Owning rats, or as some say, being owned by rats, is a journey. For me it began with being intensely rat-phobic to where I am now, rat-obsessed (ok, i admit it).


Tired of Leaking Water Bottles?

I've been meaning to post this one for awhile. I thought I would never find a water bottle that didn't leak. I tried several different brands and then I found THE best water bottles.

We moved the rats in the car from California to Portland, Oregon and I kept the bottles in the cages during the move, which you definitely cannot do with regular bottles, and there was absolutely no leakage.

It takes the rats a little while to get used to drinking from it but it is well worth it. The nozzle is brass and the bottle is outside the cage so heavy chewers can't damage it. They can also be refilled from outside the cage which is very convenient at times (definitely when you are travelling!)

They are called Water Buddies and you can get them in various sizes. You can check out the reviews from users and order from here.

I knew there was more than one reason to love this show. First off, it somewhat makes up for the loss of Homicide: Life on the Street, one of the best t.v. shows ever made, second, it is real life, done in almost real-time and it brings home the high cost of drugs and thugs without being preachy. And then I find out that one of the Memphis detectives has two pet rats! Can't get much better than that.
