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.
Midnight, Rain, and Georgia were adopted today by Ana. Congratulations! Georgia, especially, showed she was a happy girl by boggling on Ana's shoulder while she was picking.
You didn't get to meet these three rats, really, since I hadn't yet listed them but they were given up for adoption to the Petco in Fox Chapel and they called me to take them. They were with us since July 1st.
These three girls now make 35 rats adopted so far this year! Add that to the 35 we have currently and the two who passed and we've had 72 different rats this year, so far. Hard to believe sometimes!
Precious was adopted today by Scott and Laurie from Virginia. She is headed to live with her new sister Lacey. Congratulations!
Formerly Snap (above) and Aladdin (below), they are looking like some happy ratties! Thanks for the picture!
Maple, Vash and Blizzard were adopted by Heather today. Congratulations!
Additionally, snugly Hank is again available!
Hank and Ray went home with Danielle to be companions for her existing rat Cinnamon. Congratulations!
Zara and Inga were adopted today by McKenna and are off to their new home in New York. Congratulations!
Unfortunately, Minnie has left us for better places. We are clueless why she passed but are presuming it may be something genetic. We weigh our rats weekly and with her most recent weigh-in noticed a loss of some weight rather than the moderate growth we expected. That morning she was fine, energetic and no other symptoms we could detect. That evening, however, she was bad enough to need fluids along with antibiotics. Fluids and more meds the following morning, but by the evening she was gone. Rest well, girl!
We had Charlie neutered a few days ago. He came back to us after the original adopted found out he was being relocated. Since he came to us as a solo rat we looked to introduce him in with some of our existing boys. Unfortunately, Charlie's testosterone was raging. A few days later, now, and he is beginning to work through introductions with Crockett, Tubbs, and Ray. He will be up for adoption again once he heals up, but of course his adoption fee will be increased by the cost of his neuter. No problem if he stays with us, he's one of our favorites!
Additionally, Leia and one of our other recent rescues had surgery to remove mammary tumors. If you'd care to donate to help defer some of the cost, it would be much appreciated!
These will primarily be posted by Chris, a rat lover for nearly 40 years.
