Happy Valentines day!

Published by under Ukategorisert

I found these fluffbunnies snuggled up on my bed today. Even rats know how to celebrate the most romantic day of the year! The way Gunnars pink little toes curl up like that just melts my heart…so cute!

I didn’t get any flowers today, but I did get a 750 gram bag of Earl Grey tea and mint chocolates that were waaayy to sweet for me. Did I mention that Mr. T loves tea ? Hmm…what a coincidence that he got me more tea than I can ever drink in a lifetime.. oh well, I’m positive he’ll make it up to me as soon as we’re done with the student life and actually have paying jobs!

Students or not, we DID treat ourselves to a special dinner – HOMEMADE SUSHI! I adore sushi and I could eat it every day for the rest of my life. Okay, that would become boring, but once a week – no problem.

- in his current favorite hang out spot – my book shelf! My lovely emo rat, grumpy towards the other rats, and happy when left alone in my bedrom, has chosen the Munchkin card game box as his place to be. He’ll sleep on that box for hours, and socks that I offer him to make a softer bed get pushed away with an indignant air.

Gunnar & Fredrik

I’m spending a couple of weeks at the cabin/summer place of Tore’s parents in Mandal, down at the very south of Norway. In the meanwhile our two boys visit their «grandparents», and I miss them immensely! Here’s some more pictures (check out the photostream for even more).

Back to blogging…Part II

Published by under Fredrik&Gunnar

..So we decided to get new rats.  Two boys of about 4 months of age that we bought cheaply of a guy that didn’t have enough time to take care of them. They will never completely replace Sam, but having rats in the house again helps. Even though they all have their distinct and unique personalities, they have some of that common rattiness, that is so charming and adorable. I still miss Sam every day, but little Gunnar and Fredrik help to cheer me up.

Fredrik & Gunnar

Fredrik, the husky, on the left, Gunnar, the black berkshire, on the right. In the beginning they were quite timid of humans and they hated being picked up. Now they’ve become very trusting little guys, they hardly tense a muscle when I pick them up and they seem genuinely interested in hanging out with me and Tore. They even give little rattiekisses! I almost cried the first time little Gunnar started licking my chin, it reminded me so much of Sam. This pictures says a lot about rats: I’ve placed a three cardboard boxes on top of the cage for the rats to play in. Of course the thin, oblong one became a favourite (it used to contain a whisky bottle) – which they sometimes fight over, other times they both cram themselves in there, until the box is bulging on each side.
