This is seriously bumming me out. I knew I was allergic to rats, but then tonight I was holding Martin and he lightly scratched me. Instant hives :(

I love my little guys so much. Since I rescued them from a friend (they were given as birthday gifts :evil:), they've become so sweet and social. Martin is especially friendly, but even Chuck will climb into my hand for a treat.

Guess I'll have to be more careful about handling them from now on...and wear long sleeves.

Same way I manage with the mice. When I want to play with them, I close the bedroom door and keep the cats out. Otherwise, I'll be standing when I hold them, and the cats can't get anywhere near the little guys.

When the mice are in their bin cages, the cats love to sit and watch them. The mice could honestly care less, they'll even come right over to the side and stare at the kitties :lol:

a rare photo of the highly elusive Chuck (squeakus domesticus)



Here we see him taking pieces of paper towel tubing to line his nest. His alert stance and raised foot tells us he is keen to the presence of his nemesis: humanis photographus.

:lol:

I love ratties and mice are so cute.....I am quite allergic to them myself. I break out in hives and instant asthma from rats...we had quite few over the years but I finally had to give up since the allergies to them continued to get worse and worse to the point I couldn't even be near them let alone hold them. I'm sorry you have allergies to your mice. Big bummer. :(
