Well my Mom has been really busy. With what you ask? You will never believe this story. Its just nuts!
Last week on Thursday my brother and his friends went sailing at the lake where my Mom and Dad take me. See picture above for the view(-:
Anyhow... when my brother got to the lake and unloaded his sail boat he found a baby rat laying (or is that lying? Forgive me I forget) on the boat trailer! He said the rest of the family must have fallen off on the ride to the lake! How tragic right? Well you know if I was there, there would be no rats left(-: Anyhow, my brother has a soft heart...kinda gets that from my Mom!
He felt bad for the little baby and took it over to the grass and laid it down. Then he and his friends went sailing for the afternoon. I guess he didn't feel that sorry...(-:
When he arrived back at the boat dock he checked on the baby rat. Guess what? It was still alive! Amazing huh? Of course I wasn't there to help with that part! So my brother decided it should come home and see what we could do to help it. Ha! I am laughing at this point in the story! Of course I would love to "help!"
My brother didn't have that kind of help in mind. How rude.)-: He asked my Mom to help with it! Can you believe it? What did they do you ask? Well they fixed some formula up and fed it with a syringe minus the needle of course! My mom keeps all this on hand just in case she has to take care of an orphan. It happens more then you think! I at this point still can't believe I am watching this happening. Me...the rat terrorist! I am really unhappy sitting next to my mom watching her feed this little baby RAT! Geez Mom what are you thinking? It needs to be fed every 3 hours? Are you kidding me? What about me? So anyhow you get the story. Mom is busy taking care of a rat. Oh you want to see it? Well your in luck cuz Dad snapped a picture for proof! Can you see me licking my chops? Well, no cuz Dad didn't take MY picture)-:
We did however get to go to the lake on Saturday. It was very nice and no RATS to look at all day! My brother had to take care of the rat(-: It was of course there when we got home and my sister even bought it a new little rat cage to live in! Can you believe it? We have to keep it? Oh...and Mom said to tell you its doing really good and its eyes opened yesterday! Yay now it can see me licking my chops!!!!
