Rat appreciation thread!

  1. I know I can't be the only one here who loves rats. Some people think they're dirty, but they're actually very clean, rats bond w/ each other by bathing one another (amongst other social behaviors). I've got females cause they're more energetic, and they're a blast to watch / play with. post pics of yours :) :smoke:

    the play area - my bed with an old ratty (no pun intended) comforter and sheet set thrown on it (not chewing through my nice sheets!) always a work in progress, as stuff gets chewed through, and i try to spoil the beasts

    squeaks - my dumbo's companion...a dumbo as well

    the newest member of the family, replacing my dumbo. blue rat haven't named her yet. can't get too many good pics of her cause she's full of energy. thankfully they get along very well, don't have to mess around with 2cages and gradually socializing them. HUGE RELIEF! (plus its instant entertainment)

    my dumbo who died last weekend at the young age of 2-2 1/2. she always had respiratory problems and they'd come and go, but she seemed to be doing better and then one day i noticed she was really unresponsive and lethargic and later that evening she died. RIP

    [edit]: and that cage in the background isn't their home, its an old one, threw the wheel in to see if the new rat will actually use it (0/2 so far), and so they can get water

    [edit#2]:
