Maso aka Flighty rat
she is a lab rat who was created through genetic engineering (mixing the DNA of a cat with that of a rodent. (fun fact! this is something that is actually done now a days though the host doesn't take on any real qualities of the appearance of its new DNA, I took artistic license with that lightly)
she has the same abilities as a normal rat though she can meow and his more like a cat (which is pointless since rats already squeak , hiss and brux-which is like their version of purring)

she can also be drawn adorned with goggles, metallic wings, gears and other stump punk type things :3

I don't own the maine coon picture it is sourced from google
the rat tail picture I do own that'be Ben's tail : D

the main pose here is referenced to: [link] ( I love how this rat is drawn but i find it silly a rat would sneak in to someones house to try and eat a baby (like seriously?)

her colours are based on a variegated hooded rat and down under rat which look like as follows:

also if anyone is thinking of making a rat character let me direct you to this rat markings list very useful :3

I think this is funny, because a while ago I made a rat character named Sonic, (never put on DA for some reason) and she just happens to be a genetically altered lab rat and has coloration similar to Maso. I found this reference and I was like "Whaaaaat, I thought I was one of the only ones with a lab rat fursona..." She even had eartufts, damnit.

So I changed her a little. Gave her pink eyes, so she was like semi-albino. And headphones that send some sort of radiowaves or something that affects her brain. And I added a tail tuft to make her look a bit more different. Sorry if she still looks too similar ^^'

And a random question,
How did you get pictures of Ben and Loki?? My rats will NOT stay still long enough for my camera xD

XD they where asleep this time and my new camera has a sexy sports mode which allows to catch fastess, most of the time i shoot them in their cage though because outside it they never hold still ;w;
