I've only had 3 rats, one of them is not with me anymore, but I'm mentioning her anyway...
- Uriel is one of the 4 archangels, he's the angel of light, fire or sun, however you want to put it... either way, Uriel was a fawn self rat, so I thought that "angel of sun"
- The name comes from the book called "Flowers For Algernon". In the book Algernon was a laboratory mouse, and since I adopted him from my lab animals class, I think it fits
- My sister named this guy... the conversation with her went like something like this:
Me: You are going to be mad with me
M: I got another rat
M: Another rat... like Algie...
S: And why would I be mad?
M: Cause I got another rat.... that will grow as big as Algie...
S: Name him Aragorn
M: O.K.... *insert weird face*
(For those that don't know, my sister has phobia to rodents, and have never liked my rodents. The only ones that she has liked are a hamster I had named Frank and Algie)
