat them for that before we could think of introducing them to the others.

I really really hope they can all become one big happy colony. Currently Pancake & Angelina are in one of our spare cages. They are adorable but tend to poop when you pick them up, though I'm sure they'll soon get over that.
