    Does anyone have experience with an aging rat losing his ability to walk and move around?

    How old is your rat? Hind end degeneration is very very common in older male rats and he can for sure live with it if he adjusts well and you…

    One of my rats Baloo lived with hind end degeneration and still had high quality of life for over 6 months I would say, maybe even a year. As long as they are eating/drinking/acting normal like noodlebutts is saying just adjust the cage so it’s user-friendly for them. 

    With the penis-plug thing I would recommend checking him daily if you are not sure if he’s grooming, it’s best to check and clean it. I will warn you, it smells pretty awful if there is a plug.

    This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.

    That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.

    This is why we download. 

    Spreading this shit like nutella because goddamn textbooks are so expensive.

    Now that the otters are on enclosure I’m going to try and get pics of them and two baby red pandas were born in July and were finally announced so now I can talk about them.

    And I like the zoo.

    MY ASUS IS ALIVE

    I think i wrote about how back in March my Asus died and it was pretty much new and would have been super expensive to fix the motherboard…I was moving stuff and went to show Nick the damage to it and the dent was gone and then he turned it on and it works!

    …..they fixed it without telling me? Or it was a mistake..either way, pretty happy.
