Cutest things EVER!!!

Some of you may know that my rat had babies (kittens). You can hear them in my recent videos! ^.^
I know I said that I was going to put up pictures AGES ago but it's really hard to get good pictures of them, and I didn't want to interfere too much in the first week.

I did however get some pictures at about 3 days (this is basically how they look them they're born, except they're smaller and pinker. They've started to get markings here.)

I didn't want to take pictures while holding them till they were a little older, I only held them to check them over very quickly at this stage... This is at one week:  
They've started to go fuzzy (they're born completely fur less) and they're markings are very clear.


This one is SO CUTE!
They're now 10 days old, more fuzzy with bigger noses! 

Of course I'll keep you posted :)
Now something you may not know, is that one of our dogs has also had babies!!

They're 2 weeks old in these pictures and have started to open their eyes! I took pictures of the black one because she was the first and only one at the time to open her eyes fully. They all have their eyes open now :)

They're Chihuahua's if anyone was wondering (not my first choice of dog, but my mum likes them because they're small).
She did have 4, but one was born with a cleft palate and wasn't eating enough get grow and get strength. By the 2ed evening he was so small that my mum decided to feed him by hand every hour and  took him to the vet the next morning. But unfortunately he died whilst he was there. He started having a fit and they took him off to be resuscitated but couldn't do enough. He had a lot of milk on his lungs because he hasn't developed correctly. They said it might've been because she had so many, normally Chihuahua's only have 2 pups at a time!
Either way, they're all so lovely ^.^
I'll be sure to take video and put them up on my other channel when they start to walk, they're not all that interesting to watch right now because all they can do is crawl around (my mum says they're swimming on air!), sleep and eat.


  1. OMG! I don't think I have ever seen baby rats before! I lost my rate some months ago but I decided to get a gerbil instead as I had allergies anyway )=

  2. Omg the puppies are sooooo cute!!!
