Anonymous asked: Do you know some good rat only blogs? I follow a few but I don't feel it's enough :(

Unfortunately I do not, but I’d love to follow some! Followers?

Hello! ;D Only rats, plus the occasional mouse.

emmawuvscookies asked: I just got my rat today and he's really scared. How should I comfort him and get him to like me? And do you recommend harnesses until trained?

Be patient. Let him get used to his surroundings before trying to pick him up and carry him around. Offer treats so he associates you with good things. It can be a long process, but definitely worth it! Once he trusts you enough, you should try hoodie bonding. Wear a hoodie and let him hang out in the hood or front pocket. I’ve had a lot of success with that method!

As for harnesses, I wouldn’t use them at all until he actually trusts you. Putting a harness on a scared or timid rat can cause possible injury.

Be slow, be patient. And if he doesn’t have a friend, please consider getting him one! Rats need buddies of their own species for proper mental health, and a rat that has friends is also more confident and out-going.

Rat-o-Ween!
Happy October everyone—this is my fave month, and it is especially beautiful in my little neighborhood in Portland.  If only it could be more than 31 days!  Now I’m imagining being stuck in an October Brigadoon situation and I am OK WITH IT.
Anyway have a jack-o-lantern full of rats!  Only two of these are based on my pets, so it isn’t as macabre as it could be.  The sweetie pouring out of the pumpkin is my poor departed Sherlock, the little gray face poking out above him is Watson, who is doing just fine, thanks.

Wyatt and I went to the pet store the other night, it’s my favorite one too because it actually carries a good selection of rodent stuff, they’re locally owned, and they sell unique rats :) This is the only pet shop I would consider adopting from.

I always peek over to see what kinds they get,…

We live in Oregon!!! What part are you in?

I live in inner SE Portland :)

Oh wow! We live in Gresham. :D

GomDoRi was so cute and passed the fuck out! I petted him and touched his hand and he didn’t even budge. I love little rat hands!
