When I make food, it always get shared with the rats. In fact, they eat a diet completely comprised of the whole food vegan meals my family eats, with a couple of vitamin supplements (B12 and vitamin D)!
Apparently they also like eating my fingers…
In addition to the healthy stuff, the ratties always get some treats when we eat them– cake, a nib of cookie, etc. Just as with humans, an integral part of living is treats.
I love watching them indulge, seeing how they enjoy their rat-sized-serving of cake without guilt: they know how to enjoy life to the fullest! There is none of the stigma or pressures of eating for rats; they just live and don’t have a problem eating whatever they feel like! Inspiring.
Some treats that have gotten rat approval:
Vinny thought my birthday cake was pretty hot.
The adapted Babycakes Wonderbun was well loved as well.
All three rats (and all four members of my family) loved Hannah’s Cookie Dough Cheesecake.
[And no, they did not get that whole slice. That was just to show how it looked!]
They thoroughly enjoy licking up the leftover pudding bowl bits. 🙂
Last week’s gluten-free rhubarb strawberry muffins were a huge (healthy!) hit.
….It’s a good thing Twiggy and Robin enjoy greens– to counteract those treats! Unfortunately, they haven’t rubbed off on Vinny yet.
What are your favorite treats?
Do you think my rats would enjoy them?
Does your pet enjoy treats?
So many questions! You don’t have to answer them all.
