Ratapalooza 2012


1. Buttons, the Wizard of Best Friends Rodent Rescue (BFRR). He was entered in the Costume Contest but won out to the Beautiful Princess.


2. Joanne from Best Friends Rodent Rescue with Buttons the Wizard on her shoulder


3. Ann was holding this little guy who didn't like his costume.


4. Rodeo Rat PNZY George. So cute. A quick shot as the saddle and rider kept being bucked off. He was held by Jackie B.


5. Dove of Topi Rats, the Princess Rattie, was the winner of the Costume Contest being held by Tirzah.


6. Gerry Rennie with his "Little" Klickitat from the Everett Rescue who won most laid back. The rat that is. Check out his new book on Amazon called "The Rat Worshipper in the nick of time".


7. Brandon with a Most Laid back contestant tBBR SITH Jameson. Love the back feet in the air.


8. Jackie's Phin was also a Most Laid Back contestant.


9. Candace with Jackie K's boy SITH Hania in the most laid back contest.


10. Ok, Lizzy. We don't think this guy counts in the Most Laid Back contest. Nice try though. She said this little one's name is "SITH Tea Trivet".


11. Gerrie Rennie's Klickitat won the most laid back. Check out the ribbon that is bigger than she is. Amazing!


12. The Seattle Times reporter was taking pictures of the rats and their owners during the pet class competitions. The rat who the photographer is taking the photo of - or trying to - is Jorden's rat Phin and was in the Seattle Times article in the Sunday paper after the show. The other girl is Tirzah holding a TOPI rat who is looking the other way.


13. Phin's keeping an eye on things in from a safe place on Jorden's shoulder.


14. Lynn with Lila who has been a previous squishiest rat winner.


15. Candace showing how squishy SITH Dawkins is in the Squishiest contest.


16. Susan gets help remembering things from Epo of BFRR or he was hungry and wanted her glasses.


17. Susan, "I don't have any more spare glasses so please don't eat these, ok EPO? I'll get you more later."


18. Candace is sporting a very cute and comfortable Pingi Hat. SITH Dawkins won the Squishiest. He certainly earned that title - don't you think?


19. Jan with a senior citizen that survived a stroke. She takes great care of Blue Jay and he looks good for it. (CWR Blue Jay JATS)


20. Why is it when you know your little guy can do a great trick that they decide they aren't going to do it in front of a crowd? Just like children, huh? But then, these ratties are our children, right? Jackie K's SITH Kohana wasn't any different while he decided he would much rather sniff the table for girls than go for that yummy food being dangled in front of his face. Guess girls are just more important than food - on those rare occasions of course.


21. So here is Jackie K's SITH Kohana's prize for at least trying.


22. Double Velvetine - what a sweetie.


23. A cute Double Rex Roan who goes by the name of SITH Shrimp owned by Ann of PNZY.


24. Hairless rat wants to comment on something Lynn said. Or is just inspecting her nose hairs?


25. This Double Velvetine looks like he is a wonderful licky boy.


26. Most alike ratties. How cute. One is Frodo.


27. Ari with Topi Pearlscale.


28. Brandon's Nina with her stuffed trophy she won for cutest kitten.


29. Amy holds boy number one - Jackie K's Wicasa.


30. Amy holds boy number two - Jackie K's Hania.


31. And Ladies and Gentlemen here are the boys together... Wonder what they are thinking? - Hania and Wacasa - Jackie says "Is this what we have to put up with for shelter, food, water and love? Can't a rat live in peace?"


32. Prettiest girl TOPI rattie? Rebecca B. from Critter Cave is the human counterpart.


33. Brandon of tBBR with TOPI Vera as a contestant for Prettiest/Handsomest.


34. Jackie K's Nayati telling it like it is.


35. Jackie K's Nayati guarding his Mommy. He dares anyone to hurt her...
