We Got Baby Rats! | Loepsie’s Life

Well, it’s here again. Blue Monday, supposedly the most depressing day of the year. I have to say, as I look out the window, the weather is absolutely perfect for the occasion. Dark, rainy, dreary… Luckily, I have no reason to feel down at all. As I’m sitting here, typing this blog post, I have two adorable little baby ratties tucked away in my scarf.
