We had a little party for Urs today. We don’t know his exact birthday, but we’ve estimated that it’s around nowish. He is 3(ish!), which makes him the oldest rat we’ve ever had and he’s doing remarkably well considering!
I made cake (what party would be complete without?) which Urs got first dibs on the sofa before it was broken up and presented to the hoarde. David helped with the candles but Urs needed no help with his wish – he wished for new back leggies!
He wasn’t that bothered by the cake at first, he licked at the frosting and covered his paws in it.. but once the wrapper was off he got very excited and decided he needed to take it somewhere a little more private.
Even the wrapper was too delicious to waste and must be defended from thieving humans!
The others didn’t seem to think cake was worth getting out of bed for. Ptarmie and Burdock were already up and Minnow managed to drag himself out of bed.. and Boo just appeared as if from no where! Everyone else stayed in bed.
Happy birthday Ursula, keep going strong!
