H2, aka Aramis, one of our three boys from the Toronto Humane Society is this week’s Rat of the Week.
He is an adorable little boy that we are “fostering” while he waits for a dental procedure. The veterinarian that is performing the procedure is very close to were we live which I believe made it that much easier for the Toronto Humane Society (THS) to allow us to care for Peanut, at least until then. Peanut currently has his profile on the front page of the THS web site. The profile explains Peanut’s special needs:
I have maloccluded incisors, which means that my front teeth grow all funny, making it difficult for me to eat. Before I go home, the vets here are going to remove them!
We will be taking care of Peanut before he has his operation, as his foster family, with every hope that we will become his permanent adoptive home.
… but what about the rats?
Please remember the Toronto Humane Society is funded strictly by donations; AND, is a no kill shelter! They can use all the help people can offer. Also, something that is near and dear to our hearts is the re-homing of the rats they currently have in their care … approximately 90 as of this evening. We saw almost all of them while we were looking for Peanut.
The rats range from the young to the not so young, but they all appeared curious and interested in the humans wandering around … and if we had room … if we had room …
To all of my readers, especially in the Greater Toronto Area, if you have room for one … or two … or three … or more rats in your home please go to the THS on River Street and adopt them. If you do not have room at the moment, please consider a donation … and Thank You.
Gordon left us last night, passing quietly in his sleep.
He was the last of the four boys we had adopted from the Toronto Humane Society. His brothers Jeremy, Nibblett, and Frank having left for the Rainbow Bridge some time before. Gordon was almost three years old, a good old age for a rat.
