New Addition(s) to the Wessman House

Today we brought home two new baby rats, one for each kid. We have been talking about getting pet rats for a long time, and we finally decided go through with it. Our kids have been begging for pets for a while, and I think it will be really good for them to have something to care for and play with. Rats are great because they are so friendly and playful, while not requiring the same level of care that a larger animal like a dog needs.

The video is of the first time we got the rats out at home. We held them at the store as well. The video also includes the kids deciding what they wanted to name their rats. Later we took some pictures of each kid holding his or her rat, as well as the rats climbing on Mom and Dad. In the pictures with me, I’m not scared of the rats, I was just surprised with how incredibly ticklish it was. I couldn’t stop laughing.

    Looks like the Wessman tradition of two pet rats continues. I can’t remember how many pairs the boy(s) went through over the years. Hopefully yours have better fates then some of ours…
