Doodle 491 – Picky Rats

Doodle 491 - Picky Rats

We ran a little low on Rat food tonight and it was too late to hit the pet store, so we decided to make them a nice mix of fruit, carrots, what was left of their pellets and a little cheese.  It was funny to watch them sort through it because the both seemed to like different things.

Happy Father’s day to all you dads out there!  In honor of the day, here’s a really awesome pencil drawing my dad drew that he gave to our boys.

    I love those cartoon animals you draw. And I see your dad’s got a decent style as well. It seems it’s in the family or something. :)

    Nice Drawlings! hey, just a question do you know how to turn your doodles into vid games? kinda wanted 2 do that with my drawlings. That or make sprite videos (you know, taking 6 bit – 18bit game models such as Game boy advance visions of mario and sonic games.) I Believe the sonic vs pac-man videos you saw where sprite vids.

      our hairless dumbo rat is Piglet and our fancy rat is named Sniffles (she sneezed a lot when we first got her).

    Hahaha, nice picture. I’m thinking about buying either a hamster or some rats. Those two look very cute and they have funny names too :)

    • vonholdt Says:

      we actually have both hamsters and rats in our house, and rats are much more playful, but need more attention then the hamster.

    Nice job! Have they ever bit you?

    • vonholdt Says:

      they nibble a little sometimes when they are playing and can get a little carried away, but they never seem to with the boys
