What is it about super glue?

Post by DJF on Thu Dec 12, 2013 9:54 am

I had a rag encrusted with old super glue lying around after a botched repair job. The girls got hold of it and went nuts arguing over the cloth and chewing on the hard bits.

They only had it for a few minutes so they are not going to die but what is it about super glue? Are my lot just bonkers or do rats generally like glue?

Probably because you are sensible enough not to be leaving such stuff lying around! Or it is confirmed, my rats are nutcases!

Oh the dreaded fabric chewer. I definitely have one and possibly five. The sofa has a hole I have strategically been hiding with cushions from the OH for weeks now. Problem is, the cushion covers all have holes too!
