Carrot nibble stick and chicken bone

Carrot nibble stick and chicken bone

 
Watch Ronnie and Derek enjoying a carrot nibble stick and the remains of a chicken bone.

The carrot nibble stick was bought from Tesco and they enjoy it a lot. The packaging says it should be an occasional treat despite coming with a plastic hook to hang it with, so I hang it in their cage just for short periods. Ronnie and Derek also have a honey nibble stick, bought from Carrefour during a Calais day trip, which permanently hangs in their cage as they’re not massively keen and so only nibble on it occasionally.

Mint plant

Mint plant

 
Rats enjoy eating herbs and I bought a mint plant which Ronnie and Derek were interested to explore. Ronnie ate some mint but wasn’t very impressed, but Derek loves it and had a good time searching through the leaves and picking some to eat. Watch the videos and photos below!

Rabbit Pie

Ronnie and Derek enjoyed investigating a ‘rabbit pie’ ornament. They probably think it’d be a tasty pie, but are having second thoughts now they’ve seen the rabbit popping out!

Concrete in the cage to assist nails

Concrete in the cage to assist nails

 
Some small pieces of concrete and a brick have been added to Ronnie and Derek’s cage, in places where they walk the most, to help wear down their nails (see images below – click to enlarge). Using something like sandpaper as a floor covering for this is not suitable as the rats could graze their feet and get infections.
