Oh shrewbie they are so handsome <3 what a beautiful trio of ratty excellence.

Could only find one photo, this is one of the rats I’ve had- he was called The Artist Formally Known As and he was great. Such a friendly little fellow.

Our girls. We’re a bit worried about Barbie (the girl on the left) as she’s really seemed to be slowing down recently :frowning:

I disturbed them to take the photo and did not come bearing food. I am in trouble.

They alternate between sleeping there, and sleeping in a hammock lower down, or another one made from the leg of an old pair of jeans. Always together though! Off to google a Sputnik!

Are we allowing rat relatives in, for example… gerbils?

Apparently it’s a year today since I arrived home to find we’d rescued two rats in need of rehoming. They may absolutely hate being handled (except by the teenage boy who rat-sits for us sometimes) and spend most of their time fighting, but they can be super cute :heart:

Omg :sob: I love it when rats/gerbils do this, it is so so cute. Do rats also sleep in little piles? My absolute favourite gerbil thing (along with gerbil yawns and when they put a paw on you very assertively to show dominance)

They do :smiley: her sister was off stealing the apricots she’d hidden earlier in the day.
