One of my favorite Rat Rescues is enjoying the wonders of baby rats … two litters worth actually. Brittney, the fine young lady that runs Star’s Rat Rescue, recently took in two (pregnant) female rats who gave birth to a total of 20 baby rats! You can follow along with their daily progess reports at the RatChatter forums, here are the links:
Bear has been an iPaper model in the past but being as he is so photogenic here is another rat friendly ipaper featuring Bear. Bear is a special fancy pet rat kept by RatPirate on the RatChatter forums. He wasn’t feeling well of late, but appears to have made a full recovery as indicated by this iPaper.
A little smile for the readers of Rattitude, with so much sad news to write about lately this little guy brings a big smile. Thanks for sharing, Amber.
After a short overnight stay with Mrs.R and myself, The Bird was released outside this morning. I like the name, The Bird, simple yet not too easily attached to.
After making sure our feline friends had their breakfast this morning, I opened The Bird’s temporary home to make sure it was getting some food and water. A very patient 10 minutes of dribbling water and food near The Bird’s beak and I was relatively satisfied something was eaten and drank.
Then to my surprise The Bird jumped up and flew through the kitchen and around the corner before unceremoniously flying into a mirrored door and ending up on the floor. I quickly ran to pick it up as two of our cats quickly ran to investigate. No harm … no fowl for the kitties either. We waited about an hour or so more and made sure to give The Bird more food and water then outside we went …
… and of course an iPaper of The Bird perched on my finger outside …
We left The Bird near a large puddle that usually forms after a rainfall in a small quiet park area behind where we live. We saw a female robin eating and drinking nearby and felt it was the best place for The Bird to be.
