    I'm sorry I couldn't reply before! I submitted Nino long ago and haven't been able to get to the site in a while.

    Nino is 16 months old now (his birthday was in June). A little more info: He lives with four siamese boys in a large, single story ferret cage. He raised these boys from 2 weeks old, because their mom caught pneumonia and couldn't take care of them, and Nino needed some cagemates. They are the closest rats I have (I share my life with 23 rats + 11 tiny baby ones at the moment), never fight. Nino uses them as pillows.

    A lot has happened to him since I sent the submission. In May, he started going downhill. An injury left him blind in one eye and he had a growing lump on his stomach. The lump kept growing and looking nasty, but in June the lump started shrinking and then vanished all together (it turned out to be an infected abcess rather than a tumor). Last week, he sudennly opened his "bad eye" and that is totally healed too! So, now he's the picture of health again (besides the lingering tilt and scars on his skin).

    We are glad his story could touch you. I simply had to share this incredible guy with the world.

    Attached is Nino's "before" pic. The day my friend brought him home from the pet store. Lucky for him, she works at a vet clinic and could get him care ASAP. (That picture was the reason I though hairless rats were really fragile, but they actually aren't. Nino was just severely neglected and beaten up by his pet store cagemates.)

    You can see some more pics (happier pics) of Nino at

    Again, thanks for all the kind words, and we are glad to share our story.

    Vickie, Nino's "mom"
