I wanted to get the three boys out for photos last night, but Grinderman was fast asleep in the sputnik, so I let him be. But I got out Guthrie and Schmilsson who were more than happy to be out of the cage and in a human's hand. We were taught how to scruff them in case we ever had to give medication to them. So, we practice it every so often so that the rats don't get...unused to it. Here's Guthrie. He is such a lovebug. SO CUTE. Next is Schmilsson. My husband is absolutely smitten with this rat. And the feelings are mutual, believe me. All my husband has to do is gently tap a finger anywhere on the cage and call Schmilsson's name and he comes running up to him. He's a total ham. Look at the love He won't travel far from my husband.
