Toilet roll friend

Post by lmc on Thu May 17, 2012 2:55 am

Dawn has dragged a toilet roll into her bed, which she cuddles up to at night. I can't decide whether she is using it as a companion or it is to help her be even lazier than she already is and not have to get out of bed to chew something Wink At the moment it is very well treated and not at all chewed (a record for her as she ripps them up as soon as she gets them). I dont know what it is about this particular roll that makes it 'the chosen one' - she has ripped up two since adopting it, and its making me feel very guilty about having her on her own Sad Has anything like this happpened to anyone else before?

My old rat Gideon used to bring them into his bed too, but he wasn't much of chewer though. He was also on his own. Also if there was too much noise during the day he'd use it to baracade his house door as if to block out the sound. Laugh

I know of rats that have adopted bits of cage furniture as friends in the past... it's rather sweet Smile

Oh I do think it's cute - she curls up beside it and seems convinced that it's 'more than just a toilet roll'. It makes the house seem a bit more occupied after it had been looking quite empty, and I'm sure thet toilet roll will be treated very well - she hasn't even ripped off the bits of paper remaining on it Grin
