Another high key shot of Lorich, Thorim and Owain.

Thorim is the one on the right, Lorich is using Owain as a pillow and Owain is asking for cuddles putting his head below Lorich's and Thorim's heads :heart:

Thorim and Lorich, siamese seal point hooded mismarked velveteen rats, born june the 1st, 2010 (their eyes are really that dark), they are brothers (I've also got another little one from the same unwanted litter : Thjazi, who's got standard coat).

They are the most adorable rats ever : playful, cuddly and licky to death, they'd do ANYTHING to show how much they love their humans :aww:

They come from an unwanted litter. Their 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 :)

Owain, himalayan seal-point hooded standard rat, born june 2008

He pretty much looks like a siamese but is an Himalayan : he was almost all white when I got him, the points just started to appear and there was no creamy tinge at all in his fur. He became much darker than I would have imagined!
He's my biggest rattie, he suffers from metabolic troubles which made him obese (there's unfortunately no way to make him lose weight without causing damages to his kidneys, so he'll remain fat during his whole life ^^;). He is a big and very cuddly boy who loves to lick everyone's fingers (especially when one scratches his back ^^)

Thjazi didn't want to pose with his brothers and friend so I let him play with Fenrir while I was photographing them :)

May I ask you if I can use this as a reference for a drawing?
I'm bad at drawing rats and I wanted to draw my past one a picture in memory of her and her siblings and this pose is just too perfect.

I won't be bitchy if you say 'no', these are your rats.

All of your white rats on white background photos are wonderful. It's a great concept and makes for really cool imagery. I like how the pink ears, noses, and feet stand out when everything else is all white.

They look so tired and sleepy.
I think this works better than if they were pure white. The little splotches on their face make them more interesting in contrast to the simple background, and it worked out really well.
It must have been hard to get them to sit still and pose like that. I had a rat of my own, and I know how much she liked to waddle around and escape from her cage.
