I'm here to say my hellos in the Say Hello forum. :)

I recently got my 9 year old daughter two female rats for her birthday. She originally was asking for a guinea pig or a hamster, but I worked hard at convincing her to get rats instead. I had two rats when I was in high school (I saved them from the snakes in the science lab) and I think they're wonderful pets. Once I read her a bunch of information and showed her Youtube videos of rats, she was finally sold. And now she absolutely loves them! I got them a double Critter Nation and sewed for days to make their enclosure fun and homey. I ended up buying them from Petsmart, which was really the last thing I wanted to do. But I searched and searched for over a month to find a breeder, rescue or shelter to get some rats here in CT and I came up empty. If you know of any better places to get rats in CT, do let me know! With that said, our two rats are complete sweethearts and are warming up to us quickly. They are Dumbo rats, a tan and white named Minnie and a black and white named Rita.

Hello to all of you in rat land!
