The newest addition to our family. mmm I know what you are all thinking but really she is very sweet. Gwen is Kady's 13th birthday present. We went and picked her up today. She is so cuddly and is growing on us all very quickly. Didn't think I would ever like a rat. She is still very small for a rat. We have a harness for Gwen so that when she is a bit bigger Kady can take her for walks. We have already started toilet training her because rats learn very quickly to go in a litter tray in their cage. This week Kady is hoping to teach her to come when she calls her name. I am thinking all of these things will take a while. Rats are quite intelligent and learn things very quickly. They are also very clean. Gwen spends hours cleaning herself.
Now Mum don't say you could never allow a rat in the house lol because you let me have mice when I was a kid. Remember Whiskey and Shandy and how quickly they turned into Rum, Coke, Bacardi and every other spirit quite quickly.
She looks huge in this picture but it's because she is stretched out as far as she can reach so that she can sniff something.
