My freinds cat brought a baby rat home the other day and it wasn't even scratched! The cat just waltzed in and dropped it in a box IN A BOX not on the floor not on our feet not in it's kitty spots but in a empty box right in front of us!!!!!! 8O And to top it off it's not a true wild rat! she has the brown fur but she has white socks on her forelegs and a tiny patch of white on her underside! She's about three-four months. I volentered to care for her becuase of the cat. And what's most suprising is she is hardly affraid off people she's just very skidish. I haven't give'in her a name yet cuase I want to find a really good name that means Wild. Any name suggestions are welcome. :)

Sometimes kitties will do this because they feel it is a gift to you, dead or alive. My cat brought home a baby rabbit in perfect condition once and laid it at my mom's feet but we weren't so lucky and he took off tearing around the house haha!!
I just went on to babelfish and typed in wild and here's what I got for ya:
French: sauvage
Italian: selvaggio
Spanish: salvaje
I also typed in wilderness just to see what I'd get and here were the results:
French: désert
Italian: selva
Spanish: yermo

Depending on whether it's male or female... but I think Selva is a REALLY cute name. Up to you though, those were just some ideas. You should post a pic when you get a chance.

you should name her Fera, its feral (which means wild) but without the l so it sounds like a girl name
That's a great idea! I vote for Fera, too :)

....It kinda makes me think of fairy.... *Ick*!! I don't like *girly* stuff.

I wonder why she is so placid.? From what I know wild rats run at the sound of people but I'm able to cuddle with her...:?

Any more names??

I like the Japanes launguage myself.:)

Perhaps she was a secret pet that got discovered or something.

??What do you mean secret pet that got discovered??

OOhhh....you mean the parent(s) said no or something and the kid got her anyway then the parent(s) found her and just threw her out like yesterdays trash insted of taking her back to pet store....right?:(

Or maybe she was in a accident litter and dumped becuase the owner couldn't find a home. She deffinitaly has domestic blood (genetics) becuase she has the white socks and small white spots on her underside and she has the teeny tinyest bit of white on the tip of her tail.

I wish I could post pics but I've no camra. :( If I ever get a chance I will not hesitate to post pics.:)

Any name that means wild or untamed or something simalar is kinda what I'm going for and as I said before I'm really interested in the Japanes launguage.:)

i thought that was spelt Nezumi, with an "i". i had a rat once with that name. she was quite the doll. and she had one heck of a story.... to have overcome so much to die so young... *sighs*

but i know what you mean about the japanese names. i have a rat named Kakushi which mean pocket (my first rat was named Pocket in english) and i have another named Iedani which means dustmite (i had a rat named Dust and another named Myght). then i have a cat named Sesshoumaru, which besides being a character on an anime also mean "killing perfection" and yet he lets the rats crawl all over him and even protected the baby rats from the other cats like a mother would her kittens. and Sessho is a male! he's a very odd cat... and i named one of my mother's dogs Boshi which means spot

in anycase try googling a japanese translator. should be able to find the translation that way.

Yeah, something like that. Kid got a pet rat, didn't clean it out as much as s/he should, parents smelt it and dumped it. :(

yep, that would the anime but he was named more for the meaning of the name. mom originally thought of it because of his foofy tail but i only accepted because of the meaning of the name. see he was SUPPOSED to be the barn cat but he never made it over to the barn and my parents gave him to me after my cat of 13 years died in my arms.

I like Arai. Does anybody know how you pronounce it?

What about untamed?:?

In Japanese, the 'r's are kind of like a rolled 'r' or an 'l' sound.


And the 'a' and 'i' in succession are said like 'ah-yee'


So, the whole thing would prolly be something like 'Ala-yee'.

And 'miko' means priestess, so the name would lose the meaning once the 'n' is gone. Japanese is a very complicated language strangely similar to our own in that one letter can change the meaning and/or pronounciation of the word.
