Hello! I'm Mel (my full name is Melissa) and today I took home my very first rat!
I will post her full story and introduce her on a different board of this forum, one that I think is more appropriate given the nature of her condition right now. However, I need to post here first to introduce myself! I have wanted to own rats for a long time now, and have frequently visited this forum for information...and thought today was a good day to join, seeing as I finally have a pet rat.
I also own six ball pythons, a leopard gecko, two dogs, two cats, and a betta fish. My house is full of animals, and I love it! They're all loved and cared for wonderfully.
Other than that, I'm pretty boring. I'm excited to kick things off with my new friend (unnamed, still) and this forum. I'm looking forward to learning, growing, and sharing here!
Thank you in advance for all the welcomes!
