Yey I'm getting baby dumbos, wahoo!
Okay so everyone knows my ordeal a few months ago with rats we acquired at the petstore. We fell in love with them but unfortunately could not keep them well even with several rounds of anitibiotics, poor little dears. So I swore never again to buy a petstore rat. That's when my husband and I (we got married a week ago) did some research and found a small breeder a couple of hours a way. She breeds several varieties of dumbo rats every now and again when she has a market. She absolutely obsesses over them and all her breeders are pets first with regular vet visits etc. She also makes a habit of pretreating breeders for common ailments like myco and mites so that new babies run no risk of being exposed even if she does get small problems in her colony. Anyway, she is expecting two litters very soon and we get first dibs. We're getting two girls and two boys so that we can have the varied experience of male and females this time. Anyway, I'm so excited because dumbos are soo cute and sweet and smart and we have missed our ratties so much. Talking with this breeder we have actually become long distance friends and she really sounds great, I just can't wait to get them. I don't think that the rest of both litters is spoken for if anyone near North Alabama is looking for dumbos.
