________________________


Flat rat is flat. Really flat.

Lorich, siamese seal point hooded mismarked velveteen rat, born june the 1st, 2010 (his eyes are really that dark).

Lorich is my newest boy. He comes from an unwanted litter. His mother was pregnant in a pet store and was about to give birth to her babies, she would soon have become snake food. Fortunately, a girl who was there to buy some bedding found her and took her home :)

Lorich is a sweetheart. He is VERY licky, very cuddly and very playful, the perfect little rat :heart: He already loves me and my boyfriend, he reminds me very much of Arkanys (they have a very similar behavior) except he is a bit braver (he doesn't fear any noise ^^). He loves licking our hands, eating, having his cheeks and belly rubbed, playing, sleeping on my shoulder and tangling my hair :heart:

me again.. this picture was also used for my drawings ... my former comment : Hey this picture is great... I used it as a reference for a drawing... i have a blog and would like to post your pic as the reference... would that be okay with you ? ... It is not for commercial use. It is just for my studies :) .. But it would be online on my blog :)

I think he is saying: "Too tired, I am a train now."
Hehehehe, love all your ratty photo's, they are so gorgeous!
and I think it's really awesome that you take in unwanted litters and rehome them.

You must be sneaky with your camera...  Every time I try to catch one of my boys in Pancake Mode, they notice me and jump up before I get a decemt shot...

Aw, he's adorable!

Also, as a snake owner, I detest live feeding. Bad for the rodent and bad for the snake. I only give mine frozen.

what a little SWEET HEART! All my insides just melted! I would rather have rat than a hamster as a pet (bloody hate hamsters nasty little buggers) but my mum has a hate on for rats... so its just fish for me.... and giant dogs. Where would you suggest buying a pet rat? Did you raise this little guy from infancy or just after he was weened from the mother?

Ohmygod<33 i wish my rat would do that! i have 2 females and the female rats are so much more energetic you cant put them down for a second without them trying to run off :c I wish i had male rats instead, they seem a lot more cuddly and relaxed

pancake rat!!! i love it when they flatten out. well, unless they are flattened out because it is too hot. then you have to give them a nice cold rock to flatten out on.

Can you describe to me the ages of a rat and what details describe each age. I'm having a hard time deciding what age to get a new rat for my two year old male.
