hi! my jumbo rat,hydrox has found a new game to go with his new giant cage, i was latching his door the other day and decided to use a small rope to tie at bottom corner and as i was tieing it hydrox kept grabbing it and pulling it id let go hed let go id pick it up and begain tieing hed grab it and tug a war agian:eek:
never mind his own rope in the cage its not the same when you can play tug a war:D he also likes darring the cat liza as does she :eek: they will sit and dare the other one to stick a nose orpaw through and he,l grab the fur betwen her toes :D
she on the other hand will wait for him to stick his nose out or lay near edge andreach in and pata tat tat!:p this maks hydrox really po-d:mad: so he has too get his two cents in too;)
liza has learned to watch her tail in the cage as well:eek:

LOL, my rats are to young to be taken and help alot (they are only 4 months). I take them outside and open the cage and pet them. I also hold them alot but in my room so if they get away no cats will eat them. I love rats, and might be geting one from my neighbor down the street. My rats Names are Melony and Hope. They are Hooded rats. Melony has a grey hood and Hope has a balck hood. Then there bass color is white. I hope to hear more about your little sweetie!

I am goign to be buying them a new 3 story wire cage soon, I know they will abosolutly LOVE it. Your rats sound adorable!

How great of you to rescue a rat! I am planning on rescueing a guinie pig someday, when Chewy (my puppy)gets older.

2 of my ratties love to go bunny chasin'. My albino male is named nikolia. he is a very very big boy. his favorite pastime is to chase and jump on and otherwise generally harass my poor nancy(rabbit). esme, my love of my life, is more into stealth and grace. she cleverly uses any structure within my room be it a fan or whatnot to sneak up upon nancy and pounce upon her with deadly accuracy lol. poor nanci is put out to find a place to hide that is free from my ratties.

SUJEI: I live right outside Rochester, in Fairport. My 2 rats love to play the same game (chasing & pouncing) but on my dogs. Do you breed rats? What breeds do you have now? I have a siamese straight haired dumbo rex and a self black curly rex dumbo! I am looking for a good hairless female.
