Welcome Teri!

Thanks for introducing yourself.  That's so exciting about your first movie as a producer.  Best of luck with that! 8)

LOL, and I'm curious about how well your 6 rats and 4 cats get along?  ;D  I'm a major cat-person.  I have an only-cat at the moment named Vivien. She's a beautiful, petite "classic" black cat and I love her to bits.

Hope you have lots of fun exploring the forums around here!

Ma Twist has been busy baking those cherry cakes lately!  Such a great group of newcomers here very recently!  She made a fancy one this time around...

Oh yum! Coffee and cherry cake! Thank you!

Well, my rats and cats are separated. My one cat that is 16 has been around the rats i've owned for years so he pays no attention. The others are curious but have gotten over it. My bf and I built a big bookcase style cage so there is no way for the cats to get in it. They honestly never pay any attention to them. When they were curious they would sniff around the cage and the rats will jump at them through the bars. Rats know predators and will attack them. If one of the cats gets bitten on the nose I assure you they will stay away. Luckily that hasn't happened yet. The rats are actually very sweet and smart. I've never been bitten and i've owned rats for 8 or 9 years.

Greetings, MsMercury! Thanks for joining us! You have some fascinating hobbies (or vocations) and I'm sure you will be posting up a storm very quickly!

Also, welcome elomelo!! You'll have a cup of coffee, won't you? Piece a cherry cake?

We'd love to hear more about your reactions to the movie and whether you have read the story that it's based on!

When I was a kid I had two pet mice (never rats though).  They were white with grey spots... so cute and sweet.  I had a cat too, and she never seemed to bother them in their cage. I seem to recall that they provided some entertainment for her to watch from time to time, but otherwise seemed to co-exist alright. I was inspired to get them after reading some children's books about mice that I totally adored.

I also used to have a pet rat.  I have never met a fellow rat person before.  I picked my rat up in a pet shop as a baby.  He was cute and very smart.  He was being sold as snake food, which was why I rescued him.

I find rodents of all shapes and sizes to be absolutely adorable, right down to their little paws.  The capybara, the world's largest rodent, is my favorite animal at our local zoo.



I've always wanted a pet squirrel. They always seem so bright-eyed and intelligent! Back home there was one who would come right up to you and look at you and take a peanut right out of your hand.  :D

My Step mom had a pet squirrell named pockets.
She had this big ole ficus tree and pockets would hang out in there and when I would walk by he would jump on me and bite my ear! Only me no one else!
Used to freak me out!

Welcome to BetterMost!



We own a pet shop and sell lots of mice and rats.....but unfortunately most of them do go to snake owners.

If I am working in the shop, (usually once a week), and if anyone comes in to buy one which I know is going to be snake food, I just tell them that the ones we have are "breeders" and not for sale. Just cant bring myself to sell one, knowing its doom.

I told one customer that, one time, and then he said " well, I will just have to buy a guinea pig then"......I was flabergasted.....told him to go buy his snake food somewhere else.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection
