Loki was one of my favorite rats out of the 10 rats I had altogether. He was one of the most affectionate, sweet rats I had the pleasure of raising. He was kept in a two-story cage lined with fleece and was given fruits & veggies and all the ratty care he needed. He stayed with his two brothers, Jude and Stanley, and three female rats: Leigha, Esme, and Piper. He bonded with Esme – they would snuggle together in their hideaway.

He was also very sweet with me; he would lay on my shoulder and give neck/ear kisses and play in my hair with his hands (they have human-like hands!!). I was very happy to have one of the photos painted, and the vet also offered me a memorial piece (picture #3) to remember him by.
