So, after much consideration, Nick and I have decided to keep the rat. Miss Minelli is our first pet together and I'm hoping it goes much more smoothly then keeping her at the Boys And Girls Club. Anyhoo, I researched proper rat care and found out some intresting things. Such as she should be eating meat in her diet. So much for my children being vegetarian. I also learned she should be getting exercise in her cage everyday. She could develop fatty tumors if she doesn't. So, I bought her a huge wheel she could run around the apartment in. And then she pooped herself in it. So much for that idea. She also didn't like the toys we bought her. The only thing she truly likes, is Nick holding her. I rescue her and he gets all the credit. Figures.
