I really love this photo. It’s exactly a month since I posted about Mr Pickles, and looking at him day by day I haven’t seen the improvement. Then I looked at what I had written, and I have to say he has come on so much in this month. After seven months with me he’s finally becoming a more sociable rat. He’s not perfect, and if I hear screeching from the rat room it’s usually Mr P, but he is eating side by side with the other rats and sleeping side by side with the other rats. Well done, Mr Pickles.

Here he is bottom left, with Xerxes and Teddy.xerxespickleteddy
