Arkanys 3 - Fancy rat by DianePhotos Arkanys 3 - 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:

Sorry to hear about your rat... :(

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

It's all explained here : [link]

Thanks for your nice words :hug:
