|This is my sweet timid girl.
This is Amelia.
She is a Hooded gray variagated blazed rattie. At least that is the best description of her. She looks more hooded
than bareback but if you think differently let me know for sure. At first Amelia didn't want to be touched or picked
up. I could pet her but with caution. She was very very timid and shy. I wondered what kind of life before
me she had had at age 6 months acting so nervous. Well, on July 2, 2005 I discovered why. Not I nor the pet store
knew she was pregnant. She delivered 9 babies. One did not survive due to illness or born dead. I do not
know. Nature took its course. She did however deliver 8 healthy babies. She is a good mother and has since
changed her ways. I handle her more now than ever and she is becoming less and less nervous. She is very gentle
and does have a good temperament. She knows her name and loves to snuggle under my neck close for security. Her
babies are adoreable and well behaved.
|My cute little Molly at 5 weeks old.
This is Molly sitting on my younger son's shoulder, Kobe.
I brought her home because she was too cute to say No! Yes, bad habit. She is so sweet and she was the third rattie
to be a licker. She is a fancy rat as most will say. She is a gray blazed berkshire. She was the first "fancy"
rat to lick me. I had my two dumbos that licked me that I think is noted for dumbos to do so but I was so overjoyed
when Molly snuggled in my arms and licked my hand. She is very smart as most rats are. She knows her name like
the others. She is housed with Amelia's babies and Lacy for now because Lilly doesn't like her with several attempts
of introductions all failing with Lilly pinning Molly and Molly squeaking helplessly. That I couldn't have Molly endure
and said well, you and Lilly can't hang together in or outside of the cage. So we have seperate play times for them.
