We appear to have a cat that belongs to another house that likes to pop in from time to time. He/she is a very nice cat, and I usually wouldn't mind, except as you all know I own two rats...
The white one is Noodle, the brown hooded one is Nibbler. They're both girls and have just had their first birthday. Sadly, this also means they're about a third of the way through their lives. As anyone who's owned rats could tell you, they're surprisingly intelligent creatures and have bags of personality. Neither are especially keen on being handled or stroked, but Noodle is by far the friendliest and most outgoing and will happily wander up to people to see what's up. She's also the amateur gymnast of the pair and whenever she's let out of the cage spends her time trying to climb my bookshelf or the clothes hanging in my wardrobe, constantly trying to get as high as she dare. She's also a kleptomaniac and keeps nicking sweet wrappers or anything shiny and hiding them - currently I'm mising an entire pack of Polos thanks to her. She also hides all the food in the cage and when not running around going mental is usually fast asleep in her hammock.
Nibbler is the exact opposite. She's very wary of everybody and has a bit of an 'attack first, ask questions later' policy. For some reason she's taken to trying to bite me whenever I try and pick her up, but once grabbed she usually calms down. She jumps at the slightest noise (my brother brought round Rock Band the other day - she wasn't keen) and rather than hide food, she just eats it straight away. Since she also doesn't get anything like the exercise Noodle does, she's twice the size. Whilst she must presumably sleep sometimes, I've never seen her with her eyes shut, unlike her sister who doesn't give a shit when she wants a kip.
My mum and dad also owned a house rabbit until recently, who lived to the grand age of 11, which ain't bad going for a bunny.
