Searching

So I am now looking for the "perfect" rat.
I love my two boys,but I just want a couple more!


I would like some more rats.Male or female doesn't matter,but of course I am partial to the boys! I checked with the local rescue and they don't have any and nobody has any listed in the paper or anything right now.And there are NO breeders here.Newfoundland is a small place.Someone I talk to,offered two of her rats to me and I agreed to take them,but now it is trying to find transportation.I also never heard from her in a few days.


I was into one of the pet stores today and they only had TWO rats.Both female.I took an interest because they were so cute.A black hooded and an agouti.However while playing with them,the agouti bit me hard on the finger!!! She didn't draw blood,but it hurt.It was not just a nip either.So I passed.I know you can get rats out of that,after all I have rescued a very bitey rat once and with some "work"...she became a very friendly rat.However these two rats today just didn't feel "right".


So I am searching for another rat or two and will keep you updated in this thread.

I'd help you if I could, but Nashville to Newfoundland is one heck of a trip! Good luck in your search. You'll know when it feels right!

That would make you one darn determined ratty owner! And wouldn't it be disappointing if you got here and weren't really feeling connected to any of these?!

I got a new boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


New thread about him,with pics coming soon!
I went to the pet store today to get a new rat carrier and I just had a look at the ratties (of course).Well nestled between a bunch of standard rats which were cute,but plain looking (albino mainly) was a little bareback dumbo! He was the ONLY one there and since it is hard to get dumbos here,I got him.My beloved Ninja (R.I.P) was my last dumbo.


Well I am not sure how old he is,but is young and so cute.He is also quite friendly.No name yet,but I have a few suggestions!!


Oh and I got a cute carrier too!
