Arkanys 1 - Fancy rat by DianePhotos Arkanys 1 - Fancy rat by DianePhotos
Arkanys, black irish dumbo rex rat, born April the 16th 2010.

He is my newest rattie boy, the sweetest baby rat, the most cuddly, licky, playful and loving boy I've ever had (he can sleep on my boyfriend and I for hours then licks our hands when he wakes up, always asks for cuddles and adores to play with us).
I have always wanted to adopt black or agouti rats (I will have a baby agouti one with standard ears soon too, my favourite color and ear shape :heart: ) but I had never had the opportunity to adopt one, as I do not chose my rescue ratties colors/coat/ear shape at all, I just take them home the way they are. Since Ægir is always asking for rattie friends to play, I thought it would be great to adopt young rats for once (my old ones are not playful enough).

Arkanys comes from an unwanted litter from a rescue doe, Harley, who had been abandonned by her previous owner. The foster family who rescued her didn't seem to know males and female rats shouldn't play on the same area together and the girl who adopted Harley soon discovered that she was pregnant...
I saw a video showing Harley's pups and my boyfriend and I just melt when we saw Arkanys cute little nose and white socks... So we adopted and I must say this rattie is the cutest thingie ever and I can't believe such a small rat has so much love to give :heart:

D'awww. I've seen several rat owners lately, and they all talk about how loving and sweet their rats are. Pictures like this make me want one really bad. XD I don't think it'd go so well with my family, though.

Thank you very much!
Rats make wonderful pets, they have the same behavior as dogs (and they are as clean as cats and play like cats too ^^)

If you take rats someday, please take two from the same sex : they are highly social animals who need a rattie friend to play with ;)

It's all explained here : [link]

hahah I painted a picture of Pestilence in one of my shoes for college ... my teacher said i had the proportions wrong b/c pesty was bigger than my shoe... i said she was wrong.. and offered to bring pesty into school to prove my point... she declined

Haha ^^ Male rats can become huge :)
My Owain weights over 730g, my Bélial is quite big aswell and I guess Ægir will be the biggest rat I've ever had (he's 5 months old and already 560g !!!)

DianePhotos Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2010
They all know their name and come when I call them, they lick my hands just the same, play just the same (they play as cats too), are very affectionate and can let themselves die when their owner leaves for some days... I'm used to call my ratties my "mini-dogs" :)
