Welcome to the Ratropolis Blog

This companion blog will keep you up-to-date with our rats, to give you an idea of what it might be like living with rats on a daily basis. Of course, every rat is its own unique experience, and every day is a new adventure.

So to start out the blog, I will introduce you to the Ratropolis Rats:


Pirate is a 1 1/2 year old big boy, standard ears and standard fur, white with black markings, weighing in at almost 700 grams. He is a real sweetheart - never bites, loves to be rubbed behind the ears and will boggle so hard you would swear his eyes might pop out. He is also a big licker. As a baby he was quite timid, but has overcome that well.


Loki is Pirate's brother, also a 1 1/2 year-old big boy. He is a black-hooded rex, which means he has curly fur and whiskers. Loki is much more skittish than his brother and doesn't get along with other rats. He used to live peacefully with his brother, but then recently, he suddenly started attacking him, so they had to be separated. Loki is very happy living alone - a rarity for rats, who usually prefer rat company. He likes spending time with his people and is trying to learn some tricks, but if he smells Pirate on you, he will bite. As long as you are Pirate-free, though, he loves his people.


New Additions

Because rats in general don't like to be kept alone, we will be getting Pirate some friends this coming June. Stay tuned for posts about the new additions when they arrive.
