These gorgeous girlies certainly have a story to tell! One of our RSPCA Inspectors received them as an unexpected delivery via their owner, a young girl who knocked on her door saying her mother would not let her keep the rats and she has to get rid of them, she wouldn’t give her name or address and as the Inspector had young children at home she couldn’t follow the girl home. The cage as pictured was completely unsuitable for rats, it was way too small and the floor was made of wire which would have caused a lot of discomfort for their soft feet to walk on, there was much rust too from the cage not being cleaned and kept dry. They are now in a huge rat cage with a nice floor so they can rummage around, climb, run, they have various toys and tubes and wood to chew on to keep those teeth trim! They are really friendly too, very handleable and Cloud even licks my hand. They adore yoghurt drops, pellets and muesli, crusty bread and veg, even a bit of apple doesn’t go amiss! They are fantastic little pets.
