What great pictures. They are beautiful!
I'd like to show you some pictures of my rats.
On the first picture you can see my first three rats when they were young. All of them died in the age of 1,5 - 2 years. RIP.
They were named after german politicians.
At the top: Edmund (after Edmund Stoiber, minister president of Bavaria)
In the middle: Schröder (after Gerhard Schröder, german chancellor before Merkel)
At the bottom: Helmut (after Helmut Kohl, german chancellor before Schröder)
Later after the death of Helmut I bought another two rats.
This is Blacky. He died some month ago in the age of 2 years.
And finally, this is Milchreis. He is my oldest rat and still alive. However, he's getting old and weak.
I won't buy any new rats because of their short life. It's too sad to see them dying after a few years.
I do agree, it really hurts when they pass on so quickly. My oldest hamster was on this earth for five years.
