My 10day old babies are turning 1 year tomorrow already. I will always have my few rats but I can't take on rescues anymore. At least for a while. Hope everyone is well.. sad to see the forum so quiet. I know I'm one of the quiet ones. @Lolly, thanks, missed you all too. I'm sure you and Winston miss her gentle nature. *hugs* *hugs*
@  Rattieroos : (16 October 2017 - 11:21 PM) Not able to be on much lately but had to tonight. I had to say goodbye to my beloved Grandpa Roo and his faithful Nibbs this evening. My heart felt like it was in pieces. Roo would have turned 3 next Tuesday. I keep expecting to see them in their cage or have them on the bed with me.

Here are some July and August pictures of my three naughty rockets! :D finally! 

People have trouble telling Atom and Boots apart but once you get to know them it is quite easy to spot the differences without having a look at their bellies or back feet. ( Atom has white belly, white feet, a pink-tipped tail and white 'cuffs' on his front arms, while Boots only a small white triangle, a fully brown tail, brown back feet and no white cuffs...) But even their face shapes and general expressions are quite different, although you can see they are brothers. Although their facial differences are not so easy to spot from photos alone, Atom has a much more open face where Boots is always a bit more guarded / reluctant looking. Atom is also the smaller of the two, and I suspect even Tobi might grow to be bigger than he. Boots is visibly more heavyset, although thankfully not fat. He is bigger boned. 

 

Their personalities are also highly contrasted. Atom is cuddly and social, and seeks me out to spend time with me, being stroked or played with. Boots has his playful moments, but prefers to be boisterous with Tobi or skulk / stash food / nest in dark corners.

 

One thing I'm grateful for is that these boys are generally very happy with a healthy diet. They also eat ALL their Snuggarat mix eventually. First boys I've had that actually finish all their dry food without blindly refusing the less choicy bits. 

 

 

August 2017 - Tobi left, Atom on top in the middle and Boots bottom right! They were really sleepy here, although Atom just had to poke his face out to inspect the camera.
