Oh dear....

I'll try to keep this as short as possible. My little girl Topaz passed away (as some of you know) and my mother stoped breeding rats because she hasn't been feeling good and I have the rescue going. Well my aunt who lives a good 5 hours away from us came to visit and said he has gifts for me. I was thinking clothes or something but she got me 3 new little rats!!! However when we walked into my room she felt bad because now I have 13 rats, My mom had called her and told her about Topaz but didn't tell my aunt about my resuce. So she thought I only had Nazarath lol, So she felt bad but I told her not to. She said I could put them up for adoption but being that they are gifts that would just be rude. They've been through thier 2 weeks about... 3ish weeks ago and are doing fine. Their names are as fallows:
Ratticus: Double Red Dumbo male (about 10ish weeks old)
Xandria: Blue hooded dumbo (about 7weeks old)
Berry Silver: Blue Berkshire (about 6ish months old)

Hope everyone enjoy the pictures!!!

thnx!!!
however I have more good/bad news. My aunt got these little guys from a co-worker who ended up having them make her sneez. I doubt they were kept together because my aunt had them all apart (as did the woman) however Berry Silver apears to be Pergo. So i'm asuming that she A. came from a pet store B. the woman tried breeding rats and just couldn't handle how many she had/ she might have gotten rid of all of them.
So I'M SUPER excited and not at the same time. I think everyone knows what I mean, I'm moved her into a new more secluded cage so she wont be bothered. I'm also going to cook her up some eggs later . She's scheduled for a vet visit tomorrow along with one of my boys.

It's hard to tell from the pics.But I had pregnant rats before and they had bellies like that,before they got bigger I mean.

Pregnant rats appear pear shaped!

She looks pregnant to me as well.

Maybe my experience (tons of pics of my first and only oops litter last August) might help.

Goosemoose Pet Portal - Prominent nipples on young female...EEEEPERS Finally!!! Update 08/21

Also start daily weighing with a digital scale. She looks the same size as my Bronwen was and this was her weights.

Bronwen’s Weight Gain (4 months old)
Aug. 11 – 267 g
Aug. 14 – 279 g
Aug. 15 – 289 g
Aug. 16 – 302 g
Aug. 17 – 319 g
Aug. 18 – 329 g
Aug. 19 – 346 g
Aug. 20 – 354 g
Aug. 21 – 364 g (birth)
Sept. 14 – 278 g

Btw now that you have a rescue you will be experiencing this a lot. You might want to cultivate a good relationship with your vet to see if he/she will do e-spays in the future.

thnx!

. Thanx lilspaz (and everyone else!)
My vet also helps and vet checks the dogs & cats at the rescue I volunteer at . So we've been chatting and so fare she's been giving me the same discount I get at my local pet store, which is about 15% off. We've discussed surprise litters and she told me she can problem do 40-50% off. It's all a little sketchy since we're still new but that’s the numbers we've worked out so fare . Thanx again everyone, I'll get some updated pics and get her weight asap .

Oh I will, Here are some updated pics. She doesn't seem much bigger but I haven't compaired pics. I also haven't gotten her weight (need to find a scale my vet will let me borrow, unless I can find one online). She's still very happy and an active lil girl.

Edit: she seems about the same size, I swear if she ends up just being a fat little thing. I'm buying her a tread mill lol.
