||Two years old|
||St. Paul, Minnesota, USA|
are my two beautiful male rats. Their names are Joey and Sammy. My
name is Shannon, and the rats belong to my boyfriend and I. These are
the first two rats that we got! We now have another cage with three girls. We
also have a hamster, a mouse, and three fishtanks!
Joey is the blondie with a very sweet disposition. He enjoys it when we
let him (and Sammy) out of the cage to run on the couch, although Joey
usually just sprawls out and goes to sleep! We prop up pillows for them
so they can have a little place to hide. He also loves to play and
wrestle! We had recently brought him to the Emergency Vet because his
foot was bleeding very badly. He probably lost about a 1/4 cup of blood
- that's a lot for a little guy like him! It turns out that it was a
torn toenail! When we brought him home, he had a huge bandage on his
foot that looked like a club! It was cute, but that was off in no
time! The vet was expensive, but we love our rats more than the money!
Sammy is a big baby! He likes to come out and run on the couch, but he
absolutely loves it when we pet him and give him lots of attention. He
will usually lie down with us if we keep petting him consistantly. He
loves to be scratched behind his ears and likes to harass his brother
Joey and wrestle with him! They know their names and any sound that is
associated with food! They also know how to climb into their cage! We
absolutely love them and after people meet them, they usually see why!
