Troublemaker Update

For Wordless Wednesday, I thought I'd share some of my Instagram photos so you can take a peek at what's been going on in the Pawsitively Pets house. Last week was incredibly busy. We went to Schlitterbahn Waterpark, Lake Travis, and a birthday party.

Shorts are fun to play in!

These two guys have so far turned out to be pretty mischievous. Much more troublesome and messy than Nibblet ever was. One of them chewed through my computer speaker cord one day.

No more sound. 

They do still fight with each other sometimes, but other times I catch them cuddling together. Mostly I am just monitoring their behavior and separating them as needed.

Gus tired out after his bath. 

And because they are so messy, I decided to give them a bath. It seems like they've probably never had one before. Gus, pictured above, started defecating while I washed him and furiously tried to escape. The bath only lasted 2 minutes tops. Jack decided that much squeaking was in order. He seems like a pretty vocal little guy.

I'm not up to anything, I swear! 

Shiner's been keeping out of trouble, even though it looks like she and Mr. Fish are up to something in this photo.

Yummy veggies. 

And remember our vegetable garden we shared a few weeks ago? Here are some of the results of that. Red bell pepper and Sun Gold tomatoes. The tomatoes are orange, they don't really get red. They are delicious! We've been eating them all week, so there is way more than what is pictured. Our bell peppers are quite small, but there are plenty more growing. At least 20.

Hope you all had a great holiday weekend! Let us know what you're up to in the comments!

    1. Well the plants have actually almost died a few times lol... it is harder to keep things in pots than in the ground because they dry out faster.

  4. Those veggies look yummy! I've tried to grow a few things before, but I always manage to kill everything. I'm pretty sure Shiner is up to something mischievous in that photo ;)

  12. They're so cute, those little troublemakers. At least you'll have lots of fodder now for Monday Mischief posts - rat style! There's nothing tastier than a home grown tomato! Unfortunately I'm deathly afraid of the horrifying thumb sized tomato worms that seem to come from nowhere here in So Cal. Do you get those there too? **shudders** The horror!

  16. I love fresh, homegrown tomatoes. My mouth is watering.

  17. They're awful cute... hopefully they'll settle down a little bit once they get used to their new home.

    Great photos!

  18. I have seen one of the pics in instagram :)
    Hope they can be tamed soon....well as tame as Nimblet.

    This is the first time I see red bell pepper.

    1. Oh they are definitely very tame! But they are still rats and just make a little more trouble than the last one. These red bell peppers do not look like the ones in the grocery store here. Those ones are WAY bigger than these.

  21. I sometimes miss our rats, especially Sugar who was a real sweetie. They can be messy for sure but still fun to play with and watch. Cute picture of Shiner and Mr. Fish. Your peppers and tomatoes look yummy, nothing like fresh veggies. Hugs and nose kisses for you and yours from me and mine!
