Furkid Friday: a very rodent Christmas 2015 (FD)

Hi humans, rodent types, and anyone else reading this. This is Jenks the degu.

Well... That Santa Paws may be too sneaky for us to catch, but I tell you what... He sure delivers! Look at all the great nibbles he left for me, my degu brothers, our gerbil brothers, and our ratty sisters:

Here are close up shots of some of the stuff:

Obviously that's all of our stuff put together, and some of it's for us degus, some of it's for our gerbil brothers, and some of it's for our ratty sisters. It's a great haul though, don't you think?

My ratty sister, Star, certainly liked the cranberry tree treat Santa Paws left for my ratty sisters to share...

...So did Skye, when Star let her have some of it. There's no photo of her though - either with or without a treat - since she was feeling shy that day, and hid whenever the flashy thing was pointed in the direction of the rat cage, which isn't all that unusual for Skye, who has always been a shy little rat.

Anyway, we degus loved our carrot and dandelion treats so much we wouldn't let the human caretakers take the time to hang them up on the sides of our cage, but instead just grabbed them and started munching...

...Lucky Santa Paws left four of those things. Does that guy know us, or what? Since we insisted on grabbing a treat each, the humans had to remove the plastic clips from the top of them when we'd let go of the treats for long enough, since we wouldn't let them be used to hang the treats up, and the humans didn't want to risk us eating them.

Yes, I know there are four degus, but only two photographed here... Two of us were hiding with our nibbles, and wouldn't come out while the flashy thing was around. We weren't the only ones...

Our gerbil brothers loved their berry drop treats too, but were reluctant to be seen eating them in a photo. In fact, Baggins didn't even want a photo taken of him. Bilbo was willing to allow Christmas photos to be taken of him, just not ones where he was obviously enjoying a nibble... Even if he wasn't far from the food bowl...

In short, we rodents loved our nibbles from Santa Paws, and all agree that he's welcome to come again whenever he wants. He doesn't even need to wait until next Christmas... Really!

Squeak soon,
