In September of ‘08 I brought home two little rat sisters, one of them picked out because of the stripe on her face. I have a weak spot for striped faced rats.
We named her Nibbitz.
She was a TEENIE little thing when I first broght her home, just a slight handful, and afraid of the whole world.
She did grow up to be a strapping young rat woman though. And lived a happy life with her sister One of Two, and their catemates.
Sadly, the last week of April 2010 we lost our dear girl. She’s got her wings now and is flying with all the dear rats I’ve known before her.
