Hi everyone! My name is Jessie. I'm 23 and I've had rats since I graduated high school. I very recently lost one of my girls and I've been feeling the need to find more rat lovers to share my girls with. I got rats shortly after I moved into my own place, because someone told me they were the cleanest, cheapest, and easiest small animal to care for (if I ever see this person again we're having words). I was an idiot and didn't do proper research and just believed my manager (worked at the pet store) ended up bringing home a single rat in a large rabbit cage. THEN did my research and promptly found another rat and bought all the proper things for them... $400 later I had Boof, Bree, Ana, and Pepper cuz I saw two gorgeously colored rats at the store when I went to get my cage and I had to bring them home. This is them the week I got them. The blue is Ana, the agouti is Pepper, the PEW is Bree, and the black is Boof.

Since then I've gotten a pair of dumbo sisters named Roxie and Luna.

I also fostered two boys named Boris and Marky.

Ana passed away just a few days ago. She had to be put down because of a pituitary tumor, which is the most horrible way for a rat to go. She wasn't able to walk or eat or drink on her own. Bree passed away during surgery on a mammary tumor last year. She just never woke up from the anesthesia.
