My gorgeous ratties

I have 5 very special rats. I know you are probaly creeped out right now but i have to say rats are very great pets. They require alot of work and attention but they are so rewarding and love their cuddles and scritches.

I have 5 because its unfair to keep one rat by itself. Like many animals.

Here are some pics:

Me and some of my girls


My rats and a friends rats


Trixie and tina

Hope you enjoyed :)

P.s Rats love to run around at a quiet park with no dogs, just like wild ones :)

I think they are cute. I like the pic of them eatting their lunch. I had a couple of mice an iguana and a hamster when I was a youngster.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I absolutely love them! I used to work at a pet shop when I was a teenager and my friend (who also worked there) and I used to take a rat with us wherever we went. They were great at balancing on your shoulder.

They have great personalities and contrary to popular belief, they are very clean.

I used to have rats. I loved them and even got my mom, who was totally against them, to fall in love too. She wants a pair of boys. I found them to be a lot less destructive than the girls.

I swear, Poppy has the same face as my Misty. Makes me miss her so much.

She lived to be about 2 1/2.

I also had rexes, dumbos, hairless (they were really cool) and then the ones you'd find in pet stores.

I'm still trying to convince Tom to let me get a pair....
