I was thinking...
So, I'm going to new york for a week to visit my parents while my boyfriend is at his parent's house.
My friend who is wonderful with rats and who knows Louna is taking care of her while I'm away (at her house).
But I really want to get Louna a friend when i come back, and once I convince my boyfriend I will adopt. (it shouldn't be hard to convince him now that he loves louna, i mean what's the difference between one or two?)
But I was thinking, I can't get Louna's mom out of my head, in that little cage with the same male, pregnant 90% of the time, taken out by the tail because the workers are scared of her. She was very nice to me, didn't try to escape from my hands, didn't bite, was pretty calm.
I have no idea how old she is, i'm gonna ask today but do you think she would be a good cagemate for Louna?
Since they are mother-daughter, would they automatically get along or they've already forgotten each other and since the mamma's older it may cause problems to re-introduce her to louna?
I know I will have to work extra hard to earn her trust, she's at LEAST 6 months old since she looked like an adult already when I first saw her 2 months ago, but she could be more than a year old. But I really want to "save" her, i know another rattie will just take her place at the store, but i've become attached to the poor girl.
Do you think it would be a good idea to consider her as a cagemate for louna instead of a random other baby girly?
