Máni on ice (well... aluminium foil actually).

Máni, little hooded mismarked blazed agouti standard rat, born november 2008

Rescued from a breeder who was giving away her breeding stock…
He was afraid of humans, very very weak, sick and he was the same size as a 4 weeks old rat although he was 6 month old when I took him home…
I also took his brother home (I'm rescuing pet rats as a foster family until I can find them a good home and I sometimes adopt them)
He had been severely mistreated and didn't trust any human being.
He's now a big rattie, a very very affectionate boy, cuddly and playful who loves to lick my fingers. He's a sweetie, I love him very much! He is also quite the smart rat :aww:

I love success stories.
It's heart-warming how you took him home and managed to make him trust humans again.
He's such a handsome boy too!

I went into pets at home last week and saw quite a few little ratties looking for homes, I wanted to take them all home with me, they're so cute! Once I have my own house (instead of a flat), with plenty of space I'm hoping to adopt a couple :D

He's very handsome. I love his markings and he has beautifully shaped head.
I also never would have guessed that was aluminium foil- it's a beautiful effect!

Hey! Wonderful picture. And btw, I wanted to tell you that I found a couple of pictures on this website, and they were yours. The website had their watermark on it too. Just thought you'd want to know.

Heres the link if you want it. [link]
