Thanks everyone!!! I am getting 2 more in a few weeks. I will have 8 in total. I had lost 3 between September - October and it was hard. These boys will be nowhere near my females. They are in quarantine 2 floors above my other ratties and will be for a few more weeks. But their cage will be on the other side of the room.

Have a great day!! :)

My family has renamed me "The Rat Queen". I am not sure how I feel about it yet though.

I love Dumbos...but I'm not convinced on the hairless thing. I rat-sat two ratties over Xmas...and one was a Dumbo hairless. I just couldn't see the charm...the other was a regular hooded rat, and he was cute. They were both very friendly and nice, but the hairless..."ewww".

I almost got a Dumbo at the last rodent show I was at...but I went with the rescue female from a "owner bought at pet store and didn't know they would have babies" cage.

They are cute...but I have to say that I'm a sucker for the blue ones...so Oliver's my fav. My first rattie was a blue female named Lila. :)

My heart rat was a big blue boy named PomPom. No other rat will ever measure up.

And I love the hairless ones! They're so warm. They remind me of my Wally's nekked belly.

The picture I posted of the last one I am waiting on is much much different looking this week. I can not get over his color change. Check it out. He is a Blue Self Dumbo.

It is so freaky how his coloring changed so much. I will have a hard time telling him and Oliver apart.

Have a great day!! :)

It is so weird because that first pic looks like he is champagne colored. He has always been listed as a Blue Self Dumbo though. No matter he is cute as can be.

All my other ratties are rescues. Here are 2 of them who are dumbos.

Here is a rescue I took that you can't see it but he has only one eye. He was from a hoarder. Just so sad.

Ack! So freakin' cute! I LOVE baby ratties, they are so goofy with their giant heads! As soon as I win the lotto and can quit my job, I'm getting ratties again.
