Hi! I'm a rat owner from the UK, I currently have 5 rats! Bolin, Tingle, Beemo, Bailey, and Puppy! All boys! Bolin is a rescue boy who is VERY chubby and deaf, he started out too shy and scared to leave his box, except at night when everyone else was sleeping. After being with my 4 for a short while, he's come out of his shell and is even begging for attention and nose rubs alongside them! He was kept in a tiny fish tank and fed human leftovers for the first year of his life (including his child owner's sweets/candy!), he is doing much better with his new friends!
