I am aiming to get him a friend after tax refund comes and I get him a larger cage with lots of levels and toys. Sigh*I couldn't leave him behind and risk him being devoured by a snake. He is too pretty. I had this one pair before my ex husband turned into a jerk. My twins, they went to a good home with a lovely family because I was supposed to move to Germany. Grrr, I miss my boys but at least I can start over with Jack and his future bud.
It's going to feel good to have a pair back. I have missed it so much.
Fancy rat just means domestic rat. :) You can get different morphs, like manx, double-rex, dumbo etc, but they are all the same species.
I love watching rats interacting with each other. :) Funniest times. I'm excited for you! :D I'm sure they are both going to have a lovely home with you.
Lol, someone in my cage just stood on someone else and I heard a very outraged squeak.
Very trivial rant: as soon as I put my rat washing on the line, it started raining.
