Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

why do i do this to myself? :(

i didnt even think we were gonna go into pet smart today, but we did, and like always i check on the rats to make sure nothings wrong with them or if their cages are clean. well usually this pet smart has one tank with 2 rats in it, df found a tank on the other side with a dumbo hooded (or seal point? some of the ladies who have had more rats then me will know) when i get there i sit on my knees in front of the tank he started licking and scratching at it, they have little notches on the side for air and i put my finger up there and he started licking me :( meh i didnt expect that, my heart melted >.< now im sad he reminded me of my first rat so much

lame confession but i dont care *humph*

Quoting StephanAndCoral:

We rescued rainbow and snowy the people we got them from are good friends and they were told they could no longer have them so we took them in and had them several months before snowy's tumor grew. I also save Flora she had been sold as a feeder rat but the guys snake had gone blue so the guy gave her to a friend of mine and she asked me to hold her while she got a box and I fell in love with her she was so calm and licked my hand so I offered to buy my friend a new feeder rat so I could have her and found out she was pregnant so my friend took care of her for me and in trade I got my rat and 2 babies she got the rest.

Quoting StephanAndCoral:

I have 3 rats Flora May is the mom, Briar Rose and Smoky are her daughters. my son has 1 named Rainbow not Flora's. My daughter had one named snowy also not Flora's but it had a tumor :(

awe yeah i found one with a tumor at a different pet smart(thats why i always check them now, plus i saw a dead one in one of the tanks at a petco) and i honestly wish i could have that many at once (or at least 2) they are so sweet ^.^ i love them

thats pretty cool :)

Percy has one curled ear, so it has a little bump in, it kinda looks like a three, its so sweet, we have another rat as well, that would be Percy's brother from an earlier litter, his name is RatMan (thanks to my four year old) he is just a brown dumbo, they are SUCH sweet animals, when my first rat Tank died, i cried and cried and didn't get another one until Percy, who i've only had about five months.

dogs are pretty gross too so that's a poor comparison.
