Here, we will highlight some do’s and don’ts, as well as link to some appropriate wheels!

Adult Coloring Books: Check Out These Pet Rat Titles!

Adult Coloring Books: Check Out These Pet Rat Titles!

Adult coloring books are taking the world by storm. One great sector of the coloring world we’d like to point out is… well… the corner with the ratties! Pet rats have made their big debut in these adult coloring books, and I’m about to show you some of the cool ones that have popped up. Clicking on each image will tell you page counts, give you samples, and prices as well as reviews. They’re worth the mention here, that’s for sure!

Doodle Artist- Fanciful Rats

Annette, the author, has truly outdone herself with Fanciful Rats. This coloring book is 62 pages long, plenty enough to last the average coloring enthusiast. The incredibly intricate designs and textures will take the average person quite some time to complete. Time consuming coloring books are the BEST ones, with more bang for your buck.

Unique & Exotic Pets

This coloring book emphasizes on exotic pets more, but there are plenty of ratty coloring opportunities in here too! This is a more recent release, and has great reviews already. Since exotic pets are not “mainstream”, it can be relatively hard to find coloring opportunities or novelty items that include them.


For the General Animal Lovers: The Art of Zendoodle

Since the ratty market is still kind of slow, I’d like to include one more coloring book: it has many different animals within its pages! Zendoodle still has only 3 ratings, but you can see some sample pages in those reviews. I love the intricate designs within this title as well! I figured it was a worthy mention since a majority of us love nearly any pet!


Hopefully as new titles are produced and released, we’ll be able to add them here for your viewing pleasure. Do any currently own and use adult coloring books? If so, tell us which one your personal favorite is!! We’d love to know what our readers think.

Couponing for Rats: $1 Cheerios at CVS! 2/13/16

Couponing for Rats: $1 Cheerios at CVS!

Alright guys, due to my recent obsession with couponing, I’m going to be sharing all of my rat friendly coupon deals with you. This one definitely inspired me! Instead of paying $3 for a box of Cheerios, how about paying $1? Even if you exceed the limit on your CVS Extrabucks, you’ll still get them for $1.50 per box with the coupon. Great deal, right? If you have any questions, check out the bullet list at the bottom of this post. Print NOW and use by tomorrow 2/13/16 at midnight! Sale ends soon, so get it while you can!!!

The Cheerios Deal

  • Print out the coupon below twice. You have a printing allowance of twice per computer.
  • Go to your local CVS and pick up two 12 oz boxes of Cheerios (or whichever Cheerios have the $1 extrabucks promotion tag).
  • At the register, present your CVS card so extrabucks will print. Once the cashier scans the Cheerios, give them the $1 off 2 Cheerios coupon you printed. Each coupon requires two boxes purchased.
  • Your $1 Extrabucks will print!


Price Break Down

  • Cheerios are on sale at CVS for 2 for $4
  • Coupon is $1 off 2, bringing the price down to $1.50 each, or 2 for $3.
  • After the $1 Extrabucks prints, you have paid $3 for two boxes of cereal with a $1 Extrabuck in your hand. This brings the final price to $1 per box! You can then use that Extrabuck on MORE cheerios!
  1. What Are Extrabucks?           Extrabucks are like CVS “cash” that you can spend at CVS. They are linked to your CVS card and cannot be used with another card.  They print on your receipt, and can be redeemed immediately. Look at it like a CVS gift card!
  2. Why Can I Print Only 2 Coupons?          Couponing sites have a limit per device to prevent abuse. Every computer, cell phone, and tablet is limited to two copies each.
  3. What About CVS Limits?            CVS sets limits on its extrabucks promotions. This limit is usually from anywhere between 1 and 6 times. Check out sales ads for more information.
