Lol! I thought there was something very un-rat-like about those ears. It's just the size of the mouse/box that threw me off, sorry!! Like I said, very limited experience, sorry.

I had no idea they came in brindle! How do you get a pied brindle?

My gene knowledge is rusty at best, but brindle is dominant if memory serves, and pied/broken/etc is also dominant.

Brindle is the only color linked to obesity in adulthood, so hopefully we'll figure out a good way to combat that as he ages. Rick (who was previously kind of scared of mice), is enamored with him... I imagine he'll spend many, many hours hanging out in bed with us.

That is really fascinating. I really need to get back into rats and mice and genetics. Fish, too.

I wonder why brindle is linked to obesity? Quite interesting! I've got some stuff to read up on now I hope you and Rick enjoy Bane! He is such a cute little mouse

First - I LOVE living here so far. People here just seem to be....better lol.

Second - I have a sort of job. It's a one day thing working for Humane Society International. I get to dress up in a rabbit costume and carry a sign with "#CrueltyFree" on it and pose for pictures for $15/hr. I don't know much about the organization but they don't seem as totally out there as HSUS or PETA so... Eh should be a cool experience either way.


As long as I don't have to throw paint on people or be vocal I'm good

Got a text today that my car is off the boat and on a truck heading this way. I told my coworkers that today might be the last day they see Dori since I have my husband's car tomorrow. I will be beyond happy to move onto a different car and not feel stuck at home, or that I can't go anywhere too far because my car might not start back up.

Had an awesome day at the beach today. Abrams was SO excited to head to the water, had he not been wearing his prong I would have been pulled over. Lol We were able to find a spot that actually got deep, and he was able to swim, too!

Another guy was out with his dog and he stopped by to let the dogs play. Pretty little cattle dog mix thing. He was new to the area, too, and we're going to attempt to meet up again for more play dates on the beach! Cynder was so excited to have a dog her size to play with.

Cynder waded out into the water, too, without us encouraging her! That was a first in her life, I think.

Good breakfast, good morning out, good lunch, and now relaxing. Good, good day. It's also weird having Michael around so much. He's been off of work since Thursday afternoon. I don't think we've spent this much unintenterupetted time together since summer of last year. It's been nice.
