These girlies came to us from a large hoarding case where over 80 rats were being kept in poor conditions in one household.

Paris & Niccy were displaying symptoms of respiratory infection on arrival and were treated with two courses of antibiotics – their chests are now clear but they continue to be mildly sneezy due to suspected scarring of their upper airways caused by previous untreated infection. They have been reviewed by an exotics vet and do not require any further treatment, but may of course be prone to future flare ups of respiratory infections (like many rats!). The other rats in the group did receive an initial course of antibiotics but have not displayed the same excessive sneeziness, although given that they all came from the same poor conditions, they may also be prone to future respiratory issues.

Sally, Sophia and Becki are friendly but prefer not to be handled too much, Suzi is fairly confident but can be a littly nippy while in the cage, Niccy and Paris are friendly but a little nervous, and Jo is the most timid of the group. These girls would be best with an experienced ratty carer.

The girls can be adopted in pairs minimum if joining an adopter’s existing rat(s), or in trios minimum if not joining more rats.
