The lovely lady rats

If you’ve ever tried to photograph rats then you’ll know how incredibly difficult it is to get them to pose.  Here are a few pictures of the girls that I managed to take.

  1. They are all gorgeous! And so little. To be fair though, my lady rats didn’t get very much bigger than when they were babies. Do you find that they are constantly active all the time? Never want to chill out? My Polly is like a headcase. Sybil I always lose within ten minutes of getting her out. The crazy ratties.

    I want to meet Templeton!!

  2. And I know what you mean about trying to photograph them! Impossible sometimes!

  3. All the time Soupy. They have more energy than the kids. They like to play “bounce off the walls” in their house in the early hours of the morning.

  8. Templeton is a very good name for a rat. Actually it is a very good name for anything I think.

    Errrr.. is your head actually touching the ceiling in that photo?

  10. Heather, yes a fun house is often how I describe my home.

    Debs, I’m sure that they have rats on your side of the pond.

    Perp, I’m afraid that it was stolen from a popular book and film.

    Adorable Michelle, how else do you keep the ceiling from falling down?

    Adorable! And yeah, they’re tricky little rascals to photograph. I have a kind of cute shot of our first two rats, Sax and Cinnamon getting caught in the act of nest-making when we left the kleenex too close to their cage:
