Ægir, American blue self dumbo rat, born january 2010
This is my newest rattie boy ! A very cuddly little boy who adores sleeping on my knees or in my sweater (he seems to have a sweater-sleep fetish ) He's a doll ! He has become VERY playful lately He comes from an unwanted litter, I couldn't resist his cuteness and adopted him. My boyfriend named him Ægir after a Giant from the Norse mythology.

cannot stop staring at him I have two rats now and a baby in this blue color is coming pretty soon , love the photograph by the way, specially the out of focus indepth effect, it drives you so easily into his cute eyes
One of my favourite ratty colours... and a dumbo! The perfect ratty combo for me! Hehehe.. we don't get Dumbo rats here in NZ, nor do we get that lovely blue colouring! Love the expression on his face. Your photography is VERY inspiring! Thank you for sharing!!
Aww! I love how his whiskers are splayed about.... ^w^
My sister's rat loved to crawl around and burrow in our sleeves and such whenever we wore sweatshirts (though she often dive-bombed down our collars any time she pleased, scratching up our necks with her sharp little claws... XD), and she loooooved to romp around in our clean laundry. >XD
