I got a call from a lady who had 2 rats that she found in a tiny box in the park, She doesn't like rats so I went to get them!

They were 2 beautiful girls very well handled and very friendly! The brown hooded rat was licking my fingers instantly :D The other was a PEW, she had very severe head tilt and was running around with her head on the floor, She was such a gorgeous girl and it obviously didnt affect the crazy girl!

I took them home and fed her up and they drank so much water, not suprising with the really hot weather we had!

Headtilt girl

Brwn hooded

Unfortunatly I couldnt keep them. My situation isnt the best right now or I would of snapped them up, I gave them into a rescue who I trust alot, the lady is rat crazy and shes putting them up for rehoming where the new homers will need to be checked out before taking them. The head tilt girl wont live very long, She has a tumour but shes in no pain.

I am so glad you have them. Rats give so much love and joy and they deserve that in return.

Great job, Muddy4Paws!!!! I'd LOVE to get a buddy for Winkie. Unfortunately, I'm at my max with 1 rat and 5 cats in a one room apt.

It was so nice of you to help the poor ratties. I'm sure the rescue will find them a great forever home. :D
