i have never been a member of a rat forum before, but it looks really friendly here
i have 6 rats:
2 girls, Ellie and Leeloo (6 months)
1 boy, Mario - a rescue rat...(9 months)
3 baby girls - Kudjo, Clarice and E.T....they are about 7 weeks old so cute!
i get my rats from a great man who has a little pet shop but gets the ratties from good breeders and is so loving with them that they are used to being held when i get them...he spends so much time with them, the best guy ever!
trying to introduce my little girls to the bigger ones but introductions aren't going well even though i follow loads of advice from the internet. E.T got bitten by Ellie (who is normally lovely) so i have split them up until the babies are bigger to defend themselves.
mario the boy is alone cos his brother died a few months ago before i got him. i was considering neutering him so he can hang out with the girls...he must get lonely on his own...but don't wanna put him through unnecessary suffering. On the other hand, i don't want them breeding so it may be necesary!
anyhoo, that was a long first post....just wanted to say hi!
