Such a shame rats have such a bad name. If someone could breed a rat with a fluffier tail and call it something else, every kid would have one. Their claws are sorta sharp too, but that's in the noise.
These girls are getting plenty of love and attention!
I too got to play with a friend tonight -- coffee with a very longtime friend who moved to North Carolina about 7 years ago and is back here visiting family. A nice break from reality!
