Each month in our Facebook group we run a "Cutest Rat and Mouse" competition. Members of the Queensland Rodent Fanciers (QRF) Facebook community are encouraged to post a photo of their pet and at the end of the month based on which photo gets the most "likes" a winner is announced.
The winners of April 2018 are: *drum roll*...
Cutest Mouse Winner:
Owned by Alex Morgan Layt, Misha is a 7 month old silver texel mouse who's hobbies include sleeping and eating. Her favourite things to eat are Laucke Mills, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.
Her name came about because Alex was calling her Mishes (misses) Mouse. She didn't have a name and one day Misha popped into my head and it stuck. She enjoys coming out for pats and scratches and of course more treats.
Misha also comes outside to help me garden and tend to my plants which leads to cute photos in my plants
Cutest Rat Winner:
Rolan is owned by John Corfield, who would like to thank you to all who voted for Rolan.
Don't tell the others but he is Johns favourite rat in a gang of eight. He's about 5 months old now and is still the same as when he was first bought home and is the most playful rat John as ever had.
Rolan loves to run up to you, then run away, jump a few times before running back to you over and over. He lives with Jez who is much older than him but since day one they have never fought and always see them sleeping together like best friends.
If they're not together Rolan is often seen sleeping in some strange place waiting to bop his head up when he hears the room door open.
