Currently desperately wanting a blue male dumbo, they are soo cute!!! I wanna squishy laprat! :lol: Of course we would neuter him, and then probably get a bigger cage and put them all together. Before I even think about it tho I need to make sure my new girls finish their own quarenteen ok, with no babies and no sickness. I reserve the right to drool over others cute pics tho! :wink:
I've had so much experience with "beautiful" rats and "ugly" (as some seem to think - black hooded and PEWs seem to fall into the category in a lot of people's minds) rats, and honestly... It's all about personality to me. Some of the cutest rats don't have great personalities, and some of the "uglier" rats have awesome personalities.
So. I don't think I could pick a perfect/markings rat by color... definitely matters not to me, if the personality isn't extra friendly, licky (love the lickers) who loves people and has big personality and attitude.
I would like a normal-eared rat. I've never owned anything but Dumbo, I like how normal ears look, they're so cute. I'd also love to have a rex rattie. Colors not that important, but I like barebacks and selfs. Oh, and I love blazes!
I like the markings on my boy who is a white baldy with a dark grey baldy bit and a light grey lightning streak thing down his face! and me girl is a tailless himi. but the perfect addition to my clan would be a husky rat and a jet black dumbo with ruby eyes! n e 1 ever owned any rat like that?! would love 2 c 1!
BIG squishy male, black in color, nice long whiskers, (dumbo is acceptable), and one that LOVES to sit in my lap and be petted and has no problem curling up and falling asleep when out with me. I want a rat that I can turn on his back without him struggling, claws that are not sharp, hair not too long, and one that loves to ride on my shoulder when I am walking about.
Oh... and one that knows how to "hold it", if you know what I mean... one that I can trust to let free range around the room and would come back to me to be petted and loved, eyes boggling all the time, bruxing all the time, letting me know that he is a happy rat.
I have one rat that fits about half of that... but they all are wonderful in their own ways, but put them all together and I have about all those traits. The only thing I don't have is a black rat... but I do have a hairless dumbo male, so I figure that is pretty cool in itself.
