Sorry, Skittle. I forgot that you've had rats before. Didn't mean to be redundant with info!

The only name I've come up with thus far is Eivor. It's Scandanavian and means "wise gift".

Oooh pics!!! I love rats but have never been allowed them (all the family hate them). She will need a friend, its good that the cage sounds plenty big enough to add another one or two!

Believe it or not, it has a purpose! It's used for regulation of body temperature

And yay, I'd love to see pictures, she sounds lovely. I adore rats.

Haha I love it when they are babies and their tails are really pink. I just don't like it when their tails get gross and brown and dirty looking, but my last one I kept her tail pretty clean and pink for a long time. I don't mind the tails lol
