I have two little boys ! I had been ratless for over a year and decided to take the plunge again (lost my passion when my big 'ol 3.5 year old boy died), when I saw two adorable babies available from a breeder in my state. I fell in love with them through their pictures...especially since one of them looked like my Spoots (my heart rat). We drove the 3 hours there and 3 hours back on Jan. 22nd to pick them up!

They are 6 weeks old and both dumbo eared. Thaddeus is a Blue Blazed Bareback Rex and Tate is a Black Dalmatian Down-under Odd-Eye Rex (phew!). I named them after characters from the tv show "American Horror Story". I just love my little Rexy boys .


Thaddeus...



Tate...




And they live in a Martin's R680. I make and sew all of their hammies & liners .....

I agree! Since apparently this is the only place you can comfortably talk with other rattie lovers!

They are adorable! I love the way you decorated the cage, too! I wish I was that crafty. And yes I messed up the quote when I went to edit.

I have that same Martin's cage, it's my backup. I just LOVE your hammock set, and love the fact that you cover the floors. I actually have two R699's, but I took one apart and made a R680. Mine are 7 years old though, and starting to show wear. Your boys are gorgeous, reminds me of two I bought years ago. The first boy doesn't look odd eye to me though lol I have an odd eye boy, Ash :) Congrats though, I couldn't have turned away from them myself!

I've had two odd eyes over my time, and a one eye lol Ash was a fluke, as he was actually a feeder litter but he grew to big for his predator :( He's one of my favorites but he's not to happy about human touch. He never bites though, just protests like crazy at the sign of any affection.

Awe! That's too bad, he looks extra cuddly!
I'm hoping to rescue an old lady from near my home, in Rhode Island.
I'm hoping sammi can have a friend! I've started to look online at rescues and Craigslist, but so far have only been contacted by a breeder, and I'm looking to give some old girl a place to live out her days in luxury..

Your odd-eye is adorable, PitLuvs! I agree though....I don't see odd-eye in Thadd's, but that's okay :).

I need to sew more hammies! I had a month to prepare for the boys and only sewed two sets (which have already been used) and cage cleaning is in 2 days, hehe. Do you sew your own or do you buy them?

I sew my own :) I have bought from rat rescues who use the profits to help with their rescues, but I find it cheaper to make my own. I usually make cubes, flats, pouches, tunnels and double decker types. Try making cubes out of old jeans, so sturdy and my rats LOVE them. Sadly, I have a huge box full of material but my kids broke my sewing machine :*( So, I bought a new sewing machine for my Mom for Christmas so I'm sending all my material to her to make me hammocks LOL
