:star: READ MY F.A.Q. (handling, care, behavior, etc...)


That's one of the very few shots I'm really proud of. There is very few editing here, only some slight level corrections to enhance a bit the blue tones (nothing very noticeable actually). I also removed some grain on the background and cropped it square by removing some space at the top and bottom (not on the sides).
I love this shot so much I think I'll have to print it for myself...

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 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:

This is an all around enchanting feast for the eyes. The diversity of colors against the solid background, the placement of the objects, and the pose couldn't be more perfect. This is eye-catching, appealing, pleasing, and simply delightful. You have accomplished an outstanding feat of surrounding a stunningly beautiful Siamese fancy rat with colorful splendor. Your vision, originality, and intentions with this pose have certainly succeeded in conveying to the world that fancy rats are creatures to be adored, admired, and loved. I have no doubt you are really proud of this, you should be. Well done. I love it.

Our heroic rat finds an elegant feast right by the great treasure trove he had unearthed.

But he eats warily, for a magical genie or a sword-wielding enemy may suddenly appear out of nowhere. :O

This is wonderful!!! I didn't know rats could be so graceful, and photogenic! I can hear music when I see this photo, and it's this rat singing "I'm too sexy for my fur" XD

Seeing these pictures makes me think about getting a rat. I've never seen them as social and playful animals. But apparently they are? Nice pictures! :)

Your rats all look so awesome especially considering some of them are rescue-rats :) The photos are awesome too

I've had hamsters and gerbils and mice, but never rats. Would have been nice but my mom doesn’t like rats at all... mice were still semi-okay especially since she never had to take care of them. My "rodent-hobby" ended pretty sadly when we got some parasites from a bag of food we bought from a local shop... First died two mice, then the gerbils... I lost eight gerbils in two months. We did see a vet and were given some ivermectin that should basically kill pretty all parasites from their skin. Unfortunately it appeared that this special trait or species were immune to it and it basically didnt take the acaroids out more than for two days or so. Yup, we moved the animals from room to another and used insect poison to that old room twice and did the whole thing again and again and again during one year but since I live in an old house the parasites practically took the blood they wanted, then we used another well-working medicine (stronghold) that lasts for two months. The mites then went for a nice "holiday" in between the structures of our house and came back for more when the stronghold's hold gave in... There was really nothing to stop it until all the animals were dead or humanly euthanized.
After this horrible mite-show I've had just a few gerbils (three who survived the whole thing... they didn’t live too long, I assume that was thanks to the heavy medication we had to use so much + one that moved out from my friend's house since she had to offer a home for one cat) but now I have none. Maybe I'll have a mice or two when I move out :)

Forgive my typos. =) *TheN he, of course is just adorable. =3 Accidentally left out the "N". It's wonderful to see someone that appreciates rats as well. They make wonderful pets and in my opinion, are as intellegent as we.

Well, at least me. *lol*
My Ginseng, ((Ting-Ting, was her nickname)) used to know how to control me with her cuteness... She was so smart and ever so loving.
God bless her soul.
Wikitt Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2010
First,wow.... Your photography blows my mind.... This piece is so colorful, such a nice choice of "back-ground" for Lorich! And the he, of course is just adorable. I'll probably end up favoriteing your entire gallery. :love:

What is his, or her name?

Lorich is siamese, not albino, hence his darker nose and eyes ;)
Thank you :aww:
