I took a vacation day today so this morning I let Jada out of her cage and went and had some breakfast. When I came back both rats were in the nesting box together and appeared to be sleeping, and I thought "how sweet - I'll get the camera!" When I stuck the camera - poor Jada was being the victim of some serious bullying I think. Mrs Dingle seems to be taking the upper hand in this relationship so far. Although I did notice tonight that Mrs Dingle's got a big lump on her neck which I'm hoping is from a nip from Jada - rather from a fast growing cancer - because it wasn't there yesterday and it's a pretty big lump. But there does appear to be a red spot there too - so hopefully it's from a nip.
I really didn't think Mrs Dingle was going to have so much hootzpah. She's a firecracker, that's for sure. But I'm sure that they'll be in love within a very short amount of time.
Mrs Dingle has found a new pillow to lay on...
I'm not sure what Jada thinks about it!
But she can't mind too much! Hopefully tomorrow she'll be the one on top!
