Rattie boy Squeeze is easy to distinguish, as he squeaks every time he gets squeezed.

Squeeze got his nickname because ever since he got his foot stuck, he squeaks every time he gets squeezed.

One of the smallest, he is very affectionate and needs a lot of love. He is brave and adventurous and will not stop until he gets where he wants to go.

Cuddly and sweet, he snuggles up nicely when sitting on the shoulder. Typical boy, he stays where you put him – as long as he feels safe.

Unfortunately, the litter turned out to have too many boys – actually just one. But as they are so attached to each other, I wouldn’t want to break them up. Therefore we’re looking for a new home for two of our rattie boys. If interested please email

4Sox is showing off his beautiful white socks.


The easiest to spot, not because he has four clear white socks that make him easy to distinguish, but because he was always the first to be there.

4Sox is interested and attentive. He comes when called and is keen on interacting with us. He sits nicely on the shoulder and knows how to cuddle.

Unfortunately this gorgeous boy is one too many: the girls and the boys have to be separated soon. Ideally he can be with one of his brothers, so we’re looking for a loving home for 2 amazing Norwegian pet rat boys. Please email if you’re interested.

Telkom Data Terms & Conditions

Telkom Data Terms & Conditions

Dear Telkom Mobile,

You offer a pretty good deal on your 60GB + 60GB Data Bundle.

Of course, you didn’t include that it only works with your own dongle, for which you charge a whopping R399 extra.

That is like advertising a biltong packet for R100, but at checkout clarifying that it has to be carried with a plastic bag that costs R25. And no, no other carrier bag would work.

And yes, you have prepared for these eventualities with a very ambiguous “Tariffs exclude any other contract/device costs or charges not mentioned in this brochure.” as found in the Telkom brochure’s Data Terms & Conditions – which pretty much renders any prices on your brochure pointless, as you never know: there might be some other “charge not mentioned in this brochure”.

In addition you put an expiry date on your prepaid products.

That is as if you sell a packet of biltong, but at checkout tell your customers if they don’t consume it within the next 10 minutes, you’ll take it back and sell on whatever is left over.

So I pay the full amount in advance, but you get to tell me when I ought to have used it by? I paid for it. – I can use it whenever I want!

Luckily the Consumer Protection Act is on my side. – Section 63:

(2) A prepaid certificate, card, credit, voucher or similar device contemplated in subsection (1) does not expire until the earlier of—
(a) the date on which its full value has been redeemed in exchange for goods or services or future access to services; or
(b) three years after the date on which it was issued, or at the end of a longer or extended period agreed by the supplier at any time. 

Hawkeye explains gift vouchers’ expiry rules in terms of the Consumer Protection Act:

It is against the law to include an expiry date on a pre-paid voucher, card or any similar item. These may only expire after being fully redeemed or after three years.  Section 63 of the Act lays this out clearly, stating that non-compliant businesses could face a R1m fine or 10% of their annual turnover.

They also outline what is fair according to the Consumer Protection Act:

The Act also states that any consideration paid for such voucher remains the property of the bearer until redeemed. Should a voucher be for a specific product rather than a set value, the supplier may reasonably ask for an inflationary adjustment should the price have changed or be able to cancel the voucher by exchanging it for a cash equivalent.

And they confirm that according to Section 63 prepaid vouchers include airtime, SMS bundles and mobile data:

This section of the act has impacted the cell phone companies who cancel unused calls and data bundles. This matter is still under discussion between the National Consumer Commissioner and the Independent Communications Authority of SA.

However, as National Consumer Commissioner Mamodupi Mohlala had clearly outlined the interpretation of Section 63:

Our reading of Section 63 of the act is that the value represented by the voucher does not expire until the date on which its full value has been redeemed in exchange for goods and services or future access to service, or three years after the date on which it was issued, whichever happens earliest. This includes vouchers for data bundles.

Mamodupi Mohlala has repeatedly said unused data must carry over for three years and cannot expire any earlier:

All data and minutes accumulated from last April must roll over for a full 36 months, and operators will be forced to comply with this section.

I therefore kindly ask you to NOT expire my data and let me use up what I paid for in my own time.

Many thanks in advance,

Yours *TrulyJuly*

Join Write Club‘s Write-Up


Getting writing done is all about self-discipline, something that creative minds are not necessarily made for.

The most exhilarating writing can be the moment when inspiration hits and you can’t write fast enough to get it all down on paper.

But how often does this really happen? And when do we actually allow it to happen?

As Stephen King puts it: “Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.” in ‘On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft’.

A Write-Up helps you to get up and do it.


This is why Write-Ups work:

1) You’re not alone
Writing can be a very lonesome activity. The actual writing process mostly comes down to one person doing just that: writing. The good news is that you can write alongside others. So while you’re still concentrating on your own writing, you know others are there for support.

2) There is structure
The hardest thing is to get going. A Write-Up kick-starts you into the process. It presents you with a clear routine that doesn’t give you other options. The more you do it, the more you can practice your own ritual that gets the writing juices flowing.

3) You take on accountability
You can fool yourself, but not so easily others. If you state what you want to write before the Write-Up and then plan to read it out after the Write-Up, you better come up with something. This productive pressure can help you to just do it.

4) There is a deadline
If we have time, we take time. If you know you only have a limited amount of time available, somehow you get it done. We can set deadlines for ourselves with the possibility of endless extensions, or we can stick to the deadline set by a Write-Up.

5) You get feedback
Especially creative writing can be tough when there is no immediate feedback. So you write and write and write but how do you know if it is any good? At a Write-Up you get the chance to read it out aloud and realise the impact of your writing.


If you fancy yourself as a writer or if you just have to get that writing done join a Write-Up and see where it takes you. Any writing goes at a Write-Up: Delve into free flow, continue your novel, work on that report or even write code / lyrics / whatever you feel like.

It is really about just doing it and making writing an active part of your life.

Join Write Club for upcoming Write-Up sessions and other writing goodies:

We are Bellevue College students partnering with Seattle Humane, an impact non-profit organization, with their mission to find homes for the animals in their shelter that are normally considered "unadoptable." Seattle Humane is unlike any animal shelter. They take in animals no matter the breed, age, or physical condition and hold them for as long as it'll take them to find proper homes for these animals. Their hard work and care is exactly what we need to create a better environment for the animals we love. Please follow our instagram page @bcforhumane for more animals in need of a home.
