New Ratties * pictures

Adopted from the humane soceity April 25,2008. These are my first rats. I am thinking about Toto and Solo but not too sure about the names yet so any name suggestions would be great.*hint hint*

I have no clue what breed or age the paper just says "rat" and "baby". One is a chocolate/brown hooded and the other is a beige/tan hooded. Both are males.
(names do not have to be like Toto and Solo)



aw chocolate hooded rattie has a dot on his belley


yes they are brothers

love this pic

made them a cloth shelf...and they got in the middle of it


cuddled

but the beige is nosey

he is layed back and calm

nap time

aw

3 more pictures coming. And to get a little idea on there personality for there names:
Beige Hooded - shy, likes to be 'pushed' around by the chocolate hooded one. He doesnt like to be alone..I had to show him where the chocolate hooded on was because he couldnt find him so he started running around the cage like a wild rattie. The curious one.
Chocolate Hooded - independent, doesn't like to be pushed around. He doesn't mind being alone but likes to have his buddy there with him. So are I found he is more calm and layed back. The calm one.

Sounds like the dark hooded one is the alpha which means he is the leader of the pack.

Domestic rats don't have breeds, they just have variations in color. A rat is a rat basically.

Cute pics.

Well, they definitely have standard ears (not dumbo) and it looks like they have standard coats (there are a few types of coat). The brown color on the darker hooded is what we call agouti. The other one looks like a champagne color. Not that it really matters, they are adorable no matter what color.

Here are some rat colors/markings if you are curious:

Looks like they are already making themselves at home. You did a great job on the cage, they seem to be enjoying it already.

They are nice colours, what sweet little faces peeping out of the cloth. What about 'people' names? I'm thinking along the lines of Bert and Ernie, Jay and Silent Bob or any other duo that you might like. Our boy rats so far have been Brian, Stanley and Winston, I'm not quite sure why, it just seemed to suit them!

haya! Congrats on the new ratties! I couldn't wait to see them! I'm very happy for you, you will have such a great time playing with the rats!

Well, I like the name Solo and Toto, but just so you know, a user called Clarebee1 has the name Toto for one of her ratties and you may want a different one if you know what I mean.

My ideas;

Chocolate hooded- Choco, Coco,Coffee and Beanie (because he looks like a big squishy beany bag LOL)

Beige hooded- Woolen (LOL), Dash and Dean (I just like that name LOL)

Ok and I thought I'd share my names with you and why I chose them to help you LOL

Husky- Because he looks like the breed of dog!

Arthur- That is because I could not think of a name and my family though it would be good because its like saying R for rat LOL

Pepper- because of his colour

Rayray- Because his personality is just like my grandads whos name is Ray LOL
