    About a month ago I got a pair of female rats from the local human society. They're so freggin' cute! They are white with buff caps and are named Pumpkin and Poppy. [​IMG]
    Currently I'm saving up to get them a four level cage I saw on Petco.com but you know. It takes some time.

    Absolutely adorable! :love
    Reminds me of when I first got my two boys, they were just about that size.

    Rats can be awesome pets. My daughter had Henrietta who lived to be 3.5 years old. She was a black hooded rat.

    They really are awesome little pets :3 eventually I want to get more but for the time being I'm okay with just two XD
    I think black hooded rats are so pretty. I'd like to have one of those one day XD

    I used to have a couple rats, but they passed away. Yours are so darling cute! Now I wanna put some bedding in the old cage, and jump over to the pet store and get some more. AHHH! Must. Resist. The. Urge.

    Awesome! I had a rat as a pet when I was about 10 years old. Big ol' grey/black wolf rat. He lived 4 years. Very smart.

    Love rats! Had a rat who would come when we called. She had a super big rat crush on my husband, so I had to watch out for her. ;). Your girls look like female versions of my first rat ever, who was the same color. Have fun with the little cuties!
