Happy Birthday to Me!
« on: May 09, 2017, 08:37:08 PM »
Funnily enough, I posted on my birthday thread a couple days ago that it was awesome even lurkers like me got a happy birthday wish. I last had rats probably almost 5 years ago now, college and renting kept me from getting more after my boys passed on.

Queue the night of my birthday.... Was wandering the craigslist pet section (I mean, who doesn't?), and saw a listing for two young girl rats being kept in a bird cage on aspen  :confused: so of course I replied. And I picked them up today! They're very pretty, though pretty shy. I'm definitely glad to be back!

Introducing Oleander:






And Foxglove!





I think Foxglove may be a bad rex, she has curly whiskers and patchy fur. Whatever they are, I love them already!  :heart:

I'm seriously so ecstatic to be back in the world of rats! I've never had girls before, so this is going to be a wonderful adventure!

BTW your lurker comment reminded me of something my very shy husband says sometimes. The audience member is an important part of any show. Where would the stars be without them?

CongRATulations!  They are lovely girls, but they look as though they might be a handful.  (Just saying, lol!)  Enjoy!  :thumbsup2: :thumbsup2: :wave2:
