Things That Gregor Or Augustus Have Taught Me:

* Quality food is very important to a good life.

* Things don't have to be expensive to be fun or interesting.

* It doesn't matter if your bed is made...it feels better just to have a pile of foam, pillows, and blankets.

* It's always a good time for a nap.

* It's always a good time to play.

* It's always a good time to be pet - especially a skritch behind the ears.

* Have an "organization system," even if you are the only one who understands it.

* Save EVERYTHING! You'll never know when you might need it!

* If you want to give someone the ULTIMATE present, get them a bottle of the same perfume you wear, so that you can smell exactly alike.

* Chew your food carefully. You'll taste it more, and enjoy it better.

* Groom frequently.

* If a house is messy, it is "lived in." Those houses that look like museums are only in magazines. Throw some paper and cotton around. Make it look like somebody lives here.

* Maintain your teeth several times daily.

* There's no reason in the world why you can't have two, three, or four beds around the house.

* If you see a sign that says, "Keep Out," there's probably something really fun and interesting in there.

* If you should become aware that someone is moving about the house, pay attention! They could be up to something good, like bringing you food or a present.

* If you show that you REALLY love something that someone gives you, you are more likely to get more gifts.

* A lot of things are toys, if you know how to use them right.

* Wonderful things come in small packages.

------------------------------------

Do you have things to add to the list? I can't wait to read them!

What Acid has taught me:

--Being easily excitable is cute

--Never trust a female on a tall object

--Never let your dog in, the rat WILL kick some stinky dog butt

--when mom gives you a red grape, leave the peel laying in a goey mass in a corner, sit back, and watch as your mom frantically srearches each rat for a missing mass of skin


What Ed has taught me:

--Get out

--I bite


What Jake has taught me:

--Boy rats have dignity, too(meaning for mom to stop showing off a boy rat's giant torpedoes)

--Don't try to catch me when I'm under the cage, you will lose

--Don't let me roam on the kitchen counter(read the story here: http://ratforum.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=469.html )


What Meromi has taught me:

--Manipulate, manipulate, manipulate

--Cuteness is a VERY good tool of manipulation

--Red-eyed rats are CLUMSY

things that my "kids" taught me (hamsters and rats):

-your never too old to have a fresh start

-you dont need a tooth brush if u have a hamster that loves to eat

-its ok to be chubby, it means that you are loved and get lots of treats

-always tell the people you love that you love them before going anywhere (even to bed) because you dont know if you'll ever see them again

-always make time for some cuddling, it's what'll keep u smiling through the tears later

being attached at the shoulder is better than attached at the hip, then you can get kisseees at all times

always sniff EVERYTHING you can, you never know what good smells are untill you do

love is important, and so is listening and just being there

there are tremendous hearts that dwell in furry bodies

if i actually bite you, you deserved it because theres a good reason and you should go think about what you did

you werent gonna eat what i stole off your plate anyway

i love you mummy, so i deserve lots of treats

you dont need to try to train me, i already know what you want and i will do it when i want to

its always a good time for a treat

if you are sad i will cheer you up...just play with me and i'll make it all better

bandaids are not part of you and should be picked off....the same goes with anything that that doesn't smell like you

clothes dont need washed, just chew off the dirty parts...and as for the smell....i like it, its the smell of love

if you give mommy the "can i just sit on you and be loved" face, she'll take you out and as soon as she sits down you can dive into the recliner and play the "lets freak mommy out by being in the rusty, dusty, dirty, dangerous, fun place" game

if its too hot just roll on your back and open your legs.....everyone loves to see sweaty rat nuts

if u poo in your water dish mum will change it and bring you a treat

if you stash all your food mum will think you ate it all and fill up the dish again, and bring u a treat

if you look at mum the right way she'll bring you a treat

nothing is as good as a nice looooooong scritch....unless its a niiiice looooong scritch, and then a treat

the tail less human rats are easily manipulated by their little furries

-Slippers are yummy

-Bring EVERYTING back to your "spot." If it can't be eaten, sleep on it.

-Anything that can't be brought back to the "spot" should be hidden somewhere else.

-Rearrange anything you don't like

-Hoarding food is okay as long as someone cleans it out every day or so.

-Holes are fashion statements in clothing

-Sharing food makes everyone happy

-Pee is a sensible scent on everything

-the further in the wardrobe/bookcase/cupboard/laundry pile/sofa you hide, the longer it'll take people to find you

a lesson learnt the hard way :)

No matter what it is, it isn't worth interrupting a meal or nap for it.
