Well, if you're wondering where that 7th rat popped into the gang, shes my new rattie. She was going to just be a foster rattie until I could find her a new home, since her owner was moving from NY to HI and didnt know what to do with "Hester", so I offered to take her. Well, shes such a sweetheart, and I just cant give her up. I mean, what's 1 more rattie anyway?? She's only getting along with the other rats out of the cage; as soon as I put her in their cage, all hell breaks loose. So, I'm starting over and going to do a slower introduction process....Anyway, on Sunday they all got a bath....Yay! Pictures! My moms digital camera was broken for 6+mths and I was dieing without it, so she bought me one last month for my birthday!!! (sorry the pix are big!)

This is the only decent picture of all 7 of them together....from left to right:
Hester, Jag, Angel (kicking away Sam...haha...she's not fond of the boys), Sam, Star, Deuce, Hailey


All the other pictures are here: http://community.webshots.com/album/68931944Yyhttw

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think! hehe  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

I didn't know there were all square ratties with identical red "X"s in the middle. ::)

I see one pic, and it's absolutely adorable! However, the others have red X's in them. :BlueDumboBigEyes:

They actually look like they're enjoying it!  What did you bribe them with?

Suprisingly they didnt mind it....I guess the temperature was just right or they liked the shampoo in the water to make sort of a bubble bath effect. hehe...because they usually get washed in the sink, and that doesnt go too well....my hairless was eating the bubbles, it was so funny! I'm assuming this is fine if she eats the bubbles since I got this shampoo from my vet for like $15, and it's a soap-free shampoo!

Wow..that's incredible. They really look as if they are having a great time.  I wonder if my ratties would do the same?!  ..Hmm..Most likely not.  Great pictures!

Soap free bubbles?
What brand is it? Maybe I can get some from my vet sometimes and try the same thing for my ratties.

You're a brave brave woman, bathing 7 rats all at once. I can no longer do that, they've learned to jump straight out of the tub and I end up with a bunch of wet angry rats running around crazily in my bathroom :P I'm surprised you got all of them to sit still for you! ;D

Can I borrow a couple for my rat bath page? Full credit, all that. I just like to have a "Drowned Rat Gallery" to go with the cheeky bathing directions.  ;)

They were pretty good, but at one point Hester ran up my arm and got stuck in my hair. It took me a couple minutes to get her out. Ahhh! hehe

  • why do rat noses fit so perfectly in your ears...
it's soo rare to get "water" rats. (you know, the kind that would jump in the toilet just because they love to splash around)

sssoooo cute! cute, cute, cute, cute, cute!

heres a stupid question -- sam and jag ARE neutered, right? sam looked intact in some of the pics  ???

anyways, maybe bathing ALL my rats at once would make it easier on them -- what do you think? they certainly dont appreciate baths normally...

AWWWW! Jag looks SO happy! I'm so glad he's got such a great ratmom as you  :BlueDumboSmile: .
His mom and brothers send their love and hellos... And Chev would like to let him know he's getting a foster buddy too! I talked to a friend who's sending a beige hooded boy to my safe keeping, it looks like he'll be staying too.
I LOVE your new girl, she's so cute! Is she top eared? Otherwise she looks a LOT like Hailey in the pictures.
Hehe, Chevy had to suffer through a bath today too... poor baby! :BlueDumboBigEyes:

No, they're not neutered...but I did keep a real close eye on them. i never let them out of my sight while they were in the tub. None of the boys even tried anything, they were just swimming around having fun.
