Rat Snaps


I posted a couple months ago that I had two pet ratties, Rolo and Whiskers, and had quite a few comments from people wanting me to post updates on them every so often. So I thought I'd take a couple of pictures tonight while they were out. 

They're almost 11 months old now, and although I wish they'd get a bit more cuddly with me, they're still as adventurous as ever. I bought them a chew toy from Pets at Home last night (pictured with Rolo above) and can't believe how quickly they've been getting through it already! Whiskers went through a bit of a phase last week in which she wasn't too sociable and went to sleep under my covers all the time, but she's perked up a lot and is back to her usual self.

  1. Fair play to you for loving animals, I love that about someone! I just can't stand nice or rats because of their tails, but I know that's my
    weakness and I need to get over it!

    1. Haha, I'd had hamsters quite often when I was younger and no matter how cute they were I just never had a pet hamster that didn't bite. Rats can be very affectionate though! x

    1. Aw, how cute! I know, I've had them for over half a year now and my dad still thinks of them as "vermin", and I'm sure everyone I work with thinks I'm mad! People don't seem to realise that domesticated rats are completely different from wild ones! x
