time has come for a new entry of my "Do you know?"-series. This time I am going to introduce you to my in total six pet rats. <3
|Carli, Joy, Mariko, Vanilla, Luma and Evora|
Date of birth: 1st of April 2012
Color & marking: Red Eyed Seal Point Siamese
Nicknames: Fatty-Chan <3
Loves: to lick hands, treats
Hates: To be touched by Don X'D
Characteristics: She's kinda difficult. In the past we had some problems with her because she didn't accepted Joy, Mariko and Evora but now it is finally okay. Vanilla's sight is pretty poor (red-eye) and that's why she is sometimes a bit jumpy. We gave her the nickname "Fatty-Chan".. well, because she's a bit.. fat.. that's why <3 ^^
Date of birth: 14th of April 2012
Color & marking: Mink Variegated Down Under
Loves: Multivitamin paste
Hates: to be stroked while sleeping
Characteristics: Carli gets everyday "mated" by Mariko, actually female rats are on heat only every 4 days.. but Carli is it everyday.. ö_Ö ..moreover poor Carli seems to be the lowrankest of the pack. Most people think that Carli is the most beautiful rat of my pack.. and its true she is really beautiful.
Date of birth: 10th of August 2012
Color & marking: Dumbo Husky
Loves: to be stroked when she's tired
Hates: to be pushed away when gnawing the sofa XD
Characteristics: Luma is a difficutie. On the one side she is the one who enjoys my tender loving care the most but on the other side she wants to gnaw everything. This is really a bad habit. Luma is one of the highrankest or probably the highestrankest rat of my pack. Luma yawns really like a lion. Her whole body vibrates when she does.
Date of birth: 31st of August 2012
Color & marking: Dumbo Lilac Hooded
Nicknames: Two-Face (X'D)
Loves: food, to watch people
Hates: to be touched to much
Characteristics: Joy is the mother of Evora and Mariko. She is a pretty nosy rat and she is still a lovely mom. She is not only caring for her daughters but also to Vanilla, Carli and Luma. Joy enjoys to pinch into toes. >__<" Joy got two really different ears and hear eyes look pretty different also. Thats why we gave her the nickname "Two Face"
Date of birth: 21st of December 2012 (Doomsday!)
Color & marking: Black Silvered Irish
Loves: To sit on my shoulder, to be around me
Hates: to be alone
Characteristics: Evora is one of Joy's daugthers who were born at my place back last December (World-Doom-Baby-Rats). Evora is pretty nosy and clingy. She enjoys to sit on my shoulder or next to me - really lovely. Evora is eventhough a bit jumpy and hates to be alone. Evora is like Luma, one of the highrankest rats of my pack. Somehow, Evora and her sister Mariko stayed a bit littler than Vanilla, Carli or Luma and I guess thats why they still enjoy a sort of special kid-bonus.
Date of birth: 21st of December 201
Color & marking: Black Hooded
Nicknames: Mari, Nummer 35
Loves: to run after Carli
Hates: liquid food
Characteristics: Mariko is a sister of Evora and Joy's daugther. She seems first a bit more reserved than her sister Evora but she isn't that jumpy as her. Mariko is more slender than Evora and she mostly sleeps next to Carli and "mates" her everday. Mariko hates liquid food and she shakes her hands like crazy when she gets in touch with it.
At last I want to show you some snaps I did of my pet rats the last few months:
|forget about Lady & the Tramp - >> Carli & Evora|
|yam-yam rice - Carli, Luma (back) and Mariko|
|Luma sleeps like a baby and Vanilla cares for me|
|bad times and a snapshot in time: Joy watchs Luma and Carli - don't worry they were just jealous about food, nothing serious|
|Luma can sleep everyhwere just like me and Evora is at her favourite place: my shoulder.|
