:bulletred::bulletorange::bulletyellow::bulletgreen::bulletblue: WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT RATS? :bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletyellow::bulletorange::bulletred:
:star: READ MY F.A.Q. (handling, care, behavior, etc...)
:star:

________________________


Lohengrin - British blue self standard eared rat born March, the 6th 2009 (he looked American blue when he was a baby but he became very dark some weeks later).

Adopted from an unwanted litter (the girl who gave him to me had adopted a little blue rattie girl who gave birth to 12 blue babies, although the person who had given her this rattie had told her she wasn't pregnant…)

He's a cutie, very sweet and playful, and he loves licking everyone's fingers :love:
He's quite exclusive though.


Ægir - American blue self dumbo rat, born january 2010

He's a doll, a very playful boy :heart:
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.



Both used to hate each other when I first introduced them after Ægir's quarantine weeks. Lohengrin bit Ægir several times although I introduced them the right way (several times in neutral places, etc... Lohengrin never bit Ægir in those places, only in the cage - which was of course fully cleaned each time so no smell of any rat could remain).
Lohengrin was actually jealous of Ægir since he seemed to think I wouldn't love him anymore as I had adopted a new rattie. He soon understood that it wasn't right and they are now great friends. Poor Ægir lost the tip of his tail though (a very small piece, but he lost the tip of his tail nevertheless, I couldn't manage to make it heal although he got antibiotics and disinfectant :(

The color of the chiffon is so beautiful with the color of the rats. It totally conveys the dreamy quality of the sleepy rats. The only suggestion I guess I would have is to try and do a softer round focus around them. You have quite a bit on the left side and lower edges. Maybe try a little more on the top and right edges. Not too close to the adorable faces but to complete the dreamy feeling of the other edges. I don't know how you got them all wrapped up like that, but it is truly very sweet. Very well done.
What do you think?
