Hi there, Roscoe here.
Well, we’ve been eating these pellets for over a week now, and we’re all okay with them. They’re not perfect, but you kinda get used to them. I reckon in a week or two I’ll be saying they’re right tasty.
Update on our weights: Bertie is about the same. Biggles went up 10 grams and down twenty grams. That could be just that he’s wee’d or not. I’ve done much the same. Saturday I was up 10 grams, but Mam says I’m doing okay really. Neville’s a little star, he put on 20 grams the first week and lost 40 this week.
What I notice about Neville is he’s much keener to poke his nose into stuff and find tasty things to eat. He used to just laze around and eat what was in front of him. He even stood up against the cage side the other day when it was cucumber time. Mam is real pleased with him being more mobile, but she doesn’t hear him moan that he’s starving. He’s desperate for that cucumber!
I think the ready-grass is helping because it changes what we think of as food. Mam’s putting it in our bowls, and it’s really difficult to have an empty bowl when you’ve got bits of grass in it. We have managed to lick them clean on a couple of days though. But we’ve always got lots of hay, so we can eat that, and play in it, and hide in it, and that keeps us from feeling hungry.
Mam says she’s doing well on her own diet some days, and not so good on others. But she’s doing her best, and she’s been doing more exercise too. I think she does a lot of moving around to some special music she puts on every evening. Maybe we should have some music to move around to, too, Mam.
At least we’re all suffering together.
See you next time
