my name is finley, i'm 17 years old. i first fell in love with rats at my ex-boyfriend's house when i got to play with them. now i'll be getting my own on march 9th. i already have them picked out, two champagne baby boys. one is a split hooded named venus and one is a self rex named rozz. venus is named after the song venus in furs by the velvet underground and rozz is named after rozz williams of christian death. they have the sweetest personalities and i've seen many videos and pictures of them playing. if you have any advice for first-time rat owners please let me know! i'm in so many facebook groups and have lots of friends with rats but anything is helpful.
