Special need: Chip’s vet has determined that he has a chronic respiratory condition and will require antibiotics for life.
“Chip: prefers to just hang out in his pod or casually check things out on his own time during free roam. He’ll come to you for certain treats, fruits and seeds are high on his list, but isn’t treat motivated. He is a sweet rat though, very gentle. Ivy and Pepper often use him as a pillow to sleep on.
Ivy: is an explorer! She LOVES her free roam time and wants to be out 24/7. Careful about keeping the cage door open with this one unless your whole room is a safe area. She is very sweet but can get cranky if you reach in her pod while they’re sleeping.
Pepper: She LOVES food. Even the food she doesn’t like-she’ll steal from Ivy and Chip. She’s a little troublemaker. She is a very outgoing, energetic rat who is incredibly food motivated. She’s highly trainable using peas, and even comes to her name. She could easily learn new tricks! She isn’t a snuggler though -she’d rather run around on you instead.”
