I want...

MORE RATS!


So while I have the most wonderful ratty boys who I love...GGMR has struck me again and I wanna add,just one or two more rats to my family.


I have TONS of spare cages collecting dust in the closets and why should they sit and collect dust???


However I am gonna wait at least a week or two.
I am going camping with friends for a few days and well it wouldn't be fair to get some new rats who are gonna be stressed already and then leave them.Plus my sister is going to be looking after my current babies and I don't wanna give her more "work" by bringing another rat or two home.


So while I hate waiting...it has to be done!
I almost got another rat today,but then realized...it is better to wait until I come back from camping...


Waiting is the hard part!

Boy of boy I think it's the time of the year, I to, have also been tempted. There was this rat up for adoption that I really wanted. The previous owner had put him in adoption only because he had started sneezing when they first got him and they didn't want him just because of that! I wanted to take him right out and give him a HUGE cuddle, tell him everything was okay and take him home with me. But I already have Pepper and the others to look after and we are also going away on holiday for a week, so I thought I better not.
Well, I think adding more rats will be great, hurry, hurry, I want pics of new rats

I have the ggmr remedy. Breed two different females resulting in two litters of a total of 20 babies. Spend the first 2 weeks supplemental feeding them four times a day because one mommy isn't feeding. Spend the next 5 weeks in a mad scramble to keep up with the rat poo, then finally get them all placed on week seven. Then see if maybe you can put some of your adults on antibiotics they hate and fight against twice a day. I can tell you from experience it works! I can honestly say for the first time in a long time I do not want more rats!

Exactly, especially if they can be sickly or otherwise problematic rats. Like maybe if they can scoot their butts to the edge and poo outside the cage every single time or if they could refuse to eat the same food all the others eat, or better yet if they could maybe fight with every rat you have and then look all pitiful and lonely when you separate them so that you end up spending all of your time on that one rat. Yup that'll do it!
