*heart* I do love a rat!
Lister looks like my baby Louis when he was a kit.
And Rimmer is a darling; he looks like our boy Russel!
Rats are even more exciting when you have 7 boisterous boys running round the bed.
I do keep madagascan hissing cockroaches. I wouldn't say theyre hard to kill but one of ours escaped and lived without food or water for several weeks in my other halfs first aid course folder. He is now named St John.
And he is fit and well.
