Once again the infamous rat iPapers are here … meet Copper. A rat in the care of Star’s Rat Rescue, one of their resident rats.

Star’s Rat Rescue has a recent litter of rats that will be available for adoption very soon. As the owner of the rescue has been posting to the RatChatter forums keeping all its members up to date on their progress she has been posting pictures … nearly every day!
Today’s pictures just begged to be iPaper-ized and so I have two more rat friendly iPapers for my readers. Enjoy!

Just came across a really sweet picture of a baby rat, which inspired me to create another rat friendly iPaper. Enjoy!
The home of Star’s Rat Rescue. Seems rather appropriate to me, and as the name infers, this operation takes in pet rats that need to be re-homed, or sometimes just need their first home. The rescue is run by a fine young woman named Brittney and I have had the pleasure of getting to know her over the last year via RatChatter forums.
She is kind and considerate and has no issues putting the rats ahead of herself. A patient individual that works very hard to help educate those unaware of the great companion animals that pet rats can be, and for many people are.
Star’s Rat Rescue is supported through donations, mostly unsolicited, and by the sales in the SRR Store of Brittney’s sewing handiwork. Hammocks, cubes, cage liners, shelf liners … the list goes on. A lot of the handcrafted items are geared towards Ferret Nations and/or Critter Nations produced by MidWest home for Pets. These types of habitats are common for rat keepers.
I would like to ask my readers to stop over at Star’s Rat Rescue. Take a few moments to read about the rescue operations and see which beautiful and handsome pet rats are waiting to find their permanent homes. Perhaps make arrangements with Brittney to adopt a pair (or more) of these fine pets; maybe purchase an item or two for your own pet rats; ferret and chinchilla keepers using Ferret Nations can benefit, too; or, you could offer something else … I’m sure it would be appreciated.

Just thinking with how busy it has been in the real world of late that I need to stop in and remind myself of the rat world. That place filled with twitching noses and long tails; soft tongues and quiet padding feet.
I added a weekly twitter post. There are not a lot of rat keepers that use twitter, or maybe there are? For those that do not tweet and frequent this little piece of rodent-dom, every week there should be an automated digest post made … at least for now.
Some may have noticed I attributed a quote to myself in a recent post. Most likely in the future I will post the author’s name, or anonymous, if I do not know. If there is no author cited, then I penned the words myself. I hope everyone enjoys them.

This month marks the second year of the Rattitude blog.
I still think of it as the Brux from time to time. Originally this blog was started on blogger.com and once we were made aware of WordPress and all its functionalities we quickly moved to a self-hosted blog built on the WordPress framework.
The Rattitude.com domain was registered in September 2005 and went through many variations and ideas before we settled on WordPress in July 2008. We transferred the original Brux blog in its entirety and continued forward.
I greatly enjoy writing the various blog entries and posting the informative pages, short stories, and other articles for the general rat communities. I also hope to continue to share these ideas and resources for a very long time.
Let me know with a comment what you think of the blog today and where you think it might be going in the future.
