Three young rat boys~ They're "Small Rats" (Yes, they really are called that at Petco. There's also "Medium Rat" and "Large Rat" X'D)
I got today at PetCo along with their food, bedding, water, chew toys and cage. One is a nearly purely black one with a white underbelly and paws. Another is a black and white hooded and speckled one, and one is a cream hooded and speckled one.
So far, the black one and hooded black and white one have proven to be more chilled out than the cream one. When I was moving them to their new cage after setting everything up, the cream one freaked out entirely when I picked him up out of the box: squirming, kicking and flailing until he got free and literally LEAPED
into the cage. The black and hooded black and white one both didn't really seem to care and simply let me pick them up and put them in. So already I can tell that even though all three are explorative, the cream one is jumpy. XD
Right now, I need names for all three of them! Though I do base names off of personality traits, I literally just got them today, so I haven't gotten to scope out their personalities much yet. So suggestions on names would be appreciated! (No longer valid. They have names now~)
Here's a link to the Facebook Post
I put up with two pictures, so you can see them~
So, that aside, they are just relaxing now after exploring their new cage a bit.
And I am sitting here, typing this, eating and watching vids. EDIT:
HEY guess what?! They have names now! 8D Hehe yep, with help from friends (and my mom and Grandma~) I got names for them!
- The black hooded and speckled one.Splinter
- The cream hooded and speckled one.Scout
- The nearly all black one with a white belly and feet.Also an edit:
I was forced to put them in an aquarium tank for the time being until the new cage I ordered for them comes in, which is hopefully gonna be Monday, May 4. Scout kept squeezing his way between the bars of the other cage, so hopefully this new cage's gaps will be small enough to keep Scout from squirming his tiny little butt through the bars. X'D First time ever owning "Small Rats" and I can say that it's already a hastle.
Have a nice day everybody~ !skullettez
