Fenrir is just the cutest furball ever :heart:
My ratties would endure any flower hat or fruit hat to have cuddles :love:


Fenrir, irish agouti rex rattie, born March, the 8th 2010

I adopted him so Ęgir and Arkanys can have a young friend to play with. He comes from an unwanted litter from a rescue doe who was meant to feed a snake... The snake didnt eat her and she gave birth to 9 babies two day after she has been rescued. She has remained aggressive due to the high stress caused by the snake but her pups are just adorable :heart:
The girl who rescued Fenrir's mother did a great job with the babies, they adore people :heart:

Fenrir is a doll, the most playful rat I've ever had. He fears nothing, loves everybody, takes food in everyone's hand, adores licking people's hands and always climbs on my boyfriend and me. He loves us very much and would do anything to stay on us the whole day, playing with our hands.

He is a gorgeous and very very friendly little boy :love:

I just used photoshop to crop it square (I just removed the extra space on the sides) and sharpen it softly as it lost some details once scaled down.
I guess I lightened a dark spot on the plum too (I don't really remember ^^;)
The original shot is pretty similar to the final version :)
Thanks a lot :hug:

Today sky's 2 litter are going to be separated (< is this right?)
females and male, they are running around playing with each others that's so adorable =D
Now sky can have some rest. She's only a young girl bought in the petstore with males. (I thought my mom said she was only 2-3 months old)

Rats can be pregnant very early : they can already have babies when they are 5 weeks old.
I'd suggest you reading my F.A.Q. about rats linked at the top of the description to avoid having other unwanted babies ;)
Thanks!

and someting. We have a rat... actually 2(these are 2 girls. If I count some boys then it will make 9 rats in total). that are REALLY agressive(they are Not ours! those are for adoption). they bite when you put your finger through the cage and even when you put your hand in the cage when the door is open. Even my mom doesn't want to take them under her shirt. that's the same for the boys. some th dumbo's (2) are nicer but they still bite. (1 of the boys had me in my finger when I watched his brothers in a smaller cage for cleaning their big cage. that is a scar now)
And for the girls the previous owners said they don't bite, yeah we saw. They don't bite ONLY when you wear a handglove!!! and even then!)
the boys are an unwanted litter but they're almost at 1.5 year and they sat in a selfmade cage (in total they sat in that cage with an amount of 30-40 rats) their sisters arent here. but want to 'tame' them a lil bit. especially the girls. the boys wont be adopted that's for sure.

Maybe the only option is to hug them and say we won't hurt ya, but that's a Dangerous one!!

Mhhh, have these rats been abused? They might be scared then of they might have become very territorial, this requires a lot of patience.
Were they hand feed through bars? If so they might think hands are food and bite...

I'd suggest you not trying to catch them but talking a lot to them, adding new toys in their cage, giving them treats (not waiting for them to pick the treats in your hand but putting the treats in their cage avoiding the rats to bite you), moving a lot in front of their cage, etc... Soft music can help too. Most rats are very curious and this usually works pretty well on aggressive rats : they soon start to understand there's no need to bite anymore.

I've heard of a very rare case of severely abused rats who never learnt to trust people again and who remained aggressive until their death but these rats had been beaten almost to death during one year and a half (one of them even had broken bones piercing his skin, the two of them had lost their eyes, it was really shocking :tears:), I guess it's not the same here?

Some rats may also become aggressive for some time when they feel lost because they've moved and have a new home, this usually gets better after one or two months, when they start having new marks ;)


I hope these rats will soon become much nicer!

There are also a few rare cases of rats born aggressive. I had some that way. Two tough guys in a litter of friendly babies from a mom that wasn't supposed to be pregnant! :O
