The patter of little ratty feet

Heh. I got a bit carried away about that auction. I told myself I wasn't going to buy him, but I just had to put down a bid on him. I was expecting to be outbid, but it never happened. I won him. It's more money than I should be spending, but I'll take responsibility for it. I'll try to give him a good home.

And this fursuit isn't intended to replace Rattus. Rattus knows how much I love him. He saw how glad I was when I got him back after he went missing in transit in America. I almost cried with relief when I saw my suitcase at Sydney airport after my long flight home. I'll make room for three fursuits. Lots of people do that and more.

And Oz, you'll get to wear him too.

Woohooo! That's super! I'm sure it will be nice to have another ratty character in the family. ^^

Well I really do hope it all works out for the best for all of you. And your growing family.

Good to know you will take responsibility when you should, and that after an action. Even with a little bit of regret possibly associated with it. You will still look after and care for the result, giving him a good home. Quite the responsible adult indeed. Even though you probably could have prevented it if you used some sort of dicipline or even a method of protection to prevent that particular outcome. But, none the less. It is what it is, and it is too late to change it now.

What is in the past has happened already, you just have to accept it and move forward, as you cannot change the past.

So, congrats on your new boy, and I hope for the best for both of you and a smooth transition into your family unit.

Congrats on winning him. I couldn't think of anyone else having him. I hope I get to meet him one day. I can tell you love Rattus very much. I know the feeling of your fursuit being a part of you.

It would be great seeing Rattus and the new ratty in action together too. :)

Wait, three fursuits? You must be including Ristin's in that number, unless you have a suit I'm not aware of *eyes you*

At least he didn't end up being over $2000 like people were speculating!

I'm sure you'll give him a good home. Have you thought about a name yet?

WOW!

You are so lucky I couldn't get near the PC during the auction. I was going to bid up to $2000US for this guy. I'm in love with the suit so much!

If you have problems with size (He is quite small) I'd be happy to take him out for you if need be.

Congrats you lucky lucky rat!

According to the specs, I'm only a cm over the maximum height (if that--imperial is kind of imprecise) so I think it will be okay. <crosses claws> I'm more worried as to whether you'll fit. I'm keen for you to wear him too as I can only wear one suit at a time.

Hoo! Not a cheap acquisition, to be sure, but definitely a fun character - you'll have a load of fun, no question. ^_^

Are there other species you'd enjoy being, temporarily? Could even go for something femme next time.. =:)

Glad to hear it went to a good home and owner that will care for it.

You were bidding too?! If only I'd known! I wouldn't have bid against you because I know at least I'd have a reasonable chance of seeing him at cons.

I only put down a few hun, I couldn't afford what he went for.

He he, I was wondering if you were going to get that suit. ;)

Tenax has been wanting a rat suit of his own, and when I saw it, I had to tell him about it. Like you, cost was a big concern. But, I am glad to see he went to a good home. I'm sure you will have LOTS of fun with this guy. Enjoy!

Squeak! Cool deal.

I'd beg to get to wear him except he doesn't fit me... So I'll settle for hugs, okay? ;)

Enjoy the rattiness!

At least now, whenever you wear this new acquisition, you'll put less wear on Rattus! :D
