I just found these photos waaay back in my phone. Sausage (white baby) was kept because my mojave wasn’t interested and saucy decided to cling on to my finger and hold on for dear life. So.. he became part of the family and still is to this day. I then went out and rescued Meatball from certain death.. and the first 3 photos are what happened when I introduced them. Meaty taught Saucy how to be a rat! He quickly learned how to eat and drink and they were pretty much inseparable. A few months past and I fell in love with a dumbo rat pictured on the far left in photo #3. He became part of the trio! Unfortunately Meaty died at just 6 months of age due to a sudden stroke. Sausage and Pepper were sad for a long time and things haven’t been right with them since. I think they still miss him even though it’s been a few years now. I am glad they have each other though. Rats are extremely intelligent, social and loving animals. I now have 6 handsome boys. <3 :)
