Introducing Rascal...


We recently had the pleasure of minding Rascal for a week. When I told Joules we were minding a rat for a week he thought I had finally lost my marbles, Dillon said he was going nowhere near the rat and Ben was a little bit afraid. By the end of the week Rascal had five new fans...can anyone guess what Mollie would like for her birthday?

I don't know what Mollie wants for her birthday, but I'll have a Ratsak gift pack thanks.

Steffi said...

Oh no,Mollie!That´s not a nice birthday gift to her!
I must laugh about willow´s comment...

ChrisB said...

Joules is very brave I think I would be worried it would poo all over me. If Mollie gets a rat will she look after it!!! Bet you end up with all the work.
Remember what happened when you had a guinea pig!!!!

Beccy said...

Willowtree how could you!

Steffi and Mum, she was gorgeous and so cute. Rats are actually quite clean...for all the time she spent out of the cage she only poohed and wee'd once, unlike the guinea pig.

A Jack Russell, and a shotgun?

nikki said...

Very few people realize that rats are very clean animals and do make nice pets. He's a cutie.

Wow, you're braver than I am, I don't think I would want to take care of one even for a few days!

I wish you'd told me sooner, I would have sent you my cat! :)

Beckie said...

Yeah, very cute! I'm a little skittish around little animals like that, but he is very cute.

JoeInVegas said...

Kila said...

lisa marie said...

Oh Rascal you are a cutie!

my4kids said...

I had a friend who had a couple of them and they were pretty clean. I just couldn't really get past the rat thing. They were good pets though.

Barbara said...

We minded the school rates once when the boys were little. They had babies and we were overrun with them.

Sam said...

Will it be a vegetarian rat?

Alison said...

Welcome back!!

frannie said...

Pamela said...

Debbie said...

Well, he looks cute. But I don't know if I could get over the fact that he's a rat!

elena jane said...

Julie said...

Cheese? hahaha

little wanderer said...

Sally Lomax said...

No...... I would definitley drqaw the line at rates and snakes...... Even watching ratatuoille gave me the shudders at times!!!!

tiger lamb girl said...

I just can't get past the rat on Joule's shoulder. My first instinct is to say 'Ick!'...but maybe rats are sweet. I dunno....

la bellina mammina said...

Rats!! I better let not let my boys see this and give them any ideas.....;-)

mjd said...

He doesn't look so bad.

Carla said...

I had a hamster once, and she was very cute, but rats have always made me a little squeamish. I hear they make great pets though.

Sally Lomax said...

No...Nothing would ever induce me to have a rat to stay. They have good pest controllers in the Forest of Dean though if you need some help when the first flush of romance on the rat front wears off....

Debbie said...

My Sister in Law had a rat and its red eyes kinda freaked me out. But apparently it was a very nice pet.

dawn said...

My girls are wanting a rat, or a mouse or a gerbil or any small rodent they can get their hands on. I have said nothing smaller than a bunny, which they each have outside.

karisma said...

Well, I clicked over here without knowing it and let me say Rascal is one groovy little guy! My Rupert and he would get along famously! I see a lot of my friends are regulars here! Please excuse me while I go and strangle WT. The shit! (He likes cats!) Really I don't mind cats either, but Ratsak????? He deserves a beating for that one!

Rats are the most wonderful loving little pets! You should so get one!
