I'm getting new rats pretty soon. Once I've built a home for them I'll be away to pick up three little guys to live in it.

Aahh, I'm impatient.

I'm planning on naming one or two of them after locations in the game www.urbandead.com (I've picked out "Caiger" and "Creedy" as possibilities). Who wants to help me with a third name? (Preferably not personality-specific, for obvious reasons :D)

Wow, same here! My mum's work friend is heading off to uni, and she has a pet rat who needs a good home, so we're taking care of it from next week :D

I like rats; they're great fun :D

How about Cosmos? Just a random non-gender specific name that sprang to mind :cln:

I suggest you name him Telephone, Encyclopedia or Bookshelf. Makes cute nicks like Telly, Ency and Booky.

For a male rat, that name would suggest something quite different from Kit Kats. :vlol:

Hehe! Telephone would be pretty cute, but my sister would never let me get away with it. She'd rename him "Tinkerbell" or something instead (even though they'd be in my custody). :p

Cosmos = Somsoc = Ingsoc

George Orwell, yay! Hehe.

Maybe "Kid" (after Kid Eternity), if he's got white fur.
"Skaarj" (if one's really ugly or has crazy markings) after the Unreal Tournament aliens. :p
"Cereal Killer" :cln: (Hackers; Emmanuel Goldstein's nickname (also a salute to Orwell))

I called my two mice Bubble and Squeek.

And when Squeek died the adverts with the Aero chocolates catchphrase was "Bubble, no squeak" :'(

I had not cried so much in my life :'(

That's very sad Lavinder :( :( :hug: I really liked that advert, but I can see how it would have been very upsetting :(

Aww, bad coincidence. Poor Squeek. :hug:

When we were burying my guinea pig Patch, we'd filled in the hole and my mum was like "ok, stamp on the patch now..." (to pack the earth down) and I just looked at her like this: http://img370.imageshack.us/img370/8671/cry2qd9.gif

Yeah, quite a few people have laughed when i've told them *shakes fist*

Awww, I love guinea pig's with thier little Sun Kwon sounding sounds! :eek: I would have looked at my mother with a look of "Are you mad?" Then I would probably walk off..

Have you had a pet before, or are your parents just paranoid like that? >_<

You could try getting a couple of goldfish and a cheap fishtank for them, and look after them, then in a year or so try asking for a more interesting pet - by that time your parents will see if you're responsible enough by how well you've looked after the fish.

If that's to me, then yes. I have a cat..It was really hard to get it. I beged, but mom didn't wanted to take him, but then no-one wanted to take him, so we took it:D
And, if my cat will die, I will never get new one :(
