The babies are doing really well, very well socialised and learning to jump for the edge of the playpen. It’s becoming more and more difficult to contain them during playtime, but I don’t think they’d be safe out in the big wide rat room world just yet. I’m trying to decide which ones I should keep, but struggling a little. I’m keeping four boys, but it looks like I’ll be keeping eight girls because I only have two pet homes on my waiting list for the girls, for a trio and a pair. As there are five Russian blues, that means I’ll be keeping at least three of them. Confusion ahead.
