I recently saved two fancy rat babies (a black hooded and a blue-gray) from being snake food at a pet store (so much for just getting a betta). Then today I adopted two dumbo dwarf hooded rats and will be adopting a black dumbo rex dwarf next Friday. Get my little colony all set up I'm going to be buying an "All living things small animal cage" in a couple weeks and I've ordered some cute hammocks for my boys the black hooded is named "Oso." The blue-gray is "Remy." One of the beige hooded dumbos is "Valentine" a.k.a "Val" because he has a spot on his side that looks like a heart. His brother who looks just like him minus the heart is "Cupid" a.k.a "Cue." And the wee black rex will be "Mickey" after "Mickey Mouse" (my 2 1/2 year old named him).
