:D HI! My name is Melissa, I live in Clarkston, MI. I have 4 boy rats: Cody, an 8-month-old black and white hooded; Jack, a 7-month-old beige self; Roan, a 6-month-old Siamese; and Zeke, a 4-month-old black self dumbo. I will soon be bringing home 2 baby girls: Ashelia, a 2(?) month old platinum self with a cute little white headspot <3 and Cleopatra, a 2(?) month old black-masked dumbo. (the girls ages are approximate)
My rats are absolutely spoiled rotten and take up most of my non-work related time. I work midnights at a nursing home, and when I'm not sleeping I'm playing with "the kids".
I live with my best friend and her boyfriend. They have four rats of their own: Rupert, a very handsome PEW boy that's a little over a year old; Obi Wan, a beige self, about 9 or 10 months; Socrates, a 3-month-old black and white hooded; and Lemiwinks, also 3 months old, black self standard. We also have 2 cats, Ebee and Cyndal, and a corgi, Nevaeh. (whew, talk about a full house!) My roommate and I just constructed a wooden playpen for all the boys, and it's our proudest accomplishment to date :eek: It's about 4 feet long on each side and the boys just love it. They're all very close in age and they love playing together.
My friends make fun of me and say that my boys have more of a life than I do =) But it's okay, I have something they do not: I have the love and affection of 4 beautiful little boy ratties <3 and I wouldn't trade that for anything in the world.
That's all. :p

Well....I lied. We picked a name ourselves for the little rex dumbo...her name is Lola. Now I've stuck to my regimen of 4-letter names: There's Cody, Jack, Zeke, Roan, Lola, Cleo and Ashe.
Once my camera stops being stubborn and starts taking some good, not blurry, pictures, I'll be able to load them. Right now it's making the babies look extra fuzzy. :roll:
