Episode 18 (12-27-2017) Choking in Rats – is Kylo Ren to Blame? The Last Jedi Might Have the Answers

Matt and Liz talk about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, what to do with choking rats (and how to prevent it), and more.

Ratty Topics – What causes choking in rats? For Toro, unfortunately, it was old dried bread. Dry bread expands and gets too sticky. We talk about what to do if a rat is choking and what foods can cause a rat to choke (dried bread and peanut butter).

Also, we have a new hairless rat as a foster. She has a lot of cysts and pimples. This is typical for hairless but one cyst burst and became infected. We talk about special health issues to watch out for with hairless rats.

Nerdy Topics – We saw the classic Christmas movie of all time, Die Hard, at the AFI Silver Spring Theatre. And we have lots to say about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Kylo Ren, Rey, Reylo, fanfiction, we cover it all.

We’re also loving the current season of Agents of SHIELD and Matt is excited for MegaMan 11 coming out soon. And hey, maybe the Disney acquisition of Fox studios will give us Deadpool and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in the Avengers universe!

We’ll be watching the Doctor Who Christmas Special tonight, so look forward to our review next episode. We’d like to see Jumanji in the coming week, too, so hopefully we’ll have that to review next episode as well.
