Foot fetish

I have a confession: I love the silky soft texture, the tiny pink perfection. I love how each one is unique. Sometimes, I even like to kiss them!

Rat footsies are adorable! They really are different, just like people’s feet are different. Different rats hold themselves in different ways, perhaps tending to place their weight on different parts of the foot. As they age, too, they hunker down more and run around on tippy-toes less.

And here, a small museum of rat feet for your amusement…

Thane’s feet are small and rounded, kind of like Cortez’s feet were.

Godric’s feet are long and pointed, and the nails point upward.

And yet it’s always Eric who seems to have a problem with long nails.

Mordin’s back legs are a bit awkward, with the legs and toes always splayed wide as if he is always struggling to balance.

The best part of all, though, is rat feet in action, doing what they do best – distracting me from getting anything done, unless you count ‘taking photos of rats’ as getting things done.

Stretch!

And best of all, with his little foot in his mouth…

Toes!

What part of your pet do you find just oh so cute?

  2. Definitely cute! Love Godric’s sleeping position. I think it’s really cute how they hold things to snack on with their front paws.
