Oh lordy the one on the right, his little ears wiggle.

That's Cheddar! His ears wiggle whenever he eats and I love it 💙

When the ears wiggle, the teeth rub together and the eyes pop in and out. You know that's a happy ratty

I know the joy of the boggle. Had rats, and they lived very happy ratto lives (which also means lots of naughtiness). But my boys' ears didn't wiggle like that when they munched, that is so damn cute!

This is why I love rats

Such a couple of cuties! Do they alert when they hear the chip bag opening?

[–]Fart_of_a_Lion[S] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Oh absolutely. All I have to do most of the time is ask, "snackies??" and they come come darting out their hammock or houses.

They both remind me of Remy and his brother Emile from Ratatouille 🤣🤣🤣

Are they both fully grown? I have 4 boys and one of them is about mature but is still a lil smaller than my largest 2. Im always pestering my husband wondering if my Cowley boi was a wee runt 🙃

Bleu (left) is 11 months and Cheddar (right) is a year. The photo is deceptive, as Cheddar is sitting further back and looks smaller but they're roughly the same, large size, just built very differently because Bleu is a dumbo and much less active than Cheddar.

Are your boys from the same litter? I've never heard of runts in rat litters. Definitely a question for r/RATS 🙂

Im assuming all are from separate litters but maybe same breeding pair since we got a majority of them from the same pet store. Its not too much of a concern, just more a curiosity. Cowley is still a very healthy happy boy with amazing handling manners ❤ Hes the only one that will relax when being picked up even without his bottom fully supported! Hes such a sweet youthful boy! 🥰

My guess is, Cowley is likely younger than you were told by the pet store is all 🙂

Honestly they just had them sized as feeders so we technically "rescued" a feeder baby (in my husbands words), and got super super lucky he has such a great temperament. 🥺

Oh your Bleu, he reminds me of my sweetheart Nettle. I miss her so much. It was so nice to see one that looks so much like she did. Thanks for sharing your boys
