which is more lovely?
you can print this page and make an X by the one you choose. you are allowed to pick both if you want. i think they are both pretty but UNCLE BOB WONT GIVE ME ANY!
I would just like to interject that, although it's true I've never given Rugby cheeseburgers or cupcakes, he does get to eat a pretty broad diet of "people food" in addition to the commercial rodent mix of seeds and pellets from the pet store. Rats are "opportunistic omnivores," just as pet dogs are, despite the fact that wild dogs are primarily carnivores, while wild rats mainly eat plant-derived foods.
I give Rugby fresh produce every day -- sometimes a chunk of apple or an orange slice; other times a carrot-top or salad greens. A few times a week he gets a bit of dry dog kibble, which was recommended in one of the rat-care books that I checked out from the library -- that's the closest he's gotten so far to eating beef, unless you want to count the dried bull pizzles that are sold in pet stores as doggie chew toys. Rodents have an even stronger chewing urge than dogs, so I bought a pack of these "beef sticks" to hang from the ceiling of his cage.
