    My rats

    I thought you guys might like to see the latest addition to my family, my two rats Oliver (black berkshire) and Finley (Agouti hooded).

    They're about 4 months old, brothers, and from a rescue. Finley is very sweet, Oliver is more nervous and has bitten me twice for trying to pick him up. Hopefully he'll come around, but if I get bitten again I'm going to consider having him neutered, because it helps with aggression as well as marking.


    Yawning.



    We're sweepy...


    And here's their cage, with oh-so-manly pink cage liners. It's a Martin's 695 if anyone's curious. All the hammocks were made by me.

    About a month. They started out in a shelter, but were in a rescue/foster home from maybe 4 weeks onwards. He was one of the more shy brothers, but the rescue lady thought he would do better in a home like mine where there aren't a lot of other rats, so he gets more attention. I'm going to see how he does for another month, and if I'm still getting bitten I'm going to see if a neuter helps.
