This is a photo I took of one of the rats that my boyfriend and I adopted. The two rats are boys and they will be 6 weeks old on Friday (4/29). This one is named Calvin. They are rex rats, which means they have a gene that makes them have wavy fur and curly whiskers. The rex gene is weird and if they have two rex genes (one from each parent) they can become a hairless rat. But if they just have one rex gene they can sometimes go through weird phases where they will lose a patch of fur but then grow it back. So far Calvin has lost most of the fur on his back but we wont know if he is going to be completely hairless or if he will grow it back until he gets older.
This is the Sketch stage of my comic strip. These are two redraws of my first two comic strips. My comic is called Cat Shack and the cat’s name is Chester and the dog’s name is Dakota. Next I will be coloring them in photoshop. When Chester is colored, he will look more like a silver tabby, and when Dakota is colored, he will look more like a rottweiler. If you want to see what they used to look like you can visit my website at www.catshackcomic.com and click on comic. :)
I had to bring in Mudkip, my axolotl, to the vet this morning because he has white blotches on his skin. Hopefully it is just a temperature problem and nothing worse.
I have been so busy with the website that I forgot to post anything this week or last week. The website is up though at www.catshackcomic.com. I will start posting again :)
