Belly Up to the Bar, Boys! (and Girls!)

Filed under: Rats! — folkcat at 12:31 pm on Thursday, August 14, 2008

It would be darned easy to get the idea that the Rattie Family only ever sleeps, if all you judged from was recent pictures on this blog. In fact, however, they are occasionally seen doing other things.

Most notably, they eat. And they’re getting along well enough, they don’t mind doing it together.

If you count the visible tails, then add in Lily (who is facing us on the left), all five Ratties are present in this group, chowing down happily and ignoring any remaining interpersonal issues they may have. All for the sake of the garbanzo beans and brocolli.

After all, a rat has to have his or her priorities!

Hey, *I’d* belly up to the bar with some questionable characters for garbanzo beans and broccoli. Yum!

Eating and sleeping are at least the two most important things! Hopefully they’ll get along when they’re bored too.

And when the priority is food, not beating up the other family members, that’s a good thing!
My kitties still have occasional issues. notably, we cannot freechoice feed, as Pagan will eat all of it just to deny the others. We found her asleep with her face in the food bowl once! Now they all get their own food bowl with a measured amount of food. Eat your own, but not the others. I supervise….
