As Jaali and Ambaa show no signs of becoming friends in the near future their
separate accommodation is being replaced by one much larger house which will be
divided keep them separate. If at some time in the future they do become friends
the divider can be removed to give them one large space.
The new house will also be able to be dismantled and packed flat so they can
use it when they go on holiday with their humans. The construction will borrow
many ideas from the flat-pack-rat-flat, which is
Ambaa’s current house.
The cost is likely to be several hundred pounds but no one ever said that
keeping Pouched Rats was cheap.
