It seems 5 was too young to introduce pocket pets to the kiddos. They enjoy the ratties, as long as they don't have to touch them, the kids can not handle the rats nails...and they don't really like it when the boys crawl on them either. Which means the rats are not getting the daily hands on attention they deserve. So we have decided, reluctantly, to give the boys to a friend of mine who has two of their sisters. She had the girls spayed and has a huge cage that they all can live in together, she has the time to play with them every day and will take amazing care of the boys. The triplets, especially Hayden and Lily, are really sad...but I am trying to help them understand that in life you try to do what is best...even when it is not what is easy. I have also told them when they are older and more ready to take on a small pet of their own we will try again...I'm thinking when they are 9 LOL.
Hiccup, Remy, Star and Bumblebee down below...they will be leaving us on Saturday.
Star...Haddie's rat, I think I will miss him the most...he is the sweetest of the bunch.
Hiccup, Xan picked out for Jericho...he has become the biggest...and a little bit of a Bully to his brothers. Xander's boy, Bumblebee, is still the shyest of the group.
And then there is Lily's boy, Remy, he is another sweet one. I think we will all miss Star and Remy the most. They have gotten so big over the last 5 months that we have had them.
Photo challenge today...Day 17. Tree.
