30 Day Superhero Challenge - Day 15 - A Superpet
This was the day I realised I shot myself in the foot by not doing more proper cape'n'cowl types. But Day 5, the Chemist, my “elemental” hero, saved me.
The Chemist thought her lab rat’s name was Betty. After an incident with some irradiated fluid, “Betty” informed her that her name is in fact Heck, and that her newly sprouted twin sister is called Bolster. These are common names in rat families. So, a two-headed, radioactive rat who can communicate psychically with her owner, fiercely loyal, exceedingly smart, and an excellent strategic thinker, I give you Heck and Bolster.
It is actually a SuperPet Chinchilla Dust Bath House, but I got rid of the dust and it became a nesting box! The ferrets (especially my deaf one) love it. We have shredded paper and wool in it now, and it has latches on the back so we have it hanging in the cage. Its their little hidyhole! And, they have all managed to fit inside at once, even though it’s meant for 1 Chinchilla.
Currently we have a SuperPet Deluxe Ferret Cage. We had midnight escapades a few evenings ago because rats are clever enough to find the single-bar opening between the wire mesh (¼" inch horizontal and vertical wires) and the water bottle (which was quickly fixed). With even an inch of space, the girlies managed to get out. They had a safe return though. It was an eye-opener at just how incredible rats are at escaping!
Today I bought more aspen bedding and cleaned up the space a bit. I also bought a Veggie-Skewer to put in some treats. I arranged the top of their cage to account for the veggie skewer. I ordered a cube hammock from the-pack-rat, as well. This is en route.
Once the two new girls arrive– and after the long introduction process– I will be arranging the cage to remove the top layer. I believe that the hammock and climbing tree/ toys should be enough. With that, they still have the bottom pan and two layers to move around. They love climbing, and there is so little space to do that because of the three layers. Perhaps I should keep this third layer in? I am not sure. (Suggestions welcome!)
I am incredibly excited to sit at my computer and watch the girls explore their updated territory. It is not radically different, but the chance for treats increased, and they are going to town on the hanging apple. They are incredibly rambunctious! I’m in love!
Superpet Smellin' Good Small Animal Fragrance Spray?
I picked up my new girls yesterday, and the previous owner gave me all sorts of supplies (Oxbow, extra fleece, hammocks, hideaways, etc) but she also gave me this pet spray that smells a bit like baby powder. She applied it to them every week or two, by rubbing a single spray onto her hands and then petting them/rubbing them down.
It smells rather nice, and it keeps them from stinking at all, but I want to be sure this is safe before continuing use. I know it says it is, but sometimes pet products contain things that aren’t that good for your pets, and since rats are prone to respiratory problems, I don’t want to harm them by using this fragrance stuff.
Come see us today at the Irvine Animal Care Center’s Super Pet Adoption event. Our booth is between the two dog buildings. There are a lot of pets looking for their forever homes. Come on down and adopt! #dogs #cats #adoption #superpet #petadoption #adoptdontshop
So a lot of people use SuperPet kabobs to put veggies and stuff on, but I hate the constant bell ringing so I pretty much never do it. Instead I went to Fauna NYC and found stuff I could put on it! So right now, we’ve got vine rings, vine stars, paper tubes, and some wood chews. The girls are exploring it now but Mishka, my naughtiest pig is pretty enamored with the paper tube chew :)
