:D Hello all! My name is Dawn and my daughter's name is Hannah. We are the proud parents of a new rat, Turfle. We are very new to having a rat, but would love to learn. Our rat is an American Blue rat and she is a she. She is our only rat at this time as we have 4 cats and a large fish tank. We try to keep Turfle content as the only rat by giving her lots of homemade toys and we take her out and about when we go places. She is quite friendly. We hope to learn all sorts of new things here so, feel free to say hi!! Thanks!
Dawn, Hannah and Turfle Trybjorn

Hi and welcome! Turfle sounds adorable. I hope when your situation changes you decide to get a cage-mate for her because rats really do need the company of other rats! I can't wait to see more pictures! :D

Thanks Guys!! She is one of the cutest things I have ever had. And she is seriously smart! I mean my sweet kitties are really smart but I think Turfle is smarter. AMAZING!!! :eek: My daughter came up with the name as it is the name of a pet ladybug in the book "Time stops for no mouse" by Micheal Hoeye. The lead mouse's name is Hermux! I totally recommend this book to anyone! It was a fun read.

You think she's smart now, wait till she gets older! Pretty soon she'll be out smarting you! It's not long before she relizes her cute little face + a sad look = anything her heart desires. I should know I have been owned by 6 of the smartest rats ever and am currently being owned by 2! :D

That is hilarious.. Well we have been well trained by the kitties who own us now. So she will have no problems...She already knows who will let her have anything...that, of course, being grandma (me) as she is my daughter's. LOL
