Hi! I'm new! meet my ratties! :)
« on: August 01, 2010, 10:41:29 PM »
Hi everyone!  I'm new here, and just adopted a pair of baby boy rats named Sully and Clyde.  I had a rat for close to 4 years when I was younger, and he was just fantastic! His name was Casper (though I called him Ratty, not to creative, also have Catley the cat, haha). I got him when I was 13, I went to a petshop after school to pick up cat litter for my mom, and the man there was moving this batch of fluffy white things into a a tank marked "feeders", one managed to escape and scurried across the table, up my sweater, and nestled into my hair - needless to say it was love at first snuggle and there was no way he was going to be anything's dinner... So he came home and proceeded to be a perfect pet for a little over 3 1/2 years... He learned tricks, came when called, happily hopped onto my hand to come out of his cage, sat on my shoulder for walks, watched TV with me, nibbled my homework, and did everything else a kid could want from a furry companion :).  Anyway, now that I just moved into a small-pet-friendly dorm my boyfriend and I decided to adopt 2 ratties, now knowing that they really need to be in pairs :).  These two little guys came home yesterday.  Sully is already convinced I'm his own personal human, and loves to run up my jeans and into a sweatshirt pocket or up to my shoulder and into my hair!  Clyde is a little shyer, but is warming up to us and is just too cute!
Anyway, just thought I'd introduce myself and my new ratty boys, as this forum has been so helpful to me in learning and educating myself before deciding to bring ratties into my life again!  Here is Sully, laying on me while I read!

And here is Clyde, briefly paused to catch his breath after scampering around the rat-proofed bathroom :)

Thanx!  They are almost 6 weeks old, and still quite tiny and fluffy!   :BlueDumboSmile:
