I couldn't resist any longer.. Rattie cuteness!

    Yeah yeah.. it's been coming for awhile now. I've had pet rats on/off since I was 12, and I've been itching for some new boys recently. So when I saw their ad on CL, I couldn't resist. Their owner decided to rehome them because she's in the military, and just had a baby a few months ago. Felt bad that the boys weren't getting enough attention. So, here they are!

    They need new names.. the black boy's name is Sirius, and the blue agouti (at least that's what I think he is) is Aries. Not really a fan.. so if anyone has suggestions, feel free!











    Aren't they cute?! The Dumbo boy is very laid back and super sweet. Top earred boy is a little spazzy, but also really sweet. Definitely fun to take pictures of ;)

    Aww, nice! :) I love the agouti! I had always wanted pet rats when I was younger... but I've since taken a more... scaley direction (reptiles) :P

    Name suggestions for the agouti... Jackson, Beluga, Atticus, Crumb, Bayes, Ono, Falk, Spenwood... Oh the random names that pop into my head :lol:

    Thanks guys :) I'm really enjoying them.. I missed having rats! They're like little dogs.

    I like the name Liam.. I'm so picky with names though! Like I think Jasper is cute too but it reminds me of this evil mini horse I helped rescue :lol: I've been around so many animals that half of the names remind me of them!

    grah I am jelious of your camera all the time!! and the fact that you can have rats...stupid allergies...anyhow I always liked naming rats after greek philosophers like Socrates and Aristotle I really donno why but I just did, heck my last rat RIP was named Darwin after Charles Darwin (yea yea he wasn't greek but still I think it fits my theme of genius hehe)

    I love the first photo of the dumbo - adorable! If I could I'd get pet rats, I think they're the best...just like you said little dogs, they're sweet and friendly. They are such under rated pets :). Good luck with these guys!

    The Black one is my love!! I would name him Orion because on the little white star on his head.

    LOL, when I get their new cage, I'll be able to get better pictures of them in "cage mode" (which is where I feed them the tomatoes, because they're messy!) :)
