Hi, Everyone!

Yes, you read right - my great big hoodie, Augustus, turns one at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve!

Of course, we're not celebrating "New Year's Eve" here...we're celebrating "Countdown until Gus turns one!" :D

I'll hopefully be following this up with some pictures of the event, but right now, a few of us are trying to instill a new movement, for as long as Gus continues having birthdays: we're saying the countdown like this. "10...9...8...7...6...5...4...3...2...1...HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GUS!"

We would love to have you join in on the birth of this tradition...and what better time for it than 2008, The Year Of The Rat? No matter what time zone you're in, just shout, "Happy Birthday, Gus" after the countdown! :D He would be really honored, so be sure to let us know if you did it.

Either way, please send him your love, and best wishes for a long and healthy rat life. He's my big, lovey boy, and he deserves the best!

On an unusual note, when Gus turns one year, Boo (his little brother) turns six months! :lol: Obviously, they're not blood brothers. But we'll celebrate his birthday in another six months.

Happy New Year, Everyone!

Awww that's too cute. Happy birthday Gus! (for tomorrow)

I have 3 rats turning 2 this January. I didn't know how to celebrate - So I think I might go out tomorrow and buy some mini choc-chip muffins for them as a NAUGHTY birthday treat. XD

I hope Gus has got lots of lovely treats and pressies coming!

Thanks so much! We are already partying, playing with a new plush "octopus," which lets you climb in the mouth for a nest, and down the arms for tunnels! :D
