Aspen


And Veronica

have taken to burying their food.



I think it might have something to do with the cold weather, and the instinct to store food away for the winter months. I FIND IT SO ADORABLE. TOO ADORABLE. *_*



I keep their dish on the very top level of their cage, and all of their carefresh bedding is on the bottom. So all of those bits of white up top are pieces they've carried from the bottom of the cage to the food dish, to hide their food. *_* IS THIS NOT CUTE? :( Does anyone else's rats do this?

Hey you! *squishes* Yes, I have been MIA for too long. But you lured me out of hiding with rat awesomeness :D

Ari and Kiwi do the same thing. Though they just started doing it around June or so. But they've got some mad food hiding skills, heh. They bury it, bowl and all.

My rats for sure like to try and bury their food. My hamsters and mice also did this.

So clever. :( I keep picturing little cartoon squirrels, hiding their acorns in tree knots!

Mine do something similar, but in reverse. Henry, particularly, hoards food sometimes. He nabs it from the food bowl and hides it in a stash somewhere else in the cage.

Awwwww *_* Veronica is always hiding food in little stashes somewhere. I often find little piles of treasures under my bed. :))

It is such a cute thing to do! Even if it's also a little bit annoying sometimes...
