Is it yogi time?



We are so hungry please feed us.

Screw this I'm going to explore.

Pip is growing up!


These are the two new girls I got. There's a really nice, privately owned pet shop near me that stocks rats from a local breeder. They're just so adorable. Little berkshire agouti dumbos. I like how they have little white tips on their tails. It is obvious that someone spent a lot of time with them before I got them because they already crawl onto my hand and give kisses. They're just so sweet. And little!

They don't have names yet, as I haven't quite figured out how to tell them apart. Time for food coloring.

I added another wire cage on top of my other two so I currently have a Frankenstein cage tower. Its a little unwieldy and just a wee bit too small so I'm going to the hardware store today to get some pvc pipe and canvas. This weekend they will have a new cage, very large.


So completely tame!



Hello!

I like how they look silvery.

Look at those itty bitty feet!!

Making friends. Awwww.


Pip is cuddly with the new ones and Pebbles has adopted them and is constantly grooming them. I'm glad they all get along.

Re: The rat girls! + 2 more

Did you already go through quarintine? They are very pretty girls look more like irish than berks though are their entire bellies white? or is it more of a triangle of white on their chests? if it is only on their chests they are irish

Re: The rat girls! + 2 more

They've been quarantined and bathed. They don't have a lot of white but it goes from their back legs to the front. I tried to take a picture but they were just too wiggly and uncooperative. They're so cuddly already, more than any of my other rats. Well, Smudge likes to be held and scratched but she doesn't actively seek attention.

Split the difference....lol! I also like to go to this one pet store near me called That Fish Place to get their rats a little more socialized, because I don't have my boys yet this is the most ratty experience I can get lol. They are nice, but I think they are getting tired of me hanging out there on the weekends....lol.

I also like to ask like really random questions and see if the employees know, but the people who work in the small animal room are all rat owners so it's nice to get into conversations with them.

oh that is wonderful!! talk to them as much as possible they will be able to help tons!!! It is really hard for me to deal with petstores around here because of the imbecilles they hire to work int he small animal areas. I applied to PetSmart and the manager honestly told me that I was TOO EXPERIENCED with rats. I didn't mesh well with how they sell their animals (i.e. i would not let people put too many rats in a too small cage i would not sell a rat to someone who had an aquarium and i would not let them by pine or the food sold there LoL)
