________________________


Something a bit more artsy than my previous Arkanys shot (the one where he's giving me a kiss) :heart:

Arkanys, black irish dumbo rex rat, born April the 16th 2010.

He is 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 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:

=) if I lived in an actual house and not an apartment I ndeed would have more of these little cuties my longest alive rat was my himalyan named Kyrii I took her everywhere i could we went out in the snow car rides everything she suffered from absesses alot I think it was due to getting her at a horrible petshop that uses their rats fancy and all as snake food I am happy to say that horrible petshop got closed most likely because how inhumane their animals were kept >.> but I hope to see more of your little cuties =D
