Meet the New Rattie Girls!!
Miss Molly has made great progress since she has come home to me. I felt it was the right time to introduce her to a family. I was at Petsmart getting Carefresh and a new mouse wheel when a worker struck up a conversation with me. We spoke of mice and rats and got on the subject of Miss Molly. I told her of Miss Mollys troubles and triumphs and explained my desire and fear of bringing Molly a companion. I needed a baby girl rat, calm and sweet. The woman got a smle on her face and took me back to the back of the store. In a little cage I saw two tiny rats, the size of mice almost. The worker explained "they just arrived."

I have never held a rat before. Molly does not approve of holding so I have been content to feed and care for her from a distance most of the time. These two little babies crawled into my hands, up my arms and onto my shoulders. They picked me. I brought them home. Molly has taken to them instantly, even becomming defensive and nipping me as I picked one up. I was so proud of Molly for being such a good big sister.

The little girls has very different personalities. Waffles is the black and white one and is an adventurer. Dandelion is the peachy one and is shy, but not quiet. They are both loud talkers. Peeping and squeaking and sniffing and chirping all through the night.
