Our home grew by 8 feet tonight!

Sean and I have toyed with the idea of getting some sort of small pet for awhile now (i.e. pat, hamster, rabbit). The kicker was when our accounting manager at work asked Caden if he wanted a rat for his birthday. Then he got excited so there was no turning back. Of course rats are social animals so we had to get two. Anyways his birthday party is tomorrow , but we picked them out tonight. $150 bucks later and we're home with Dora (the bigger one) and Squirt( the smaller one) they are both females. Dora is skiddish and "screams", we're hoping she gets used to us. But squirt is very sweet and loves to be held and carried in pockets. :) She slept on Sean's shoulder for about an hour tonight while he snoozed on the couch. It was really sweet. The kids just LOVE them and Lily shrieks from joy!

We have a pet rat named Lily and she's the best pet! :) She loves the girls, knows her name, and loves to give kisses. I had rats growing up as pets as well. I hope you enjoy them!!! :)

Remember your hamster in middle school? She could get out of anything! I had three pet rats, two when I moved here and one when I was working over the holiday in CA a couple of years ago. They are very good small animal pets….and very trainable. Of course now my 60 pound boxer puppy would think she could eat them, so the only small animal pet I can have is a hedgehog. Enjoy your new additions!
