Morgan & Georgie's Boys

The boys have a story already. They are the little ratlet offspring of
Morgan Le Rat and Georgie Sr.rat. Both parents figure they are now old
enough to be introduced on the blog.
The boys were moved into their own condo at 5 weeks, the suggested
time to move them from the litter so there are no mistake mateings
because at that age, they are old enough to take an interest.

Well, Georgie Jr, Monty, and Mozart were given their own condo,
decked out with all they may want or need to set up a bachelor pad.
However, two of the cages Poi Mom Jane has, have bars wide enough
for little ratlets to squeeze through. Georgie Sr. had one and the
little ratlets were given the other. The little boys could not get
into the girls condo and that was what was important.

So after some serious exploring and checking things out and shuffling
behind the couch and all around, the boys decided they didn't want their
new condo. They first tried moving into the silk plant on top of the cages,
but that did not prove to have enough room and PMJane kept slipping
them back into their own condo. No that would not work. Plus
they had all discovered their Dad, Georgie Sr., a grumpy lone
rat who liked living alone thank you and didn't want room mates of
any kind in his condo grumpy old man pad.

This did not detere the ratlets though. They loved their Dad and
after some nagging and snuggling and harrassing, they picked
up, lock, stock and chicken bones and moved in with him.
They refused to move. Even when PMJand moved Georgie into the
bachelor condo and left the ratlet boys in his old pad, they moved
over to be with Georgie Sr, Dad. Georgie Sr gave many long suffering
looks, and did some grumbling, and some huffing, but the boys wouldn't
leave. So they are all there, in the same conco still. PMJane even
caught Georgie playing with the boy ratlets in the silk plant during
cleaning day. He really seems to not mind his little boys and they are
not leaving. The moving of their chicken bones in to Dad's cage
proves it.

So here are their first public pictures,
a bit blurry because they don't like to sit still:

Georgie Jr.rat. If you look closely, you will
see Mozart peeking in the background in the cube.

and not an albino. He has a light beige hood and dark

Mozart Amadeusrat, shy albino dude with
beautiful red eyes.

The End (for now)

What a sweet story, and sweet pictures of course!

Although 5 weeks is a bit young, it's my understanding (and expirience) that male rats are very easy with ratlets, because they don't consider them competition yet. And by the time they would consider them competition, the ratlets are already accepted as part of the pack.
