Well, I was at the pet store.....for some reason it's like it waits for me to walk in and just see something wrong....but anyways, I always walk over by the rat cages and talk to them. And this itty bitty little rat came out of the wooden house they had in there for them and it looked waaaaaaaay to small to be weaned fully. So, me having the soft spot for rats that I have and me being VERY upset at the pet store. I bought him, (they made me pay 17.99 ) and he is here and is on a formula diet right now. If anyone could give me an estimate of his age I would be very happy.

Oz, he probably is about 3 weeks old. My babies generally eat solids at three weeks, and stop nursing. At this point, I also take Mom out for a few hours a day to visit the other girls, and get some much needed rest.
So you can give him solid foods as well. I would also try and get him to eat some KRF (Kitten Replacement Formula), Hard Boiled Egg Mash, and a little bit of Oatmeal, with a little bit of meat bsed baby food in it (my ratties love the chicken/sweet potato food FYI).
I'm glad you saved him though! Congrats! Now Uno has a Pal! Yay for Uno!!!!
Hey Oz, how is the little guy!
I'm glad that he's essentially stuck to you like glue, he'll be a Mamma's Boy for sure! Have a name for a the little guy?
They also have "pre-paid" credit cards that you can get online, or at Wal Mart, like Greendot, Account Now, Rush Card....that you can either put money on at a Western Union, or buy the "money packs" at Wal Mart, and other discount retailers and drug stores.

I hope he is doing well...please give him kisses from me, and a little extra treat!
