Cauliflower

a.k.a. Caulie & Ratsy Rat.

She has been a great addition to our family. Really, who knew?? She doesn't smell, doesn't poop around the house, loves attention when you want to give it to her, and doesn't make noise if you don't give it to her. She is an EASY pet. We open the cage and she doesn't run away...she loves people so she stays by you. So far, the easiest pet we have ever owned. She loves to have her head rubbed and will close her eyes while you pet her. And she loves her some cheese and veggies.

She has a deformed ear....which we said looked like a cauliflower ear so that is how she got her name. Cauliflower. And she is learning her name rather quickly.

Here is our Caulie Girl.

You've got to admit...even though she is a rat, she is cute...right?

Much cuter than I was picturing for sure. I had a gray, sewer rat in mind. I like that picture in particular because it hides the long tail. I do agree that it sounds like a pretty maintenance free pet, but not sure that I am leaning towards having one someday just yet. lol. But yes, she looks cute and I like her name. You are such a fun Mommy!

Oh how funny! Yes, it's a cute picture, but I don't think I'd be touching her. I'm glad she's such an easy pet and that Gavin is loving her!

What a fabulous pic of her! Somehow you managed to make a rat look adorable! Maybe I would consider one after all. LOL

What a fabulous photo of Miss Cauli! I'm glad you are all loving her. I suppose I'll put up my mice traps when she comes to visit. :P
