In my last Sunday Post I mentioned we were getting rats, so today I am going to show you some pictures of them. We got 4 rats and we named them: Smarties, Snickers, Skittles and Pita. They are all females.
So you might wonder why three are called after sweets and one after a bread, well we did plan on only taking 3 rats. So we came up with the 3 candy names and then I decided I wanted another one and she is from a different mother and we ran out of sweets that started with a S, so we decided to choose something entirely different and then I thought of Pita. I know it’s a bit strange.
So here is who is who is:
The darks grey ones are Smarties and Snickers. Smarties has a white line on her belly, but it’s actually realy difficult to tell these two apart, because they look so much alike. So often I just call one Smarties or Snickers, without knowing who it actually is.
The yellow like rat with the darker nose is Skittles
The light grey one is Pita
And here are the pictures:
Ohmygosh, so cute!!
Thanks! They are so adorable!
They are SO cute!
I agree, they are really cute. Even I ended up sitting in front of their cage watching them a few times (okay maybe more than a few times).
Aww they are so cute, my daughter had one who recently passes and it broke her heart. They are quite affectionate and smart.
Unfortunately they usually only live 2-3 years :(. I am already loving all four of them and can’t imagine how hard it must be if one dies. They are so cute and intelligent and I like rearranging their cage every time after I cleaned it.
