So this is my new Rat, Von Dutch.
We call her Dutchy or Ratty :)
I bought her on a total whim! I've always had cats, fish or birds, but never a rat! She was the last one in the pet store, we bonded, and I felt bad leaving her! hahaha
But she's gorgeous, and I love her :)
She likes frozen peas, bits of toast and snuggling into my dressing gown :D

Re: My new Ratty :)

Awww... I love her coloring! And those ears are adorable! You might want to consider getting her a friend, though... rats are VERY social animals, and they get depressed when they're on their own.

Re: My new Ratty :)

yeah, she's really cute.
I'm not sure what breed, or what colour you'd call her, she's almost the same as my parents Russian Blue cats.
Her belly has a big white splotch, which is adorable :)
I am thinking about getting her a friend, but she's quite spoiled, and spends most of the day with me :)

Eee, so cute, look at those little socks on her feet. Adorable.

But with regards to a friend, you should definitely try to get her one.Then you can spoil TWO ratties, which is twice the fun. Even if you were to carry her on your shoulder all day, you can't stay up all night wrestling! And she can't steal food from you (well, I lied, she can and will, but it's not the same), or chase you around the cage, or cuddle up in a kleenex box, etc. People aren't rats, she'll know the difference. And she'll likely become even friendlier if you do get her a friend, because she'll be happier.

But she is definitely a cutie, have fun with her!

they are adorable!!

but i think you should put some towels down on the floors of the cage so they dont hurt there little feet. itll be more comfy for them too.

Yeah, definitely put a towel or fleece down, so they can be a little more comfortable.

Cute rats, btw. :)

Where did you get that cage? Seems nice.
