We decided to get a new rat in case anything happens to one of our two girlies since they're getting a bit old. Anywho she's a dumbo rat and omg sweet. She got miffed at me for putting her in her cage (she's in her own cage until the girls adjust) and chattered at me so loudly for 30 mins straight. Once she got done rat yelling at me she fell asleep in my hair then decided to set up shop in my boobs since she can get pets at the same time. Lol even dh said he likes her and held her - he prefers our mice much more then rats, so that's saying something.





Anyone else have/like rats?

Love! I used to have a huge cage with 5 male rats. They were wonderful. I had to rehome them when my second pregnancy was full of complications and I didn't feel they were getting the care they needed.

Your new girlie is adorable

Re: Got a new rattie!!

Love that second picture. We don't have pets like that... We had a fish tank and hermit crabs, so we're used to 'exotic' pets, but we got rid of them to clear out space.
We have 2 cats now and rats would not FLY in our house!!

She's almost asleep in the second pic

Aww I had hermit crabs too for a while but then they went into hybernation mode and never came out from the sand anymore. Lol so I rehomed them to my schools marine science/biology class who had a bunch already.

Watch out with her between your boobs, my old male used to hang out there and turns out he was just eating my bra hahaha!

I love Ratties, we used to have two males, Dot and Dash, but turns out I am very allergic to them and over time I was just not able to handle them with out breaking out in huge rashes. So when they passed, we decided not to get any more I love your girl though so adorable!

Re: Got a new rattie!!

DD1 is lobbying for a rattie. We had to put our very old dog down a few weeks ago and she is thinking ahead. We still have Samson(pit/mix) and I am just not sure how he would do with a rodent We adopted some gerbils years ago and our Boston was having a nervous breakdown. I had to keep their tank up on the fridge and every time she heard them moving she would freak out. Any links I should check out if we are considering a rattie?

Re: Got a new rattie!!

I love rats so much. I bred them back in highschool and had about 36 at one time in two humongous(like 5 feet tall) cages, and two smaller cages. I really want to have them again, but hubby doesn't approve at all.

Daaaaawwwww!!!!

Don't have, but LOVE rats. I can't have rats due to the python that lives in my sewing room.

She is lovely. What a pretty girl. <3
