Rat Mama- View At Your Own Risk!

Well, the girls went back to school and the baby rats were looking at me from their cage saying "where did everyone go!?" They were use to being toted around all day on one shoulder or another, hearing the noise of the family.
So, I put on my scarf nice and tight because if you don't have a collar shirt, they are a little ouchy, and I packed them on board. Don't worry, I did my kitchen stuff before doing this. The apron stays on me for other housework but I washed it, promise!Spazy likes to give kisses. Cute, but awkward.
When I hold out the camera, they kept thinking I was making them a bridge to some fun place somewhere. They were eventually doing this up both arms and I had to keep calling them back or it was a stupid picture of me.
Don't they make an adorable side fur?
Tickles are pretty heavy when you have both of them at once, something I decided not to do again.

"Oooooo, a bookshelf! If I jump can I make it?"

All in all, I let the girls make up for time from then on out. They are sweet, and yes, I've warmed up to them a ton from where I was before at the pet store declaring "No, no way!" and "Ewww, their tails!!!" I love them, they are sweet and I'm okay with being a rat mama.

My kids don't know how lucky they are that I'm a very embracing person.....
