    Hi! I'm Shannon, I'm 19 and I live near Manchester (actually I live in a really small town called Horwich based in the UK which is practically non-existent to those who don't live there). ;)

    I'm a proud momma to my little 9 week old rattie Alfie (known to me as "Alfie Walfie Woo" ... ... it just stuck). I first fell in love with my little man 2 weeks ago and since then he's with me almost 24/7; a real momma's boy. He is an albino Rex and is the cutest little thing ever. I initially bought him with another rat whom I named Eep. Alas, things did not work out and Eep became extremely territorial and began to hunch up his back, lunge and violently bite both myself and Alfie. I called up the petstore and was told to separate the cage immediately. I did so and the next morning took Eep back to the store which I bought him from where they said they would find him a new home!

    Anyways, I'm now looking for a new buddy for Alfie! I've bought another cage for the whole quarantining process and little ol' (young) Alfie will soon have a playmate. :D

    Here are a few pictures of my bubba (he's sat on my shoulder bruxing and admiring himself right now as I type this :rolleyes:)

    Hi and welcome to Shannon and Alife! You have come to the right place here, and I have 3 Ratty girls, and they are beautiful animals. Take a look around, and you can see other member's photo Albums here (including my own). I meant to say that Alfie is adorable, and he knows it! lol :D

    It's so lovely to meet you all! Thank you for making myself and Alfie feel so welcome! I bought a new member of the family last week. His name is Dimple and he's a 6 week old hairless buck. He is absolutely adorable and I'll post some pictures when I get on my laptop!!!
