@  ronelrat : (08 July 2018 - 10:02 AM)

There are people wanting to join the forum who says they received a message asking for a security code?

@  Caryn : (07 July 2018 - 05:49 PM)

Two of my girls over the years have had strokes. Both were still alive when I found them but suffering side effects ie: paralysis, loss of cognitive function. Sadly there is not much that can be done if they are very far gone, smaller strokes can be treated and rats can recover. Seizures are horrible. Mavdb had a couple of boys with issues, you may be able to find posts here on the forum.

@  lollyh : (07 July 2018 - 01:56 PM)

Thank you caryn.im so heartsore.i went out for dinner last night & he was fine,came back home 1 hour later & found him at the bottom of the cage like he was didnt know where he was . :puppy_dog_eyes: .do you have any knowledge on seizures or strokes?

@  Caryn : (07 July 2018 - 12:23 PM)

So very sorry :ratsad:

@  lollyh : (07 July 2018 - 05:11 AM)

Lost my moo lastnight. :ratsad: I'm still in shock.

@  lollyh : (29 June 2018 - 12:04 AM)

Thank you caryn sway. *hugs* *hugs*

@  Caryn : (27 June 2018 - 08:53 AM)

You're not mad at all for wanting to help her :ratsad:

@  lollyh : (25 June 2018 - 04:33 PM)

Thank you caryn.yes i know you would.:-).i love her so much.i dont care about the cost.really i dont.even though everyone around me says im mad & just put her down. :bigeyecry: .no unfortunately i don't have an edgars account.

@  Caryn : (25 June 2018 - 11:43 AM)

Sorry you're going through that with your girl. You know I'd opt for the surgery, Dr O says he can do it and I trust him completely. I realise cost is an issue though. Do you have an Edgars acct you can pay with or can you sign a debit order with them? That's what I usually do for larger surgery costs.

@  lollyh : (25 June 2018 - 09:34 AM)

i have such a hard decision to make. :bigeyerat:

Looking for 2 rescue girls

Hi all.

 

My Charlie passed away this weekend at a really good age :( .  He was a rescue rat who hated other rats so I had to keep him by himself.  I would love to buy two girls from a breeder but finances won't allow that at present so am looking for 2 rescue girls.  I have a big 3 tier cage which is suitable for 2 girls and they will be on my shoulders or running around when ever I am at home.  We have cats and dogs who are all used to rats running all over them and are very protective towards them.  Please contact me if you know of 2 girls who are in need of a loving home.  I would love to adopt 2 young girls as all my adopted rats have tended to be older and really miss raising them from young.

Thanks Tails - am most certainly on the list.  It is so weird not having a rat on my shoulder or to cuddle, feel as if something is missing.

I don't know what I would do with myself if I didn't have rats any more. Your best bet is to get rescues from Tails. We don't have other rescue rats available on the Mischief side. Plus Tails has babies and you said you wanted youngsters :P But wouldn't you rather get 3 rats so that if one dies unexpectedly the other one is not left alone?

If you saw how many times the rescue and the breeders are messaged by someone urgently needing a rat NOW to keep theirs company, you would see why we advocate a trio so much. It's not that we are trying to home more babies but that it happens so often, and half the time we don't have any available rats so they are left waiting weeks for a companion.

I would happily take 3 but their cage is only big enough for 2 girls.  The cage I have is the Lady Rat Cage (Dimensions: 60cm x 35.5 x 58.5 cm).  I had a large mansion which I had made but it would not fit into our very tiny house.  What is your opinion - is this do-able for 3 girls or not?  I just don't have the money or space for a larger cage as also recently rescued a rabbit and had to get him a mansion and am still looking for a neutered mate for him as well.  My husband wants to know what I am going to bring home next :cry:

Oh no Tails - I am starting to suffer from withdrawal symptoms.  My rats are my "happy place".  If I am upset, sad, down, miserable, angry - I go to my rats ....... then my family know that I will soon be a happier person.   Hope I am high on your list for at least 2 little girls :crossfingers:
