A tangent…a Ratgent? Two new rats have joined Esme & Rubin since Chas died, Havelock & Sam (named for Havelock Vetinari and Sam Vimes.) I have a couple new pics of them. They are doing really well, adjusting nicely to being free range studio rats and Esme and Rubin have been absolutely wonderful and accepting of them both. Sam is still on the spooky side, but he has stopped distress crying when being petted and he’s quite the foodie. Havelock has a calm and inquisitive nature. He and Esme are remaining a bit of an item, they still sleep together every day, however, Havelock and Sam are early risers, generally being ready to raise hell around 5-6 pm every day, while Esme and Rubin are loathe to wake before 10 pm. Tsk and all that. :D All and all, very happy additions to The Chemical Crew. Edited to add: NO SQUEAKING! is the new battle cry in the studio. Sometimes, boys are a right pain in the arse.
