My family is on our way to Kansas so we can spend Christmas with our relatives.
I dropped Bunny and Button off at a family friend’s house – and had a panic attack. Now I’m talking to anything remotely cute like I do with my ratties, even animals on Minecraft. -_-
If you’re going on vacation, it’s best to leave your rats behind (no matter how much you want to take them) with a babysitter. Make a care sheet with instructions on how to handle rats (be sure to include the “no picking them up by their tails” part), feeding, playtime, cleaning, and note any medical conditions and what to do if something serious arises. Go over the big points when you drop them off, and maybe call your babysitter once or twice during your trip (depending on how long it is) to check up on things. (more…)
