hehe lol, wishing you the best of luck Vanilla!
Well, When I wnet to get my hammie, Valentine, from pets at home I ended up taking a peek in the rat tanks. It was probably the first time I'd seen a live rat and I thought it was the cutest thing I ever saw. I was going to get two rats, however, before I got Valentine I'd bought everything I needed for a hammie and after asking the shop about getting the rats and the small hamster cage I had, they wouldn't let me buy rats unless they new I'd bought all the stuff I needed to lol.
Once I saw valentine, I had to take him home, he was gorgeous and I already had my heart set on a hammie.
After 7 months of having Valentine and doing tons and tons of research about rats, I knew pretty much everything I needed to and couldn't bare not having rats of my own.
I took £150 in cash to pets at home, bought everything I needed there, including Pepper and Rayray, my first two rats. I was so in heaven with Pepper and Rayray that when I went to get some more extra bits for Pepper and rayray at pets at home, I ended up coming home with Husky and Arthur. (that was 4 months after I had Pepper and Rayray
I joined Paw-talk after I got alentine and helped people out on this forum on their posts and threads, which gradually teased and teased me until the point I was going to burst if I didn't get my rats LOL
So I geuss I also sorta owe Paw-Talk and it's members a big thank you!!
