Took long enough but i finally managed to take some pictures of my ratties! My camera broke several times as there was sand inside it, so i eventually had to buy a new one. But here we go XD
They have been really funny and they both have really different personalities, Picasso is the white and brown one. He is more outgoing and likes running around. Is is super energetic all the time and always leaps to the side of the cage and climbs up the bars whenever i go near the cage, Pablo is the chubby ginger one and he tends to stay near his cage more, but he loves cuddles and will curl up in my lap and watch a film or play games with me.
Most of the pictures were actually taken on cleaning day so the cage is a bit of a mess, they don't seem to mind the mess but i sure do! They have a bath on cleaning day, i just let them paddle about in warm water and they seem to enjoy that.
i have also managed to train them to respond to their names! Each time i gave them a treat i made a little squeaking noise so they associated the squeak with treats, then i started using their names. So now they come when i call (my mum said she couldn't understand why i would get rats and that they couldn't be trained, i proved her wrong >:3 ) I'm trying to train them to do other things but they seem more interested in doing other things like climbing the curtains or tugging on my shoelaces.
I have been trying them with loads of kinds of food, so far the really love porrage, strawberries and shreddies but the don't like apple or grapes. In fact they hate grapes so much they try and push them out the cage (which is really cute to watch them do) and they also like scones and tea. This is reassuring and any good Englishman should love scones and tea. I don't trust anyone who doesn't xD My friend made one a tiny top hat and monocle out of paper but they got chewed D:
does Pablo look a too fat?
