Everyone's got a favorite.

I put all the blame for my hobby on just one of my does, a black hooded doe who goes by the name of Pook.

She is such a character. As one friend appropriately deemed her, she is 'annoyingly friendly'. It is impossible to mess around in the cage without Pook managing somehow to crawl up your arm. Her favorite vantage point is standing on the top of your head.

When I let the rats loose in my room, most of the girls cower under desks, a few more explore in the corners or run to and from the dresser sets and under the bed. All the While Pook is getting into everything (and onto everything). Every few minutes she climbs up my leg to see me for a bit, then gets distracted and goes to explore a bit more. She is the only rat who comes when I call her and who 'visits' while in free range time.

Her few bad habits include booger snatching. Her favorite thing to do is dive right into a nostril and lick away. Needless to say, I try to discourage that behavior as much as possible, but she has performed her disturbing 'dig' on many an unwary nostril.

She does give the best kisses though. And, she's usually really good about not peeing or pooing on you, as long as you take her to her cage for 'potty breaks' often.

Wee little baby


Asking to be picked up


On the way home from schoool - Zoology teacher asked me to bring her in to class. She was so freakin excited, she had an excellent time. With most rats, I'd be worried about stress, but not with Pook.


At school. She discovered how fun my purse was to explore.


Her favorite drink is any sort of pop. She doesn't get it often, though. She was sure to get the few drops of coke that I missed.

She looks just like a rat i used to have named rattles, super cute.

My favorite was Francis she sounds just like your rattie other than the nose thing. She was the only rat i could let floor time be my whole house as she would go to the cage to poo and pee and come when you call her and sit on your lap and loved cuddles she was the rat that during floor time she would be on me and not the floor hehe.

she sounds just like my sweetness, except for the booger snatching. i hope none of my rats develop a taste for digging. saying that, mine like to do some rodentistry as much as they can. they just dive in and lick the inside of your mouth. nasty but cute. especially as sweetness eats poop.

she's really cute.

Fran used to like to eat oil paint no matter where i thought i hid it out of reach she would come out with yellow oil paint. I had to q-tip her mouth out several times.... Poor kid, at least the yellow oil paint was the cheap kind with out harmful metals for the color

I had a couple rats that had a fondness for eating soap! I now keep the soap out of reach during free-range time!
