Rhiannon, those rats are so damn cute!

I've been a rat fan for a couple of years now - ever since my dad starting keeping them - and I simply adore their little quirks and behaviourisms.

How old are those two, if you don't mind saying? :D

@Rhiannon: Kya! They are so cute!!

I have hamsters and dogs. I used to have 6 dogs but now only 1 still lives.

As for my hamster I bought a pair and they have little baby hamsters! They already died now though because of old age and now I only have 1 local hamster and I call him "Chamu"

Chamu is old and still a virgin, poor hemmu :cry:

I want to have a bunny and a cat...>w<

Right now I'm living with a cat, its my roommate's. The damn thing goes ape-shit whenever he isn't around, fights with things that aren't there, cries real late into the night for no reason, and runs away from me, if I just enter the room. It would be one thing if the cat was crazy and affectionate, but...

I hate cats!

You know, I don't know exactly how old the rats are. Pi is just getting his adult coat in though... so about 3-4 months old.

And they are absolutely adorable, and have both wonderfully unique personalities! I could go on about them quite a bit.

Been awhile since I posted in here, so I'll update.

I have 7 cats right now. Did have a dog, but we had to give her to a relative(too much to handle).

Their names are kati, sugar, missy, maximillian, shadow, oliver, and ajax.

R.I.P. to my little darling, Tiki. Found him dead in his food dish this morning. It's so sad; he wasn't showing any signs of illness, and he looks like he died of natural causes.

That leaves Fiji (the other finch) alone. Since finches are social birds, I worry about his health being the only bird - so we are going to buy a pair of zebra finches on Saturday and have a three-bird household so he has some feathered company. He is acting sometimes normal and sometimes disoriented today; he knows something is missing. I compare it to a child who loses a family member, but doesn't understand that the "gone" is permanent.

Forgive me for the double post here.

So today we went and bought a new pair of zebra finch males, so that our remaining finch (Fiji) wouldn't be lonely. Although I feared all sorts of problems with the transition, things went well. My bird starting eating again, they all bathed in turn, and there's no fighting or aggressive/submissive behavior (at least not yet.)

What was fun (and surprising) is that the store had white zebra finches. (They're actually what I'd consider white ticked; they're not absent of pigment as entirely as a real white finch is.) This makes for an interesting trio in the cage.

Anyway, I now introduce to you the new trio of finchlings, as photographed from left to right: Tiki (named after our beloved one that just passed,) Fiji, and Noni. Finches are incredibly hard to get a picture of in a small cage. :lol:
