I have strep throat so I havent really given my rats much play time so they are looking at me through the bars all playful yet sad at the same time. But I dont want them getting sick so I am holding back to just closet time while im cleaning there cage.

oh yeah, I rather get a shot (Which I absolutly HATE needles!) over strep Anytime. Not even a shot, I rather have a broken body part then strep. I just cant stand the pain I guess.


(my doctor has wanted to cut out my tonsales for years because they are big. and when I get sick they are huge so it is harder to breathe.)

Rats don't catch strep throat, they can catch strep pneumonia. You can take them out,but I still wouldn't advise kissing them :roll:

thanks. Sore throats are the worst. And on top of a sore throat I also got a
stuffed up head and constant headaches because of that. :cry:

I am however eatin Chewable vitamin Cs like they are candy,
slurping down the day-quil(sp?) and ny-quil(sp?)...lol...
Then I am going through lots of numbing spray, and numbing gargle stuff.

It took me about 10 minutes to totaly lube up my throat last night...lol...


So yeah, Last night felt good. :lol:

Urgh, strep throat is no fun (thankfully I've never had it, but my sister has). When it comes to being sick a sore throat is the one thing I just can't stand. Hope you feel better soon.
