Life Lately

Things that make me happy? These guys.

It has been a hot minute since I last blogged, but truth be told I haven't had the time or the 'want' to do so (shock, horror). I have barely been out of my pjs and/or stopped working (a good thing for our family business, I guess!) so taking snaps of myself or products has been out of the question. Oh, how I envy those who's full time job is blogging!

Anyway, I managed to get a few little pictures of my super cute tribe of animals today and as my life has mainly been with them lately, it seemed fitting to upload them here! 
Herbert (the hedgehog) is now a 'dad', last time I wrote about him I think he was about to 'do the deed', so, yes, it worked! He is the father to two little hoglets; one chocolate coloured boy & one albino boy, there was a third one but unfortunately I found out today the runt of the litter; an albino girl, sadly passed away yesterday. It came as quite a shock, but we're going to meet 'Humphrey' the chocolate hoglet tonight for the first time, which I'm really excited about! His brother, the albino, went to a new home yesterday, in place of the little girl.
The ratties are as nuts as ever, and still continue to make me laugh, without fail, every day. It's a shame that people screw their noses up at them as a pet as they're the most interactive, intelligent, loving little animals I've ever come across. They literally bounce up and down when they see you & seem so happy to be with a human! Their tails are actually soft too, and they are constantly cleaning themselves - I think people instantly think 'wild rat' when they hear that word, but actually they couldn't be more wrong...

I could ramble some more, but I wont! 

What have you been up to lately?

I used to have cats but we don't have any pets right now and there's massize hole in my heart for some furry friends. These pictures however just take the biscuit, I just AWWWWWED at my parents for about five minutes. These lil ones are SO CUTE!!
