I live in Wallingford, CT. My teenage son graciously rescued two baby
rats from a pet store the day their mother died. We were told that
they were sisters and cautioned that they might not survive. The
rats, Storm and Spirit, have become wonderful, healthy, pets. As you
guessed, they have also become parents. Momma Spirit has done a great
job raising her ten beautiful babies, but we need to find her and nine
of her little ones great homes. The pet store will take them from us,
but we are afraid they will end up mistreated or used as snake food
We think we have 3 black rex, 1 black rex dumbo, 2 hairless, 1
hairless dumbo, 1 gray (Russian blue?) rex, and 2 gray (Russian
blue?). The babies will be four weeks old this Sunday night.
We've been unsuccessful at sexing, but a woman named Cathy is coming
from Gales Ferry to help us with this weekend.
Please help us find these ratties good homes!
