Rat Weights

We gave the rats their monthly weigh-in. It is becoming more and more challenging to have them sit still on the scale. Boone is strong and big enough that he just bursts open the box we put him in to weigh him. It might not be too necessary any more, since Scout and Smoky didn't gain any weight in the last month. Boone, on the other hand, continues his upward trend, gaining two ounces. He already seems so big.

Smoky (20oz) playing with Joy. Smoky loves to spend time with you. Joy had just wrestled him to his back. Smoky then gave her a manicure. He is pretty gentle with us.

You can see a little bit of the bright brown patch on Smoky's chest.

Boone is now 1lb 8oz. How big will he get?

Scout (18oz) is the smallest of the boys. He definitely watches what he eats, and isn't just bullied out of food. He can still hold his own in a tussle, even being 6oz smaller than Boone.
