URGENT I have 3 girls and one boy rat that need temp or permanent homes… must me experiences rat owner, they are feral so there will be work that you need to do to socialize them but it can be fixed…i rescued these rats but my living situation does not allow me to keep them with me (at least not until i can move)
i am willing to travel a little ways if you are in the NY, CT area
these rats are like my children so i will be conducting an interview with those who email me about taking them
From a Daily Show clip where they attempted to find out which state was the most aggressively anti-gay between Alabama and Mississippi. They paid a couple of actors to pretend to be a gay couple, dressed them up in typical redneck clothes, and put them in a few scenarios where they would put their “homosexual relationship” on display for the general public.
As it turned out, the general public doesn’t give a shit, and some members are actually incredibly supportive, despite the representing politicans from those states being absolutely sure gay people would never be accepted in their states, comparing them to other groups like “coloreds” that only recently became accepted.
Thanks, I guess. I know you’re not trying to be rude, but it’s kinda obnoxious to give unsolicited advice without knowing the full situation. I realize rats are better in numbers, I think most rat owners know this, but Bijou has not socialized successfully with any other rats. We’ve tried, and she is always violent immediately, no matter how long they’ve had to become used to each other. It was really bizarre to see and really disappointing, to say the least. I felt like a shitty rat mom for not being able to help her make friends. But even though I was being very cautious about the process, she would always turn violent without any warning. Rather than have to re-home another rat (which we had to do once, we were very lucky to find a rat lover to take the baby), we’ve decided to spoil Bijou with love and give her as much attention as we can. She’s territorial and aggressive towards anything that’s not human. Maybe she thinks she’s a person? Rats have varied personalities just like other social pets and even though they tend to follow the same behavioral rules within the species, every once and a while there is a weirdo. I think we have a weirdo. And I really didn’t ask you.
Why berate someone who was merely concerned about rats and discourage them from speaking up again? You could simply explain the situation and thank her for her concern.
Hey anonymous, good looking out, don’t ever stop trying to help animals.
Some rats (especially boys) dont like to live with other rats…my boy Heicte is a loner rat…we put him with another boy Yuri…Heicte beat the shit out of Yuri for going NEAR his igloo…Yuri hadnt even touched it…girls generally need companions but boys are a little different sometimes
