PostSubject: Four cute rats!   Sun Aug 26, 2012 10:03 am

My friend let me take some pictures of her four rats when I was last over and I couldn't resist sharing them Razz She got them all for the same store but the dad was getting old and the person didn't want to breed from him any more so she got him too. She originally just had the one, Moon Tot, and then she got Nikoli and then Spencer and Rossi (dad) together. They're all super super cute! Rossi is grumpy and old, not handled much so he isn't too keen on being picked up but he's happy to take food from you, Nikoli freaks out when you pick him up and he always plays the others up but Moon Tot and Spencer are really sweet and even I can hold them, and I'm funny about holding other peoples pets Wink

Moon Tot - creamy colour with a little tiny grey stripe on his head
Spencer - all over creamy colour
Nikoli - dark brown and white
Rossi - cream with a brown-ish face

They've definitely made me want to start keeping rats again, I once had one when I was really young but he passed away. They make wonderful pets if raised well! They're super clever too Very Happy I quite fancy breeding them lol!

OMG they are sooo cute. I use to have a lot of rats, only a couple were really affectionate, Hayato and Kuro. Kuro was a mega baby to me, but my mom didn't like him, lol well he only loved me so. Hayato was already a year when I got him and he was an angel. I never purposely bred but two of the girls I bought were pregnant when I bought them, so I had lots of babies Very Happy

Oh they sound so sweet! They tend to have huge litters too, I imagine you kept the babies Very Happy ? The person I bought Bandit off bred rats for his raptors food because obviously he could get them for free. I sat here like Shocked and he gave me a big bag of youngsters for Bandit. I was so upset!

That's so sad, I know a lot of rats can have complications during and after birth, it all depends on the age they start breeding apparently, I've been doing a lot of research into it now
