3 New Girls in our Home

How much furor can be created by adopting 3 pretty little female hooded rats?

Hmmm … let’s see …

It was a nice drive, even if the weather wasn’t the greatest. The neighborhood we ended at was nice and the family that gave into our care the three girls were very nice and quite friendly.

Was it odd that we were offered to take in three healthy, alert, young females and a rat friendly modified Ferret Nation for free? Yes.

Do we believe there is more to the story than we were told? Most likely.

If one, or two, or all three are pregnant will we be able to provide for their needs? Yes.

Did we actively go looking to adopt three more girls and get a free Ferret Nation? No.

Quite honestly the ad for the girls was pointed out to us on a forum we do not feel welcome at. It became apparent almost immediately that their typical rhetoric would once again discourage someone from making a good decision. As we followed the ensuing posts we saw that someone needed to make an effort in contacting the original keeper and offer to help.

We did not expect to be offered the girls and the Ferret Nation, but we accepted.

We did not expect to be vilified and accused falsely on the forum we found the ad at but it did not surprise us, although some of the individual comments did.
