hello all! glad i found a website where i can get info on rats as i may need it! my name is alex and i live in the new forest. i currently have 2 9 month old female hooded rats, called splinter and april. unfortunately i am having to rehome them as they need a lot more attenion to help to tame them, a little. i brought them from a local pet shop and they hadnt been handled at all, so they r still very shy but have comeon loads, i will really miss them. i also have two 8 week old male dumbo rats. i have always wanted dumbo rats and ceased the opportunity wen i saw them in my local pets at home! they r called reggie and ronnie, reggie is brown and white and ronnie is ginger and white with red eyes, they r adorable! cant wait for them to grow into gorgeous tame rats! so hello from me and hope to talk to u all soon!!!

Welcome.

Why do you have to rehome the females simply because they haven't been handled? There are numerous threads on how to earn a rat's trust. :)

Sounds like my oldest two boys.

Who haven't bitten/squeaked in months and are very cuddly.

Just saying.

Seriously... was splinter really the only ever famous rat? We should do a poll on how many people have rats named splinter here haha!
