Owning rats, or as some say, being owned by rats, is a journey. For me it began with being intensely rat-phobic to where I am now, rat-obsessed (ok, i admit it).

This probably would have been a better October post, but I came across the pics the other day and it brought back fond memories.

I work at an all-girl afterschool program and my rats (used to) get to come to work with me until a rodent intolerant person nixed that.

All the girls adored my first 4 girls (Penelope, Bon-Bon, Gigi and Dinky) who got to come with me everyday and the girls bonded strongly with them. For Halloween, two of the girls decided to go as Penelope and Bon-Bon. They looked very cute with their ears and pin-on pink tails. K, the shorter girl in the picture, has kept her interest in rats. She kept a rat journal and wrote down info she found in books and on the net and at one point wrote Bella of Bellaratta's Nest (one of her favorite sites) and got a wonderful reply.

Jane, one of our group leaders and an amazing and creative seamstress, helped them with their costumes. Here's a pic of her modeling her creation.
