Hello Rat Forum Member!

I have kept rats in the past (about 10 years ago). After my girlfriend and I moved away from our parent's cats and dogs, we decided that we needed a new fur baby. So I suggested that we adopt a couple rats. Well we adopted a couple adorable dumbo eared females from somebody on craigslist about 3 weeks ago.

One of the females gave birth on January 16, 12 babies! The other one looks like it's fairly close to exploding (giving birth)! Anyways I was not expecting to adopt a couple pregnant females. If you have any advice or would like to adopt any rats in the near future, please let me know. We are in the DC/VA area.

I will try to post some more photos of the adorable babies later today.

I do have experience raising rats...when I had my rats about 10 years ago the pet store assured me that they were both males...

P.S. My apologies in advance for not posting in the adoption forums (I need to get my post count up).

Those little eyes are precious! I feel like I'm looking at the baby version of my sweetest boy Owen!
