Hi all, Today I picked up 2 beautiful boys from a pet store I volunteer in. I had decided a few weeks ago that I wanted to get mice, and after ding loads of research I loved the sound of rats as well. So today I got them, 2 lovely boys, Rattus and Larry Love (my son's choice in name - I think it sounds like a porn star name, but it's quirky). Larry is super excitable. He's very adventurous and mischievous, Rattus is a little more laid back, he's also a little more nervous around my hand. I have been trying to feed them treats - blue berries and peas - sometimes thy will take it from my hand, and others they are a little apprehensive. My son (6) stuck his finger in the cage. He told me that Rattus came up and nibbled on his finger softly. Because it tickled he left his finger there for Rattus to continue. What he wasn't expecting was for Rattus to sink his teeth into his finger. He came to me, loads of blood all over his hand (rattus's teeth got the capillaries in his finger, it bled quite a bit, but not for too long), wasn't anything too serious. He was very brave and didnt cry, but I think he's learned his lesson.Rattus or Larry havnt bitten me as of yet, Rattus has mouthed my finger, but I take my finger away and tell him gently 'no'. I'm excited to get to now my boys, to learn to love on them, o play and grow and develop with them. To offer them the best life I can. I am glad I found this forum. I'm looking forward to hearing for you all. (Rattus, my boy)
