A Teeny Mouse or a Teeny Rat?
Can you tell the difference between a mouse and a rat? Ok, so you hear the word RAT and you think "Eeeew...gross!" Yep, got that a lot... but the rats that we have in our home are not those yucky ones that go through your garbage and eat through boxes and plastic containers...our 2 rats live in a cage and are cute and gentle...we got them from a pet store. I chose the gray one...like in the card that I made here. Her name is Annie. She's really sweet...she can sit on my shoulder for hours at a time if I let her. The other one that we got is cute too, her name is Cassie. She has kind of a cow pattern. Cassie was added to keep Annie company because my other half read somewhere that rats are social animals. Well, when we put Cassie into the cage with Annie...I was worried that they would beat each other up...they roll around every now that then and you hear a little squeek too, but they sleep next to each other and follow each other around, so I guess they are playing when they roll around. These rats are very gentle. We just got them these clear plastic balls to exercise them. It's really cute, you just drop each one in, close the lid, and then let them wander around the house. They just roll and roll and roll. They are the latest addition to our family! I'll get a picture of them posted later! Hope you all had a great Monday! I took most of the day off today, but it's back to work tomorrow.
