Rat babies! (x-posted)  
Got my petaluma babes! I ended up kinda.. adopting three.. Instead of the planned two.. And the bf was a *little* mad but i just plopped them on him and their scurrying and fuzziness won him over in seconds :) I also FINALLY took pics of my cage set up! It's a little empty looking in the bottom at the moment cuz i was doing some cleaning, but at least you can see the monsterousness of it!

All three!
From left to right.. Ralph, Moe (not actually simpsons references) and Daryl

Aren't Ralph's ears HUGE? hehe..

Lil' Ralph's the one on my glasses.

The little ones' temporary cage

Love this pic..

Daryl's lil white tummy



Ralph and Daryl

(Don't worry, i have a death grip on the little guy! ;)

Older Ratties

It's blurry but i LOVE this photo :)

Gigantor cage! You can see lil' christopher on the left top corner.

Ignore how angry and crappy i look lol.. I'd just woken up ;)

thnx :) The cages are second hand! I wouldn't have had the money for them otherwise ;)

Awh they are so darling! I have never actually seen a male rat in reality, al the rats I own or have owned have been female, and in stores they always seem to be female.

I am guessing many people are put off by their erm... ratty parts!

I think they're lovely :D

Lol.. Yeah, I've definitely had a few people be like.. "There's something on his tail... WAIT.. WHAT THE..?" and i thought I'd be a bit weirded out by "them" but honestly, after awhile you don't even notice. They're amazing boys :) I luv them very much.

LOL "theres something on his tail" XD
My fiance calls it the ratty duffle bag :P

Yeah, you tend to get used to things... my cat had his leg amputated earlier this year (he was run over) and it took me a few months to get used to it, and now I don't even realize :P

Aw, poor kitty! Glad he made it through alright :)

Thank you :) I didn't think he was going to make it for those first few months though!

hehe he gets on well with my ratties, they groom each other bless.
