Our Rat

Here's a photo of our rat, Flash. He's really a gerbil (a nicer way of saying Desert Rat!!!). I call him Ratty or Ratboy. I find he looks like a chipmunk. He stinks, too.
(Edited to add: I Do like his little hands!)

So very cute! We used to have hamsters. These little critters really can produce very big odors for such tiny guys!

Doreen - we had a hamster - he was very cute - cuter than the rat IMO. However, he did not last very long; unfortunately while we were on vacation last summer, and my mom was on the watch, he passed. We called him Floofy, because he was so floofy! Floof was MUCH more disgusting than rat, but cuter!

Too cute! Does he bite? Ours were terrible biters and a little smelly.

Ratboy is adorable and his "hair color" is beautiful. Ours were grayish/brown and not friendly. Cuter than reptiles though!
