Hi fellow rat lovers. I'd like to introduce myself, my name is Terri and I've been handed the Founder reins by the lovely Hallie. I've never been in charge of a Group before, so any support and patience is very appreciated.

I want to see Rattus-norvegicus become an active and positive Group again. I would love to hear from you wonderful members about what you'd like to see from this Group. All feedback is welcome.

We are also looking for 1 to 2 new active Moderators who will be a part this wonderful new adventure of getting us active again. Please send me a private note.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you and the future for Rattus-norvegicus.

Rat photo competition by Fizzy Star Rats for May 2018. Prizes will be awarded June 2018 (no points or memberships for dA):…

Fizzy Star Rats Photo Competition.

We would like to see your Cute or Funny Rat photographs, or your photograph may be cute and funny.

The competition will run from the 1st May 2018 until the 31st May 2018.

To Enter, you must like this page and this post and post your photograph in the comments below.

It is a good idea to watermark your photo using photoshop or paint software, although your rat should not be edited, we would like to see your rat naturally being cute or funny.

The five winners will be determined by the amount of 'Loves' they receive from anyone who views this page. You do not have to enter to 'Love' or 'Like' the photographs.

If you have entered a photograph you cannot 'Love' or 'Like' your own picture but you can vote for other peoples photographs.

If there are more than five potential winners the results will be decided by the Fizzy Star Rats team.

You may enter more than one photograph but to make things fair you can only win one prize from this competition, but you can enter any other Competition or Giveaway by Fizzy Star Rats.

The five photographs with the most 'Loves' will win a set of four Fizzy Star Rats Magnets, a sticker and a tiny Teddy Bear for your own photoshoot.
Please note the Teddy Bear is not a toy for your rats, so it must only be used under supervision.

The magnet set will include one of each of the three cartoon style magnets (shown above the sticker in the picture below)
plus one of the more realistic rat magnets, (shown to the left in the picture) there will be a choice of six different coat colours.

You are welcome to share this post on other pages.

Hullo rat maniacs!
I'm trying to help our little friends just how I can.
I have an asylum for rats, I'm taking care of them and I'm looking for a good home for them here, in Poland.

Of course I have prepared an english version for all of you. I hope you will help us!

And if any of you would like someday come to Poland - I invite you to tea, coffee, cake and cuddling our rats.
