    one question

    My three youngest rats love to nibble my finger nails too. They are forever trying to groom me, lol.

    Awww there lovely A R 3.
    Yes your husky will roan out a lot more, my husky is completely White now all but a dirty looking patch just between his shoulders.

    And mine especially Percy loves to groom my fingers and often nibbles my nails but sometimes it hurts if he gets too carried away!

    How are they coming along?
    How are you finding them?

    There are getting along very well
    Tufty now (Almost) comes when I call and Flo is getting the jist of it!
    Glad to know my rats aren't the only ones who like to chew nails :D
    Flo tried to chew my foot the other day that was painful!!
    I'm finding everything about them great they now meet me at the cage
    Apart from cleaning them out is a bit of a hassle but I know it must be done then again I mustn't complain as I know people on here have much more than one cage to clean

    Wait until they start trying to groom your hair, lol. That's worse than fingernail nibbling.

    Mine love playing with my hair and sniffing my ears and face. They haven't tried to groom my fingers yet though.

    Only in your ear? You're lucky.
    Molly was quite happily sitting in my scarf today and out of nowhere decided it was perfectly acceptable to sit bolt upright, slam her face in my mouth and her nose up my nose and sit there for about 30 seconds before I decided I need to breathe to live.
    Strange creatures.....
    Cute ratties though!
