Rats Update!

I can’t believe it’s been so long since my last post – almost 10 months!
My apologies to anyone who regularly visits the site for neglecting to update it, I intend to rectify that right now! I found it difficult to write about the rats for a while after Shy-Shy died, because he was the reason I started this project and he was the last of the original “Lovely Rats” gang. I have just the two reprobates left: Dublin and Jinx, and here they are looking their usual silly selves:

There is nothing new to report, only that the two of them are still the silliest looking rats you have ever seen. Dublin has mastered the “Daft-But-Cute-As-As-Teeny-Fluffy-Baby-Kitten” look and Jinx continues charge around the place in a frantic but slightly idiotic way, occasionally pouncing on his brother for no apparent reason. Of course Dublin shrugs it off (he has some sense) and is pacified with yoghurt drops and reassuring scritches from the Rat Mother (me) :)

Today my lovely rats have been mostly eating fruit and nuts.

  1. Nice to know there’s other rat owners in the highlands :) I am a new owner, my two are a month old, Ive raised hamsters my whole life and love them to peices so I decided to take on a challange :) i can’t wait till they mature and become docile little babies like my hamsters have been :)

  2. Hi Eilidh -thanks for having a look at my site – there’s some hints and tips in the “handling and taming” section, but it’s pretty much the same as taming hamsters, so you’ll instinctively know what to do anyway :) Nice to meet someone up here with rats :)
