I have not seen anyone mention any pet rats, so I am curious! Am I the only Rat slave on BYC? I can't be, they are too awesome and loving to be passed up. So if you love rats, splurge about them here. I have 8 Ratties, 6 bucks and 2 does. For the boys.. The oldest is Bedington, he's 1 year old. He's a blue hooded and a total squishbug. Second is Smeegol, he's about 8 months old. He's a hairless. :] Then we have Paxil & Pacey, they are brothers who are 10 weeks old, they are also hairless. Can't forget Wilko! He's our giganto buck, he is 9 weeks old and already more than 1/2 the size of Bedington. His sire is 1.3lbs and his mom is also a big girly, so we are expecting him to be in the range of 1.5lbs. Wilko is a black Irish Rex. And then, last but not least, is Sambo. He's our new little (well, not little, he's full grown but we don't know his age. I would say approx. 8 - 12 months). We actually added him to our family last night. He's a dumbo black berkshire, and he's hairless too. He's currently a bit depressed. Thennn, we have our two girlies. (Well, more so my fiance's) They are Agitha, who is a mismarked black masked dumbo and her sister Hoax who is an odd eyed mismarked beige capped dumbo. (Did you get all that?). They are both about 5 months old. Tomorrow I am hoping to get to some fabric stores so I can sew up some new hammocks for them since it's getting a bit chilly.
