We have been away for a while on vacation in Florida, so posts have been scarce. But we are back now, and on our way back, we picked up three beauties from the Exotic Animal Rescue and Pet Sanctuary (EARPS) in Indianapolis, IN. Our trip brought us right through Indy, and EARPS had rats available from a pet store confiscation by animal control.
They can be a little skittish with sudden movements, but they are not shy and will come scampering right back when they realize all is fine. They are super friendly and do not bite.
The three girls are currently in quarantine, but eventually will be introduced to Pirate. We are keeping our fingers crossed that introductions will go well. Hopefully, the fact that the new ratties are all female and young (and spayed of course) will help things along.
