Feeling the Chill

By imander
This is Pinky one of MRS_IMANDERS twenty pet rats Sad
She is a hairless rat and has a great personality, there skin feels rather strange to the touch but to be honest unlike the picture they dont actually get that cold, there skin is always warm and we make sure there houses are full of socks and hammocks that they can snuggle up in Smile

This is the last for a while in my mice and rat uploads, 2morrow we are going to be looking at some of the mushrooms and fungi I have found recently, so have pen and paper ready as I will be asking questions later Smile

Cheers Ian

I'm glad you included this piece of information. I had this vivid mental image of you as overseer of the sweat shop where Debi and the girls slaved away knitting miniature waistcoats and scarves. Another illusion shattered Smile

Love the snail, it just rounds off the wonderful insanity. Question is - will the mushrooms have as much personality?
