Sorry for submitting two Ęgir shots the same day but I love this one so much I had to share :)
Backlighting + colors, I love how soft and comfy the whole thing looks :heart:

Ęgir, American blue self dumbo rat, born january 2010

He is very cuddly little boy who adores sleeping on my knees or in my sweater (he seems to have a sweater-sleep fetish :slow: )
He's a doll ! :heart:
He comes from an unwanted litter, I couldn't resist his cuteness and adopted him. My boyfriend named him Ęgir after a Giant from the Norse mythology.

If you look in the description, she says that he's a dumbo rat =]
I think the whole Fancy Rat title is supposed to be her album title.

I love rats! I used to have a white-and-tan rat named Giuseppe. He was adopted from another owner who could no longer keep him. I loved him. I miss him. He was such a great pet. Unfortunately, he developed a major tumor on his side and we had to put him down. But I had some beautiful pictures of him that my father took. There very much like these shots. Portraiture of a rat. So cute. This shot is absolutely adorable. Your making me want another rat!
