Updates on Louna, and a few pics ;)

So as some of you know I went on vacation for 10 days to see my in laws (well i'm not married but i call them that anyway) and my parents.
I left Louna with my friend Audrey who has a rattie named Bruno (turns out after a year, i sexed it and it was a female and not a male like the petstore told her!)
So I brought the ginormous cage over (with weird looks in the metro since I don't drive) and I set up her cage over there. She seemed a bit worried but ok.
When I got back, she seemed SOOOO happy to see me she totally remembered me and licked my hand and played with me and seemed ecstatic!
We decided to try out letting bruno and louna out while watching them closely. Bruno is a very sweet rattie (and very overweight) and couldn't care LESS about louna haha, not giving any attention at all even when she walked on her face! Louna however was FASCINATED, smelling the butt, getting on bruno's back and licking it... but she was really frantic about it, and it sometimes seemed she was trying to rip out bruno's eyes!
[
Her teeth grew back normal, but i feel they grew a little more apart than they were before (she already had a little gap because her teeth tend to grow away from each other toward the top, and now it seems bigger) I'm watching closely, they're a normal size, but I have a feeling they might grow too big.
[
My old pet shop will not let me adopt Louna's mom, they decided to stop ordering from whatever breeding company they were using to save some money. Louna's mom having survived so long in such conditions and giving really good litters with the siamese male she's with, they don't want to give her away. I decided to never set foot in that pet shop ever again because it breaks my heart. Since louna seemed to really enjoy meeting bruno, I'm going to get her a friend eventually, but i feel i need time to get over louna's mom. I'm REALLY sad about it, i had decided to get her without telling my boyfriend and letting him deal with it and scream all he wants. (he's being selfish lately so I don't care if I piss him off) I'll go to the SPCA when I feel ready, and for now i'm giving her extra bunches of love.
I took her out all day today, she got to run around in the grass, see some of my friends that she likes and be the center of attention And this morning she was running around in my bathrobe (which i was wearing haha) and playing with me, it was adorable

Here are some pictures so maybe you can see she grew Do you guys know at what time she's supposed to get grown-up hair? because she looks like she's charcoal grey in real, but there's a little brown undertone. Will she turn black eventually?
She's just over 3 months now

posting the pictures in a new post, because my internet is being weird and I don't want to lose all that text of something goes wrong!!

hihi!

I went to a pet shop that seems nice to get her aspen with her on my shoulder(they don't sell rat as feeders, they're on aspen and there's only a few per cage and they're seperated male from female) and the worker there could not stop saying "OMG she's so cute!" and he had her in his hands the whole time I was there and almost kidnapped her from me hehe

Aww I'm sorry to hear that they won't let you take in her momma anymore. Poor rattie. But, Wow, she has gotten big!!

She is so cute! It is crazy how much she looks like my very first rat, Lily... it brings back old memories haha. I can't find my old pics of Lily anywhere so you could see, but they are SOMEWHERE here at my dads house, lol.

She is a CUTIE. Too bad you're in canada, I have a few blazed black variegated females in my new litters - you could have her twin.
