Oh I loooove Buttons, looks just like a pair of rats I used to have. I called them Shoes and Socks, because the only difference was socks had slightly more white on her feet. And I love the picture of Buttons in bed, but where is her little ratty sized pillow? I used to love feeding the rats an egg. You should take pictures to show everyone how cleverly they peel an egg, it is fascinating to watch
Jules, and everyone else, rats are the best pets. You have no idea how clever they are. Very interactive with people, they adore people, and clean! It's only boy rats who smell, and rats will use part of their home for a toilet, so it is easy to scoop that bit out everyday and no smell at all. I would love to have rats again, they were the coolest pets I've ever had
You reckon six is a lot! I have twenty six at the moment and I'm getting another girlie this weekend and possibly two more within the next month!. BTW I'm not a psycho rat 'Have rats coz others don't like them' type of person I started off with one then decided to get into the hobby of breeding them for show. I won Reserve Champion at the Royal Melbourne Show last year!
