Ok here's my post in this... My fiance and I have rats!! Cats too, but so far no one has posted any rats so I figure I'll be the first! :flick:

These are a Christmas photo shoot my fiance asked me to do with them, We have a naked rat Named May, a black one with few white markings, Peanut, and a cream colored ratty, her name is chai. They are each right around 1 year and 9 months old, so they are getting up there in age, still very spritely though!

May (The nekked one) is crazy, she licks first, asks questions later, and we have kind of labeled her a "rodentist" because she takes any opportunity she can get to try and get in your mouth to clean your teeth! Bleh!

Chai is the smart one of the group, she seems to understand things pretty well, and could probably get her cage door open if she was strong enough.

Peanut is timid, she hides a lot, even though she's given plenty of love and attention, she seems to prefer when we just leave her be!

Love all the Rats, they make great pets especially compared to creatures like hamsters & gerbils.

Oh I know.. Ditto, shes the best mannered one I have, she comes when called, uses a litter pan fully. The two new girls are learning form her, but the odd eye (Evee) one is still a bit on the skidish side. Shes gotten a lot better in just a weeks time though, its amazing.

One guy I know had a rat that was so well trained, that when he said 'bed time' the rat ran up the stairs, climbed on to his and his wife's bed, and got into the night time sleeping cage next to their bed. They never had him in the cage if they where home, he used the litter pan as well.

I am hoping to get Ditto trained a little bit more, some extra tricks, jumping threw hoops, and things like that just to keep her stimulated.

I have a bunch of photos to share.


Blue, russian blue rat


No Name yet, American Blue Dumbo


Ziva, Pineapple Green Cheek Conure


Abby, Spider Ball Python. She is bigger now, she was only about a month old in that photo. I need to get some new photos of her.


The Girls. I need an updated photo. Two have passed, and I have gotten two more. Maddy(brown, rip), Paige(black long hair) Chloe (light yellow, rip) and Mo-Mo(grey and white). I also have a male piggy named Jack, his friend Nick passed a couple of weeks ago.


Stubbs, bearded dragon.

I have some more pics I will put into another post.

Nevada, German Shepherd. She is nine now, had heart surgery when she was 9 months old.



Shorty, Basset Hound. He thinks Nevada is his girlfriend(and he is NOT a basset, he is a shepherd). Nevada thinks he is a pain in the butt.



Vegas, half lab/half english pointer. He doesn't swim, won't retrieve and is afraid of smaller animals. All smaller animals. And big dogs, and small dogs. He also doesn't like wet grass. And he sleeps in a king sized bed. He's not spoiled at all.


Sebastian



Kenny, he is the ruler of the house. He is about 13/14 years old now.


LG, he is the baby of the bunch. And the biggest.


Lily


Jade talking. She is a big mouth.


Phoebe with LG when he was a kitten.


Shorty, LG and Jade. Doing what they do best.


Phebs being a good mommy. She took care of LG and Jade when we got them like they were her own kittens. we got them at different times. Jade was only about 4 weeks old. LG was older, maybe 6 weeks old. He was dumped. Kenny was also dumped as a kitten. Each one has their own story. But it would take up a lot of room to write each one.

Rocky is our new Maine Coon kitten (although he's getting big quick!) that is obsessed with laying on his back. Although my wife says it's me who's obsessed with him laying on his back. I'm also convinced he's plotting to murder me.



Felix is our lovable Ragdoll. Very docile, gentle, and cuddly. Almost not a cat, has almost no instinct, and would stand zero chance at survival. He's sweet.



Oscar is our orange and white neurotic lover. He is very obsessive with stuff. His latest thing is running water and the sink. He didn't notice it for 8 years, and now it consumes him.

This is Betty, but we usually call her Boopie. She has a fetish for paper products.



But she's really sweet.



This is Chuckie, or Chuckaboo. He loves to be the center of attention.



But he's also crazy



And this is Charlie, but we call him Doo Doo. He's our baby







Sorry I'm that annoying parent with photos of their kids in their wallet. I love my furbabies!!

Oh I love seeing all the pictures:)

Most of my internet time is spent on a couple dog forums:redface: I have had dogs my whole life, and while I love all my animals, dogs are my passion.

Here is my old man Marley - he is not doing well this winter:( Just turned 13


This is Ivy - my only non rescue. She is turning 4 next week


Qcumber - he is 14 months



My cats - Fiona is the calico, will be 16 this fall. Odin is the white one, he is around 12


Rats - sadly, down to just one now and she is 2 1/2. I hate having just one but between her age and the mammary tumors, well... We are taking a break from rats for awhile after she goes. So this it Tulip, pictured as a baby



Then we have chickens and ducks and well of course fish and shrimp:)
