Mocha’s Before and After photos. XD

EDIT: Thanks for all the well wishes everyone! You’re great. :)

Vets~

Took Mocha and Blackberry to the vets today. Mocha is apparently healthy, and has gone from 80g to 100g! She is a round ball of round and it’s super weird because she was like 30g lighter when I got her.

Blackberry, however, has lost 14g, so is now 87g. :( Apparently 101g is not fat like I thought it was, and he is now only 7g above the lowest he should be, so this is not good. The vet suspects a chest infection and gave him a steroid injection as well as a course of Baytril to take. If it doesn’t work, I will have to have him x-rayed to find out what the problem is and we may try a different antibiotic possibly. Fingers crossed it will work, vet said it was unlikely that Blackberry could have something resistant to Baytril.

In case anyone is interested in cost, it came to just over £28, making it one of the more expensive appointments I’ve had for these two so far. Though it’s heavily dependent on area - in the town I used to live in, I’m certain it would have cost more. Thank goodness I moved I guess. XD

I tried to give them a treat of organic sweet potato baby food, but… they were mostly unimpressed. They are the pickiest rats ever!

Oh, hello there!Tallulah, the youngest and most loved*

your ask is closed… I was wondering why you are cohabiting a rat and mouse? It is very likely that one day the rat will kill and eat the mouse because rats are omnivorous in the wild and often eat wild mice. It might not happen now, or I guess ever but the risk is definitely there and it has happened many many times before so I would strongly recommend that you separate them as soon as you possibly can

I’m not 100% sure that’s a mouse. I could be a baby rat and a very large adult? Without a better picture of the little one I can’t quite tell. But yes, assuming it is a mouse (which I’m leaning toward), PLEASE SEPARATE THEM. You do NOT want to learn the hard way that rats can and WILL eat mice.
You love rats, you love mice, okay, great! But enjoy each separately.

It was tagged with mouse and there are other pictures of mice on their blog, even another with two mice and a rat.
