Confession: this is not my original idea. I stole it from Anne’s Rat Page. But it’s such a perfect photo op that anyone with rats and a camera is bound to try it sooner or later. My version was originally posted in the Cuteness forum of the RMCA.
Nelly: It’s mine! All mine!
Let’s see how this thing works...
Zuzu and Cinnamon: Is something happening in the Big Cage? Why didn’t anyone tell us?
Booboo: ’Twas hers, ’tis mine!
Eggs should be eaten on the top floor of the cage.
A moment of shared bliss...
Uh-oh. Shouldn’t have blinked, Booboo.
Nelly: Nobody will ever think of looking for it here!
Cinnamon: Who’s that other rat sneaking looks at my prize?
Closing in for the kill.
Here we go again . . .
Xena: No time for ladders!
Must . . . reach . . . egg!
P.S. The next morning I found the last bit of egg . . . On the bottom floor of the Backup Cage.
