Step Into Christmas!


This week has been hectic!

With one thing or another, I just haven't had the time to sit down and blog unfortunately! I don't normally schedule things, so it all sort of fell apart! But anyway, here's a little catch up...

Pebbles (my dumbo rat) has been a little poorly this week & she has been my main concern. After a quick trip to the vets it seems she just has a little rattie cold and needs some antibiotics - phew! - which I managed to sneak into her morning yoghurt today! So hopefully she'll be on the mend from now on.

In other pet news, Herbert is going to be a daddy! We pretty much had it confirmed a while back that Maeby (his lady friend) has put on 50g in a week, and she only weighs 300g in total, so that is a positive sign! Hedgehogs are pregnant for around 35 days... So fingers crossed for some new year mini Herbs!
I wish that picture of Herbert was sharper, but I just couldn't leave it out. Parcel bed from Fuzzbutt.

We also put the trees up - a big Nordman fir in the hall and a tiny Nordman in the lounge (can't beat the smell of a real Christmas tree!) so those have been helping with the festive spirit. Plus, I've just about finished buying gifts for everyone, so now it's all about the wrapping - my favourite part! No, really.

Oh! And we bought some hedgehog & rattie baubles... Yes, we are those kinds of people.
And that's about everything! I realise the majority of these photos aren't 'technically' brilliant, but y'know, it is very hard to capture wriggly little critters!

Anyway, I'll leave you with one of my faaaavourite Christmas songs, just in case you still aren't feeling the Christmas spirit yet!

How is your Christmas prep going?

  2. Awwwwwww!! I miss having pet rats, but having two cats makes it a bit difficult these days (sad face). At least I can live my rattie love through your pictures though!

    And HUGE congrats to Herbert too! First time - he doesn't mess around, eh?

    1. Aw thank you! So hard to get a picture of them. They're so nosey & end up centimetres away from the lens hehe! X

  4. Next time someone says that rats are OK to be tested on, I'm referring them to this photo of Herbert. Such an adorable little creature

    1. Oh definitely! The rat is pebbles :) Herbert is the hoglet hehe.

      So sad to think they test on such loving, intelligent animals. They're like small dogs! X

  7. Awwww look at Pebbles! It's so hard for me to get pictures of Rolo/Whiskers because they end up so close to the camera and think it's a chew toy...

    Herbert's little bed is so cute, I went to order one last night but they're restocking over Christmas :( I love your ornaments on the tree! xx
