Memories of Noodle
Noodle and his brother were the best little ratties I could ever hope for. The love that they gave me is etched into my heart - I will never forget them. I did not know how to care for rats in the beginning but slowly, and with their help, I transformed into a rat mommie. I remember the moment I fell in love with them - watching them scurry in and out of little bamboo tunnels that were placed on top of my leopard print blanket on my bed. I remember the first time I saw them grab a little twig from my hand, grasping it much the same as a human toddler would. I didn't know how identifiable their individual personalities could be, how smart and cheeky they could be. I didn't know how cute they would look snuggled up with each other.
They followed me all over the country and were my friends when I had none in new areas. They were so brave. I always looked forward to the cuddles and licks when I came home from work although the ones I got in the morning were just as good.
Noodle was definitely the more slow and bumbling of the two, following behind his brother's lead. I remember the first time I saw them play-fight together; slightly alarmed at first because of the unfamiliarity with the sounds and then amused at their mischievousness. Usually, Schmuley would instigate, pinning Noodle down for a good few seconds until Noodle was able to push him off with his hind legs. For about half of his life Noodle was much fatter than Schmuley and not as quick- I could never tell if Schmuley, out of a sense of courteousness or empathy, would let Noodle pin him from time to time, or if he did in fact get the best of him. Noodle was almost always down to cuddle, his favorite place to be scratched was the top of his head. He was a sweet, tubby boy that has my heart forever. He was buried in my backyard wrapped up in one of his favorite shirts to pee on, along with some of his favorite snacks - peas and red pepper.
