Captain & Bruce were adopted, shown left, and two of the Spice Girls, Emma and Victoria were adopted, shown right!
Aladdin, left and Snap, right are back with us due to housing issues with their adopter. She did a wonderful job with them, they are both very friendly, with Aladdin being the more shy boy. We will update pics soon as they are no longer this small!
6 adoptable boys and 7 adoptable girls have (finally) been added. I would be all fancy and post pics and links on here but unfortunately I am fast losing consciousness. Ok, fine, one picture.
Nearly all of our available rats are now listed with pictures. There are five girls we took in a week ago that I've not yet gotten pictures of, plus they are still settling in while we evaluate them.
But anyways, browse through! There are quite a number of wonderful rats to choose from.
If you are interested in Eric, Pan, Aladdin, or Phillip, please choose Mickey, Snip, Snap or Donald to be their friend. It helps us not have a cage full of white rats and it helps you so you can tell them apart when you get them home. They are all wonderful boys, it is only a color difference.
Here is a teaser picture of Eric, one of the baby boys!
Unfortunately, as of this evening, the rats are only listed on Petfinder since it will take an hour or two to add them on here.
However, there is a Petfinder tab on the website, here. I'll get everything updated here shortly.
So, Edith (on the left) was rescued on March 10th. An...interesting...man bought her from the pet store a few days previous and decided to return her. So, I gave her a new home rather than return her to pet store life.
So, on the 23rd, we noticed that Edith was looking a bit rounder than is normal.
...and on the 27th, it becomes clear why. Quite odd someone would buy a rat, introduce it to a male, then return it. But whatever, his loss.
So, five weeks from now and we'll have some youngsters (and Edith) available! Stay tuned.
Take a look through our Adoptable Rats tab, eight new rats have been added. Four of them are boys, Hank, Mack, Crockett & Tubbs. Four of them are girls, Toy, Lola, Edith & Sherry.
I've noticed we have adopted out quite a lot more girls than boys so I'd like to take a moment and promote them as it limits our ability to rescue additional boys. Typical boy rats are much more interested in humans than the typical girl rat. They are much more likely to sit still and enjoy being petted, fall asleep on you, snuggle with you, and so on. Most of our boys are right behind my computer chair and I'll often hear bruxing behind me with one of our boys saying, "Gosh I really like being so close to you, I'm a happy rat" as I turn around and see them looking at me from a corner. Yes, boys are physically larger. Yes, they have danglers. I still really think you'll make an excellent choice by choosing a pair. Here's a boy now, hoping to meet you! (Human not included.)
