Hello there. I'm new here and just wanted to introduce myself. :wavey: I currently have 7 ratties. I started with 2 from a pet store on July 4 where they were feeder rats. I got 2 females.. well, one was pregnant and 23 days later, I had 10 baby rats. I had found homes for some of them and right before they became fuzzy, I realized they had mites. I didn't do enough research and gave all the rats Ivermectin. I woke up the next day to a few dead rat babies and more died within the day, totaling 6. The 4 that were left all made it and are doing well now. I had to give them formula and nurse them back to health, but am so thankful for them. They're wonderful. So I now have the 2 original girls from the pet store, 2 baby boys and 2 baby girls who are now 2 months and I also have a hairless who was bought for me when the babies passed because I was such a mess over what a stupid mistake I made. I'm happy to have the ones that I have and can't believe what an impact they've made on me. They're all my little loveys.
