I’m going across the city this afternoon to meet with a lady who runs a rattery.
It’s been a few years since I’ve had a rat, and it’s well and truly time, I miss them so much. I’ve only ever had boys, which are big lazy couch potatoes. This time I’m getting girls, who are more active but don’t scent mark, which is difficult to train some boys out of. I don’t know if I’ll pick up girls today, it’ll depend on what litters she has going/planned. She breeds show quality and some beautiful markings, but I don’t need that, I just want to find a pair of friendly healthy girls who want to come live with me, and she’s got a really great reputation for having good health/temperament standards.
You know it’s a good rattery when they don’t let people just pick from photos, you have to go over and meet them and the rats and talk about your living conditions and choose rats in person.
And tomorrow, it’s my birthday! I’m turning 24 and my mum is even coming down to visit which will be really nice. It’s my Dad’s birthday tomorrow too, I was his birthday present.
