Just thought I'd update, let everyone know my pair of ikkle girlies are doing well :dumbo: :hearts:

They've met the adults a couple of times via me opening doors and letting them explore/meet the adults (thankfully none of mine are territorial so I'll do lazy intros :oops: ), still a bit shocked by the big adults and want to be able to come back to me, this evening Farren did decide one of my girls and stumpy (fairly big adult male, although very low in hierachy he's like 5x her size) were NOT allowed to pin her :o I have a feeling they may be going in slightly higher up the hierarchy than you'd expect from babies! They didn't argue with my more dominant adults but were definitely weren't interested in being near the bottom either :love: My previous babies have all gone in submitting to everyone!

Depending how they carry on I may try and pop them in at the weekend :D

It's a bit complicated as my hierarchy has gone a bit haywire currently as one of my baby boys (you know, at now 9.. no 10 months! Vodka) appears to be rising up the hierarchy, he and wiggy keep arguing, it looks like he may be my top boy soon :o Which means I have more dominance arguments than normal currently. Not sure if the new rats are why or just ages really, but it does mean I'm being slightly more cautious with intros than normal.
Mummy to Chrissy, Bramble, Amber, Vodka, Riley, Monkey, Stumpy, Princess, Mr Arthur Wiggins, Pixie and Farren.

I am happy to say..... I am now the proud mummy to Indy!! She is such a lovely little girl! I didnt realise she was soooo small! She really didnt look like this in her other pics on here!! lol
Anyway, she has now happily moved in with my group. They were very accepting of her, I think because she is so young, they just took her under their wing! I think she is enjoying all of the interesting sights and smells in the cage, she never sits still for very long! (saying that, she is snuggled in into a big chunky group right now!)
Here are some pics of her. Not many good ones as she is very speedy!!

Awww, little Indie :hearts: Thank you so much for the update. I was trying to sit on my hands and not email to ask how everything was going! I'm glad intros went smoothly. Now you'll just have to fatten her up ;) I wonder if she'll ever get any longer though? I checked, double and triple checked to make sure I wasn't bringing you one of the babies instead of Inds, they're pretty much of a size now! Does she have a best friend yet?

Indie looks fab.....lovely pix..... :love:

Just to say that Indies Minky daughter who's staying with me at the moment is loving being with her Aunty and cousins, as is Lucky's Minky hoody girl......it's amazing how they've all become close and I have to look twice now to see who's who as they've all grown, except the hoody of course, that's obvious....even to me :rollred:

No best friend yet, but she is snuggled up with my other black hoody dumbo (Gwen) and my Silver Fawn hoody Grace. Occasionally Brodie (Black hoody) will get a cuddle, the rest of the time she is pinging around the cage! At the moment she just seems to enjoy being snuggled up with the big fatties! Harrison and Captain Jack have literally just gone over and piled ontop! :lol:

Tempest is here and he and a black hoody I've been calling Wills are staying with Jack & Kembali. Jack & Wills will go back to Amy then onto their new home.

Jack is amazing. When we put all 4 boys in together Wills was being scared so I said "Oh Jack, go and see him, cheer the little one up". Jack was the other side of the cage but bounded across, onto the hammock and started grooming Wills :hearts: He really does seem to know what I'm saying as that's not the first or last time he's done stuff like that. His new mummy is getting a very special boy :D

Kembali & Tempest are wonderful too of course and already good friends

Just to say that I have one of Chelsea's "mini muffins" here - Mink de Ville, plus another two that were born in the park - DJ and Baby. All 3 are doing just fine. DJ and Baby are still quite shy, but Mink is just a total horror - all over the place and has taken to my OH like you wouldn't believe. Proper little Daddy's boy lol. They send rattie kisses to all their relatives :love:
Lynda, with her boys the Park Babies Mink de Ville, DJ, Baby and Lightning. Sparky the syrian hammy. Rosie theTarantula. And the Tropical Fishies. Not forgetting Hellstorm Cloud. Forever in my heart, my beautiful boy xx

My two will be staying with Lilly for Christmas, (thanks to Pineappletastic, other rat-train angels and to Lilly) I'm fairly sure I'm having 2 mink girls one each from Faith and Indie's litters (Raz knows for certain what is what lol)

They will be called Atomic and Rapture and hopefully will get on with the mischevious lot I have who managed to break out of the explorer this morning! I am of course ridiculously excited :lol:
