About Pickle

Pickle came with his brother Chester to live at Ratty Corner when he was 8 months old, on 21st July 2007. His brother Brunel already lived here. Chester and Pickle were a very clingy pair of rats, quite needy, possibly due to a lack of attention from their first adoptive home over the few months before they arrived. They were quite hormonal, as they were completely unused to smelling other rats. This resulted in me getting bitten once, I'm not sure by which of the pair.

Although they became more used to the smell of other rats, they were still obsessively scent marking when they came out to play, showing dark patches around the scent glands on their backs. I made the decision to have them both neutered, and am really pleased with the result as I believe it has improved their quality of life.

Pickle is a little shyer than his brother Chester, but is a friendly little man. He seeks me out for attention and settles down nicely in my arms for a fuss. He and his brother are a lovely, loving pair and make me so pleased that I decided to bring them to Ratty Corner.
