Cheryl, it was weird that your comment came up with a different ID number for the photo and with no photo there. I see that happen ever so often, and I have decided it must happen when two people comment at the same time. Thank you so much for your support and kind words. Oreo is a bit more shy (and quicker!) than Olive, but she couldn't go too far in the lightbox, and she had to climb out of the can before she could attempt to escape (which she did climb out right after I took this).

I like the capture of Olive with the peanut but I just adore this one of Oreo. I think the composition is terrific and the title fits sooo well. My son used to have two rats. He started out calling them "the girls," it stuck, and they never did get individual names. #5978147
