Hi, everyone!

My name is Jaimee! I am a new rat owner; I’ve had my girls for 3 weeks now. Patty and Selma (I’m a Simpsons fan) are still pretty shy, but we’re working on it every day!

I fell in love with rats during an internship at a zoo. I had to do a project about an animal coming into the collection and I was assigned the domestic rat. It was tons of fun learning a lot of interesting facts about them and even planning the set up for when they arrived. They, too, were shy when they joined the collection, but quickly learned about their daily treat cups (fresh fruits and veggies) and came around :)

I love spending time with my rats and trying new enrichment ideas with them! I have some experience in training and I can’t wait to teach them some neat tricks!

Looking forward to participating in the forum and learning a lot from the rest of you guys!

-Jaimee
