    Handsome ratty, but those wood chips look like cedar which is a big no-no for ratskies.

  4. Mary (the first) says:

    Not goin’ outside. Nope.
    Staying in jammies all day.
    Eating leftovers.

  5. Brilliant!

  6. Gonna shop ’round the clock tonight,
    Gonna shop, shop, shop
    Till broad daylight

    smart guy wish I would have the sense to stay in jammies in bed!

  8. I discovered that cedar was bad for critters on a website, shortly after this pic was taken, he now lives in a cushy bed of the recycled paper product they sell at our local pet supply 🙂

  9. Victoria, Mom to 3 Rats says:
