These two cute little outfits are from our "LAST LAUGH LINE". It is a flip joke to the snakes that did not eat the rattie! All of the items in the "Last Laugh Line" are snake print. If you do not see the humor in this, then please just don't submit a photo or buy the products. It is just for fun. Here's a little poem I wrote to go with the "Ha Ha Snakey Line" HaHa Snakeys
I once was meant to be food, For a slimy and slippery brood. As I awaited the fate, You came, and not a minute too late. Now I live in your house, Sometimes inside your blouse I also live in your heart Cause you gave me a new and fresh start I dream of your love And thank God up above you came on that day and took me away.
So now in the comfort of your warm and nice home, I cuddle in snake skin as you talk on the phone. HaHa Snakey, you did not get me, but your snake skin now gives comfort you see.

This little Rattie Backpack has been a looooong time coming. I have been making backpacks for dogs and goats and llamas and saddlebags for horses for over 20 years. I first made this little bitty one about 12 years ago for Beanie Babies. I have been working on this in my head for awhile. Making them exactly as I had for the Beanie Babies or even the dogs would NOT work for a rattie to actually wear. So here it is a little Rattie Gamblers BackPack! that will actually stay on your rattie and be comfortable for it to wear. The dice are sewn on, the coin (one per order) tucks into the pocket. The coin can double as a toy and trick prop for your rattie. The coin is gold toned and is light weight and textured enough for the small animals to pick up in their mouths (I have a Guinea Pig that uses this same coin for a trick prop).
HATS, HATS, HATS! Hats with Feather, Santa Inspired Hats, Hand Crafted Stitch by Stitch Crocheted Hats! Your ratties are going to look AMAZING in these little hats!

CONGRATS TO OUR MAY WINNERS - CONGRATS KIMBERLY!!
I LOVE Rattie Caddies! I use these with my ratties, especially new and baby ratties. Ever had your rat pets run down into your clothes? They love the feeling of the dark and safe place.
Rattie Caddies are wonderful for bonding with a new or foster rattie as well as keeping a busy rattie in one place rather then running up and down your arms and body under your shirt!
I designed these after noticing how much our ratties LOVE to play in my husbands hoods on the back of his sweatshirts. I make these is flannel, polar fleece, cotton prints and mesh. The polar fleece and flannel will add extra warmth to your own neck in the winter. The mesh is wonderful for summer months.
This one is a BLUE SOFT MESH RATTIE CADDY and it will fit most people.

Once a rat lover always a rat lover.

Raddy Caddies are hand or machine washable. I hang mine to dry.

April 2008 CONGRATS!! LOOKY, LOOKY WHO TOOK THE BOOTY! CONGRATS TO DEBI'S CUTIE!!
The Agile Rat is after all an Agility Site for Rats.... so here not only do we have a Fancy Pet Rat Agility set of Tunnels for ratties to either practice Rat Agility or play with and sleep in in their cages. But also a cute little Spring Dress with Bow.
The first one, an Open Tunnel, is hand crocheted. I love these colors, soft yellow, greens, purples, blues... really pretty. The Open Tunnel has an approx 3" opening and is approx 11" long.
The second Tunnel is a Closed Tunnel. It is made from polar fleece to match the Open Tunnel. It is approx 3 3/4" wide in the front for the rattie to go into and approx 12" long. This Tunnel too can be used for Fancy Rat Agility or just a cage item the ratties will love!!
The little Spring Dress is really cute. It has a pink top of polar fleece with a green bow. The skirt is a flower print and it is trimmed with lace. The waist size on this dress is 7" it will stretch a bit and a snug fit is a good fit. The measurement from the neck toward the tail it 6 3/4".
We are also adding these cute little gold toned rat shaped pierced earrings. I have a pair of these and really enjoy wearing them.
The earrings, or the rats themselves are just over 1/2" long. You will love these!! Cute any day, real cute for the year of the Chinese New Year of the Rat. The earrings are far cuter then this photo makes them look. Forgive me, I have not mastered the art of photography.
Each of these items, as always, are new and never used or worn nor been around other animals. They were handcrafted by me in our nonsmoking home.
Make a "pinata" for your rattie with a small box and some tissue paper. Put treats inside the box and close the box, cover the box with tissue paper (children's school glue is safe for use). If you also put a small bell in the pinata box you will hear the bell ring when they are playing with and opening their treat box. This is great fun for the ratties. If you use a box big enough for them to sleep in, they will.
