I just wanted to share some cute photos of rats. Or photos of one particular rat, Beka.
True, "my" rats live with my parents. And I still feel bad about leaving them behind. But I do still get to play with them, and if I had to do it again my independence would win out over keeping them. No, actually, if I had to do it again, I would do my research before getting them, so that I wouldn't get pets that I would have to abandon.
The following photos are of Beka drinking various substances that I also find yummy.
It turns out that Beka likes coffee. Look at how much she drank!
Ok, I'm joking. Well, she does like coffee, I wasn't joking about that, but she didn't drink that much. I actually didn't let her drink very much at all. I really don't think that she needs caffeine.
And here I am protecting my coffee by placing my hand over the mug. And of course, Beka trying is to get through my fingers. Yeah, this rat loves her morning coffee!
This photo, and those following, were taken in January. I may have shared them on my previous blog at the time, I don't remember. But I think they're worth sharing again. :)
These pics are from when Beka discovered that sake and ginger ale go well together.
I didn't let her have much, and soon enough was protecting my yummy drink with a hand over the mug. I'm not sure how well rats and alcohol mix.
Beka tried to push my hand off the mug...
...and she tried smothering my hand with kisses.
But no matter what she tried, the hand wouldn't budge.
