Ratties

These are my precious ratties...my pride and joy. I have been owned by rats for about 11 or so years now and can safely say they will always be in my life. I currently have 8 of them.

Caoimhe



Kyna





Storm (he's a little bigger then this now...this was one of his younger pictures)



Angus & Storm



Buddy & Jolly



Thor & Captain



Thor is my 'heart rat' and is a 'mommy's boy'. He always wants to be with me, is very gentle, is kissy/licky & cuddly. He also seems VERY in tune to my emotions. Unfortunately he is about 2 yrs old now and showing his age. I will be devastated when he goes. I love ALL my rats, but some just hold onto your heart more then others.

They are so cute! I wish we could get dumbos here! I have 5 standard-ears though, and I love them all to bits. My boys. I will never be without rats.

Thanks. Yes,I remember hearing Australia could not get dumbos,as well as a few other variety. But I don't know the reason?

But all ratties are great! I am like you,I will never be without rats.

It's because it technically is a genetic mutation. They don't want to risk introducing any associated health problems into the rat population here.

Aren't they the best pets ever? I bought them a box of tissues yesterday, and Richelieu spent the whole afternoon pulling the tissues out, covering the other boys and jumping on them. =) So cute. <3

OMG they are so adorable!!!! I would love to have some ratties some day. :) I love the first picture!

Right now a hamster is a better fit. Don't have room for a large cage.
