Rat Care Corner / Missing Rat!?!???
« Last post by MaatAset on Yesterday at 12:38:00 AM »
Iím gutted. I donít know what has happened. In my two decades of rat ownership Iíve never had this happen. Gadget has vanished. Sheís not in the cage. Iíve searched all over the house in case she somehow managed to sneak out when the door was open and I missed her. I havenít heard nor seen a trace or her. Iíve already formed such a close bond with the babies and Gadget is such a joy with her playful, exuberant energy. I donít know what to do 😢

Anyone had this happen before?

Mr Newt had to have a tumor removed recently and while he was recovering got his own cage for a bit and lots of attention from Mommy. As he was spoiled, he got VERY used to coming out whenever he wanted; therefore, he *expected* to come out in the middle of the brand new Doctor Who episode to bother Mom. I looked over to see this staring at me while I was trying to watch it...

They're adorable!  :BlueDumboSmile:
My first rat had a color/pattern a lot like your guy that has the patches of color, and I was told it was called black variegated.

I adopted these two boys from an oops litter a bit ago. Their dad looked to be Siamese and their mom was a black hooded. And all the babies looked like this:

They look a bit agouti in the pics, but I've had agouti rats before and the babies are more gray. I've been trying to figure out what color they are, but I'm not very knowledgeable about that stuff. I guess it's not that important, but I'm just curious.

Their names are Peanut and Pretzel btw :)
