So.. we got a shipment of little girl ratties in a while ago.. and I've been planning to get a new girl.. I had only 2 girls left and one is young and hyper while the other is older and not hyper.. I wanted to get a new girl for my younger one so she would have a playmate and have someone to live with when my older girl passes.. so when I got a shipment of gals at the store I nabbed one! heehee..
After getting her I found out someone had a couple girls they had to get rid of.. so I took them too.. hah! I'm insane I know.. :p
So now I have 3 new rattie girls.. the 2 I got from the girl seem really... I don't know.. off? Their balance is bad.. they have a blank look in their eyes.. they're kind of thin.. I'm thinking they may have been abused.. poor things.. but they are REALLY sweet and cuddly and licky.. I love them all!!!
Well I'll stop rambling and post some pics of them!!

This is Snowball.. one of the 2 'rescues'.. She has a bit of a head tilt.. nothing serious. and is a little more reactive than the other girl.. according to their previous owner they're both about a year and a half old..




And this is Nibbler.. She has really bad balance.. when she climbs in the cage she randomly falls off things.. very blank look to her.. but she is just a sweetie! Very cuddly and loves giving kisses


Many more coming!!!

Nibbler again


And now for my new baby girl.. Her name is Speranza.. which means Hope in italian.. BP came up with it for me and I LOVE it! I like it so much because she showed up at work the day after Ivy passed.. we weren't even supposed to get a shipment of critters come in till next week sometime but here she is! The name also reminds me of my first rattie Spinoza who was completly amazing as well..
Here first is her cute cute little feets!!!! Heehee






I know I know.. do I need that many pics of feet?? But I can't help myself! I LOVE little rattie feets!! Heehee..

Yet more coming!

Thanks :) And thanks Renee.. (((((HUGS)))))
Losing Ivy was so very hard on me.. and made it hard to even play with my other ratties.. especially my remaining two girls.. whenever I'd look in the cage I'd think of Ivy and wish she was still there.. made me so sad.. I still miss her and wish she was still with me.. but I think those 3 girls came into my life at the perfect time.. they really have helped me deal with losing her.. and have helped me realize how wonderful my ratties that are still with me are.. Thank god for critters is all I can say! Without them I'd be so lost :)

do you show?! that little girl has a GORGEOUS hood/back stripe! its rare to see an unbroken dorsal! specially on the cinamons/buffs.

I LOVE ratties.
weve had 6 in our life, origionally i had 2 females, gizmo and midnight, gizzy was a black hooded no dorsal, and midnight was a black berkshire.
then we got 2 males, loki was a champagne, and merlin a black berkshire, and 2 females, Suki an albino and Alice a blue hooded dumbo.

its amazing how much personality they squish into those little ratty bodies, and yes rattie feet are more than tooooo cute!
i miss my little squishes!

Oh, I'm so happy for you Squidbert. Can I ask you about your rattie friends? I had hamsters many years ago and would walk about with one or more down my jumper for most of the day (giving my mother the heebie-jeebies). I've never hads rats though. Do they recognise you as their human or are they hand-reared and more or less friendly with everyone? When you say they are licky, do you mean as in grooming each other or do they lick you? If so, is that affection, grooming, for salt or what?

They are lovely and I'm sure Ivy is happy you've brought them home.

Aww.. thanks everyone! :) I'm glad you enjoyed seeing them all!

FoxyWench, I don't show my rats.. I'd love to.. but there aren't even dog shows here so rat shows are pretty out of the question.. :p My new little girl Speranza actually came from the store so I'm not even sure where she came from.. but she sure is a beautie! I've had some stunning ratties..some blue dumbo rexes with amazing coats.. I have some cinnamon rexes right now.. one really nice show worthy hairless.. she didn't have a hair on her at all! Sadly there's no chance to show here.. poopie!

skyeboxer, ratties are just amazing in every way! They are really licky and kissy in that they kiss and groom me.. and they can be so cuddly.. most of mine will curl up and sleep in my sleeve or hood.. or even just on my lap.. They're very playful when they're young especially.. mine love to chase my hands.. when they're out I drag my hand over the bed and they chase it like a little kitten.. when they 'catch' me I flip them over and tickle their bellies.. they love it! Then they get back to the chase :p Even some of my older fat squishy boys still love that game..
And as soon as I walk in the room they're happy to see me.. hanging off the cage with those "play with me' eyes.. sigh.. they're just wonderful!! :)
