It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must also know how to fall

Nope they rarely like to leave their cage at all, I think international travel might be a bit much for my few ounce beauties.

Yeah, I understand. They sure are friendly little buggers, aren't they?!

Oh yes, they like to sit and stare at you if you don't pay them attention. And they like to try to fight the cats through the bars of the cage. They also like to stick their little hands out of the bars and grab at you as you walk by, they would try to grab the cats when they were babies.

Hehe...Sounds just like mine. They will try and play with our Chihuahua...but he'll get scared and run away.
Out of curiosity, what do yours like for treats? We've discovered that Heidi and Aero will eat almost anything(except citrus of course, bad for their respiratory systems I've heard), anything from pretzels, to fish, to ham, to chocolate, to peanut butter. They've even stolen dog biscuits from the Chihuahua!!

Mine are on a pretty strict diet, mainly lab blocks. But they are in absolute love with Strawberry Banana Yougies and mashed sweet potato. Other than that and fruit, veggies, and the very occasional piece of meat, they rarely get "human food". Might sound mean, but it is how I am with all of my pets, my horse gets no sweet feed, cats get no human food either, I am kind of a health nut with my pets...

I used to until my dog died of heart disease and onion poisoning(liver failure) from eating too many table scraps and human food, it was a big eye opener. Its ok though, since they don't get a lot of it, they get reallly excited when they do get some!

Yeah...that's what I fear for our 12 year old Chihuahua. >.< He gets given wayyy too much human food by my mom and brother.
With the rats though, I've read up on how certain foods can be good for them in small quantities. These are my second pair of rats, so I've learned from experience what to and not to give them. Heidi is getting a little bit chubby, so we're having to cut way back on the extra stuff, cause she's not eating as much of her rat food as she should. The only times they get a whole bunch of stuff is if they are being trouble makers and get out of the cage when it's open and take advantage of food being nearby.(I've had brownie chunks and bananas and peanut butter crackers stolen by them...OOPS.).

HEHE, I am lucky that mine hate to leave their cage.

Of course they will let me and Joe pick them up and take them out, but I used to leave the cage door open all of the time and they would just stand in it and look out.

I take them out and play with as often as I can, but they only truly seem happy if they are in their cage.

They are weird little ones, they go nutty if you change anything in it, they have it just how they like it, so they throw a fit when I clean it, they will climb around on the bars for a few hours trying to figure out what has been moved... *sigh* silly little girls lol.
