New hairless boy

Well we have a new addition. We so do not need more rats, but I just placed nine babies, so the house is a little less hectic. this guy is a double rex hairless with a black face patch just like our Izzy. A lady from a myspace group I go to contacted me and basically said that he was very skittish and did not like her at all and no matter what she did he just wouldn't warm up. So I'm an expert in hairless rats that no one else likes because they are jerks and I said I'll take him.

We picked him up last night and it turns out she's only had him two weeks. She got him from a friend who ordered him from a petstore and then decided he was ugly (he's so not ugly). And he's not a bit aggressive. He's just scared. He pees and poos whenever you pick him up and he shakes. But he'll still sniff your hand and he doesn't bite at all. I think this poor guy has just been shuffled around too much and never really socialized at all. He's still pretty young too, maybe 2-3 months. Anyway, by the end of the night he was climbing on my hand by himself. He's still not okay with me pulling him out of the cage, but that's a start. He's very cute and I'll post pics when he's a little less skittish.

He really is a sweetie. He's graduating really quickly. We've only had him two nights and he already comes to the side of his cage when he sees me coming. He's still not so great with me actually picking him up or with taking treats from my hand, but he loves for me to reach in and rub him (he's a scritch fiend like my figgy) and he'll even climb on my hand and sit there as long as I don't actually lift him out of the cage. I think with a couple of weeks of intensive care he will probably be one of the family.
