    Aww. They are all adorable! I [​IMG] them! Those pictures make me want to go buy a rat, hehe. But my mom says no rodents or reptiles are allowed in her house (and sadly my dad agrees with her) [​IMG]. So first thing when I move out I am getting a rat, haha. [​IMG]

    When I seen the title I had a quick thought of rats but figured you were talking about rat terrier dogs since I've seen people call them that. Didn't actually think it would be rats. They are very cute. Even the hairless one. Seen a pet store around here selling hairless guinea pigs. Those are a sight to see.

    What cute ratties! We had hairless pop up in my current litter. The father had a 50% chance of carrying it, and it was his daughter bred back to him. So he obviously DOES carry it and managed to pass it onto Godiva. [​IMG] The hairless baby is also the runt, so it's so adorably pitiful looking [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone [​IMG]

    Mismarked just means the markings dont match the standard (can be for any marking, not just hooded)

    I've nevdr had a rat bite me and draw blood either, and then even includes when I mess with the babies right after they are born. Rats make such great pets,they are smart, tame, clean and so friendly. I just love them all(I have over 20 in total)
