________________________


An Autumn themed background for Feirefiz and his beautiful mother, Stella. These two are just too cute!

Feirefiz, fawn hooded standard rat, born October the 23rd, 2010.

A very good friend of mine has taken care of a litter of 12 ratties which were meant to be used to feed snakes... she is searching for good homes for them and I went to take some shots of the babies to try to make some of my friends' hearts melt.
These babies are just too cute, very very sweet and cuddly, very friendly too, even with people they don't know :heart:
Feirefiz is the laziest one of them, he'd rather sleep than eat or play... He LOVES cuddles ! :slow:


Stella, black berkshire standard rat (with a spot on her head), born April 2010.

She is a shy but sweet rat, I love her! She wasn't used to be handled at all as she was only used to "produce snake food" but she soon became quite sweet and slowly learns to trust people. She even asked for cuddles yesterday, she allowed me to pet her for at least 10 minutes, she was even shattering of happiness :heart:

my friend used to have one of those. i remember watching it groom itself every five seconds...i guess that's why they're called fancy rats.

If you don't mind, what does the name Feirefiz mean?

:icondianephotos:
DianePhotos Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2010
Feirefiz is a character from the Arthurian legend, there's everything about him here : [link]
He was meant to be Parzival half-brother. I had a fawn rat named Parzifal, so I thought it would be nice to call another fawn rattie Feirefiz (although the original Feirefiz wasn't a redhead but black and white).

This is such a sweet picture!! I always look forward to seeing your new work, but this one gave a little tug at my heart strings. :) I think the warm colors you used set a nice tone to it as well. It makes me miss when my rats were alive!

I'm glad Stella begins to trust people. She's so beautiful. Yesterday your moment together must have been very awesome. Feirefiz, on the other hand, is more adorable than everything else :D I love this picture, your new camera shows all tiny details, I guess you can focus on more things now. Stella's whole head is sharp and not just her eyes - well done! :heart:

The colours here are dangerously close to rainbow sherbet. :chew: It plays off well with their ears, and the leaves draw in a wonderful texture. The whiskers are also cutely defined here. I just want to eat them up! :love:

One of my females is a black berkshire. But she's a dumbo, so so she looks a little different.:D

I love the one you decided to keep. How do you say his name?
