@  Heather : (23 November 2014 - 04:46 PM) That must be awful to have barron screaming constantly :-(. Is it high or low pitched? We have sofa drapes that we created into curtains for around LPs cage (instead of a cage cover during the night). If LP screams we shut the curtains, almost immediately she stops, says 'hello' in the cutest voice ever and the curtains are opened again. Works really well!
@  Heather : (23 November 2014 - 04:43 PM) Thanks everyone. <3. I hope she pulls through until the anti tumour arrive. Until her stitches are better im keeping her separate from our other two rats so i habe her with me 24hours a day - on the table when i eat, beside the bed when i sleep. Obviously in her cage when LP is out but rest of day im in bed so she has a warm buddy to sleep beside.
@  divegirl : (23 November 2014 - 04:40 PM) Hormones? Seems to be the answer with most things parroty lol
@  Lolastick : (23 November 2014 - 04:37 PM) Sorry for the bad news:( I don't n kW why barron is screaming constantly. Did this when we first got him.
@  divegirl : (23 November 2014 - 04:26 PM) Oh Heather :( Lots of gentle hugs and healing thoughts for Brioche :rose:
@  Lou : (23 November 2014 - 04:18 PM) i wondered where you had been, im so sorry hun, fingers crossed these new meds have an affect, you know we are all here for you, she is such a fighter though hun, hugs to you and Brioche xxx
@  Heather : (23 November 2014 - 04:15 PM) Brioche had her ninth tumour removed this week, vets ordered us some new concentrated med thats meant to stop the tumours. Im in bed with my Brioche keeping her warm while shes recovering. Im really struggling atm, i love this little rat so much ;-(
@  Lou : (23 November 2014 - 04:13 PM) poor you Lolastick i know how bad that can be, wonder whats triggered that?
@  Lou : (23 November 2014 - 04:13 PM) Hey Heather how you doin? how's Brioche doing? and has that lil girl got a name yet? hope your well :)
@  Heather : (23 November 2014 - 04:09 PM) Whys he screaming nonstop?
@  Lolastick : (23 November 2014 - 03:54 PM) No:( was trying to play with him and he was just screaming at me. Didn't eat anything till 3pm:(
@  divegirl : (23 November 2014 - 03:23 PM) :( That's not good hun, is nothing distracting him from it?
@  Lolastick : (23 November 2014 - 03:04 PM) Been such a bad day, Barron's done nothing but scream madly all day!
@  DizzyBlue : (23 November 2014 - 02:11 PM) oh hum will just have to try out the four bird roast idea instead
@  DizzyBlue : (23 November 2014 - 02:11 PM) what no recipies for me to try out :(

Really lucky LP hasnt given me a bad bite yet. Shes incredibly good natured, mind you she's only 1 1/2 so i'm sure it's to come.Id never ever trust her though, even now, with any of our other pets. Am sure she'd take a chunk out of them.
