Wicked Cute Ratty

Posted on | September 19, 2012 | 14 Comments |

One of the pleasures (in my opinion) of going and visiting partners is that you also get to visit their entire household. In the case of visiting m’Lady in Melbourne, this not only meant getting to catch up with hir partners, but also Ambrosia the Rat!

Last time I went to Melbourne I didn’t manage to get a single picture of Ambrosia – she is so damned fast! This time I more than made up for it, and came home with  nearly 80 photos, just of her :)

Isn’t she a cutie? (Yes, there are click-throughs on all the pics.)

She’s an extremely independent ratty, and as well has having her own (enormous) cage, she has also created nests and stashes to hide away her treasures, in various places around the house (under the fridge, behind the cabinet, in the cushions of the sofa…). But she’s also very much part of the family – and you should see her appear when a crisps packet is opened!

Luckily for me, Ambrosia is also quite partial to ‘Auntie Dee’. Which pleased me no end – because it meant I could hand the camera over to Tethys and get some photos of us together :)

That said, it seems she’s partial to me as a) a food dispenser; b) an exciting new naturist confidence course; and c) holder of intriguing clicky-flashy machine (she was positively preening for it by the end of my stay). But I adore the wee ratty girl no matter what her reason for paying attention – she’s part of the family, and utterly lovely :)

What do you think?


While I have visited households with pet rats before, Ambrosia is the first I’ve gotten to know as a friend, you know?

    I used to have two rats. They are lovely, lovely creatures and astoundingly intellgent. It’s nice to see you so happy to let Ambrosia enjoy your naked curves, most people wouldn’t. How sad for them.

    She does look to be quite content there on top of you, Dee – but who wouldn’t be :)
    But why on earth is she named after a Devonshire custard? :)

    Oh my, she is adorable! And I’m amazed by your capacity to let her crawl on you naked! I have to wear clothes when I’ve got my rats out. They leave little claw marks all over me even then.

    I’m going to have to be honest, I’d be a bit freaked out to have a rat on my bare skin lol

    Ooooh this so reminds me of my teenage days when I had two rats and how I adored them! Such a pity that I developed allergies later in life!

    This rat is adorable, especially with you naked in the pics 😉

    Oh Dee!

    1. You exude confidence.. something I aspire to. You look amazing.


    2. I never knew rats could be SO darn cute!


    3. Now I fancy some Ambrosia creamed rice!

    Oh I love rodents (not the human variety!) I used to have some myself, rats as well as hamsters and guinea pigs!!!

    Great pics of a lovely cute rat.

    I have never felt drawn to a rat but I have to say the click through on the top image had me going awww… I agree that she is a rather cute thing.

    She’s adorable! I had guinea pigs, gerbils, and hamsters growing up but never a rat; I don’t think were common stock at pet stores back then. More’s the pity!

    Cute name for a cute little beast. A friend owned a rat when we were younger, but his was nowhere near as adorable as Ambrosia. :)

    Eeeuw! Sorry honey. Rats are what I get the exterminator to deal with. You, on the other hand, just beautiful! :)

    I love how if Ambrosia put her weight on one of her legs it makes a deeper dimple… oh to be a small mammal!

    Emily – She was an utter sweetheart. And very well-behaved with her claws, too :)

    Clive – Perhaps the Devonshire Custard was named after her?

    Gabe – Ambrosia is used to the naturist household, and pads about with her claws up. I received one small mark in 10 days (and compared to the cats I live with? It was nothing!).

    Rebel – I was so pleased to get some photos with her this time around :)

    Pea – I’m with you on 1 and 2. I’ll pass on 3 – that’s all for you!

    megan – That’s okay! Everyone is different. I don’t know about a random stranger rat. But Ambrosia is as much family to me as Tethys and the rest of hir household.

    Mia – A school friends of mine had guinea pigs when I was about nine. They were so cute!

    Molly – *nods enthusiastically*

    Kazi – There are some around in New Zealand, these days, but they’re not terribly common. More so than they used to be.

    Jack and Jill – She does seem to have a large supply of cute!

    CuriousMuse – I think that Ambrosia beautifully showcases the difference between wild/feral rats and domestic ones. Just like domestic cats are absolutely a world apart from their feral counterparts, so rats are utterly different too.

    seanfish – Small mammals are lovely – but so are their bigger friends :)

    This large mammal happily agrees.
