They are with us for only 4 days, i rescued them from a pet shop. They are still very scared and they stay like this almost all the time. But what is amazing is that our adult male Smokey protects them like a mother, he only sleeps curled around them to keep them warm and he grooms them so delicate
Aww that is such a sweet story. Only 4 days old and they look all grown up, then again I dont know much about rats. These ones are so adorable. That is amazing how the adult one takes care of the rest of them. You know I had a cat that had the same name and did the same thing with the rest of my cats. Its wonderful when you see animals do things like that.Doesnt say much for us humans. It was very kind of you to rescue them, you are a wonderful person.
Thanks I hate pet shops, they sell baby rats as snake food, it's heartbreaking for me. In the same time these hypocrites sell on the next shelf "cute" calendars with rat pictures for each month...One rat baby is cheaper than a hot dog, so it's quite obvious what they are bred for
I hate the fact that they sell them for snake food. I dont like snakes. I am an animal lover,but I have to say no to snakes, too bad there isnt a law against doing that. I would like to take the owner of these stores and feed him to one of his snakes instead and the thought of them putting the calendars together with rat pics makes me even more pissed off, I am glad I dont go in pet shops, I would be the first one to tell them where they can put their calendars and snakes. Sorry to come on so strong things like this make me very angry especially when I see something as cute as your photo. Give them special little guys a hug for me
I understand! It's like me with my guinea pigs ! Live without any Piggy in my house is now impossible for me, besides, the two babies I have currently are my little babies, can't even think about living without them!
