My cute rats!

Okay, they aren't mine, although I think of them as being mine. These are two rats that came to the shelter a while ago as babies and I did a post about them then. They have grown up a bit but anyway, I'll cut to the chase. They have a petfinder page now with the cutest pictures ever!

Here is the link:

I don't think that they have official names so I named them myself. The one with more white I call "Sirius" and the one with more grey and the tiny white dot on his forehead I call "Padfoot". (Harry Potter themed)

Padfoot is an absolute cuddle bug <3. He spends a lot of time on my shoulder when I am there.
Sirius likes to give me kisses and play with my hair. Once he sat on top of my head : ).

They are super sweet and should definitely go home together since they have been together for there whole lives, and they are best buddies.

Their favorite treats are "Yogies!" which are yogurt drops for rats and other small pets. Their favorite flavor is the strawberry yogies.

Oh and they love fleece!!! They are my "new fleece creations testers". They would love to have fleece blankets and hammocks to sleep in when they are in their new home. And if anyone who is reading this ends up adopting them, don't bother with a wheel, they don't really use them, at least they never use the one that they have.

Note: You may notice that on their petfinder page it says "female". They are NOT female. I don't know why it says that. They are male, no doubt about it.


  1. They are kinda cute!
    Love and hugs,

  2. I love the names you gave them! Harry Potter themed names are always very cool!

    Sarah :)

  3. I admit it - they are sweet looking, even if they are rats! They certainly don't look like the ones in the movies that are running in sewers and down gross alleys. (Those are usually the movies set in Victorian London.) They do sound like a fun pair, too. Hope they are adopted together.
