Raeka, my little Puerto Rican dog, has been fascinated with the rat girls since they arrived two weeks ago. She stands on her hind feet and tucks her front feet tight to her chest, and balances there for 30 seconds or more. Well, that is until Lulu nipped her on the nose when she sniffed too closely. Then she was afraid to even come into the room. Luckily, she's finally summoned up enough courage to come back into the living room and watch the rats from a distance.
Phoebe, my cat, is also mesmerized by the ratties. She lays on the floor in front of their cage for hours when they are up and active.
Here are the girls eating some yummy egg whites. Lulu is the dark one and Poppy is the lighter, larger of the two.
