Molly and her bubs - Newbies

hi i have 6 baby rats and more to come i need to get rid of them because my female just had more so if u need rats or want them please come get them just email me and i will send u the info


Four 4 week old babies are at another woman's place of which 3-4 of them will be arriving here this Sunday and I will, along with the 5-6 week old boy being picked up on Saturday, be fostering for 1 week until a rescue comes and gets them.

Then the other storyline begins. Molly and her male friend were bought 3 months ago. The woman had rats before when she was a teenager but only 1 at a time. When someone emailed asking if she was breeding...she wrote:
um i never wanted to but my female keeps having babies i dont want to separate my male and female cuz they have always been together so now she keeps having babies *DOH*

Some of the babies and dad ended up a "some guys house" so tonight I wrangled a ride from my long-suffering friend and Molly ended up here with her 6 eepers that were born last night. Dad was removed the day before so there will be no more litters for little Molly. I was a bit worried about a post-partum pregnancy which can happen within 24 hours of giving birth and obviously what happened for these wee pinkies.
Molly was named by the woman's son, who was angry I was taking her away. The mom never named her even while having her for 3 months.
She said that Molly was basically the same size when she got her but her tail grew a little...

So I am guessing she is about 5-6 months? She has an "old" face, but its brightening up very fast now...hehe.
She's another teeny at 182 grams and this is her 2nd surviving litter. Molly is calm and sweet and feeding her bubs as we speak.
Btw we took her cage as well, so the woman wouldn't be able to fill it again It must've been very full, a tiny cage, a small female, a biiig male, and six 4 week old babies!

There are 3 girls, and 3 boys (Moon and I sexed them, so we *think* we are right)
1 - pink-eyed girl
2 - black-eyed girls
1 - black-eyed boy
2- pink-eyed boys

Meet Molly and her family...

Some people should never own pets.

They are so cute. I'd totally snatch a few females in 8 weeks if I didn't live so far away.

The babies have just turned a week old and are great, nice quiet little things. , I rarely hear them until mom shifts, but I am worried. The Bronlings were insanely loud little “birdies” but once they hit 5 weeks old they were quiet rats. The Sugah’s were quiet little babies, and these little drama queens are shriekers and screamers…I hope it’s not a trend I am seeing.

The boys were the camera hogs today…
