Rat Snaps

On my birthday on Wednesday my mam made the mistake of suggesting I get rats again, and she'd look after them when I go to Florida. Yesterday, I came home with 3 gorgeous little boys and a substantially lighter purse. 

I was initially going to get two, but I didn't want to be that person who leaves one on their own, so I couldn't resist. They're named Sam, Merry & Pippin (top-bottom) after the hobbits from Lord of the Rings. Pippin is already a mama's boy and was snuggled up with me last night.

I've already had to rush Sam to the vets as it seems he has an upper respiratory infection, so he's had an injection and is on meds for the next week. Rats ain't cheap! But I'm really happy to have them again. They're such friendly little animals!


  1. They are lovely Amy :) You are gonna have loads of fun with those 3 :)

  2. Aw they look so sweet! I'd love to own rats one day. You picked some awesome names as well :D

  3. Arrrr too cute!!!

  4. Awww they're so cute! Hope Sam is feeling better :) x

  6. They are adorable!! I used to have three rats too, I really want to get some more but we just don't have the space :( Poor ratties always get respiratory infections, it's so sad hearing them wheeze and sneeze, I hope your little fella perks up soon!xx

  7. Awh, they're absolutely adorable! Their eyes look like little jelly candy dots :) Hope Sam gets better soon so he can play with his two friends :)

  13. I have 10 rats, and they are such amazing pets. So misunderstood. Although quite costly, especially girls as they are prone to tumors x
