Hi all.....Back to my rats tonight!

This is BUTTERS my bristish blue male rat who is 17 weeks old now....

We are off to a rat show on sat and im taking butters to enter into the pet class so fingers crossed lol xxx

I was actually trying to take some 'cute' shots of him on a coloured towel but he was having none of it and preferred to snuggle up in the towel instead!! Lol

Still he did look cute...!!!

Thanks for looking

Yeah mine did that too and i since found out that rats dont like wheels!! lol

although they are super intelligent apparently a wheel is not considered fun!!!.....i should sit mine in front of the spiney mice so they can see how its done!!! lol

Another one i found they dont know what to do with is a ball that they go in 9like hamster balls) mine just sat there in it for about an hour and didnt move an inch!!

It may be the effect of a glass of wine, but I'm rolling with laughter at this one. How cute is that??? And the little so-and-so knows it. Smug? Moi???

How cute is that? I like the way the colour of the towel echoes Butters' pink "bits". I may not always vote or comment, but I really enjoy your pictures.
