Lenin & Marx

These boys came to us on 8/4/19 because their owner was moving and couldn’t bring them along.

Fostered by Phyllis in Hollis, ME.

UPDATE 8/17/19:

“Tomorrow will be two weeks that they have been here. What a change! I put a wheel in their cage and they have decided that it’s pretty fun. They don’t use it a lot, but they do play on it a couple times a day. So I would definitely recommend one of the yellow Wodent Wheels for them.

They now run to the front of the cage to look for attention, instead of hiding when they see us. They are much more apt to check me out during bathroom playtime now. They’re getting better at shoulder rides.

These are some great rats. I am trying very hard not to become overly attached!

Scoop ‘em up! You will be really happy you did!!”

UPDATE 9/5/19:

“Marx is really coming out of his shell. He has become so friendly. Lenin is still a little shy but much better. It used to be when I came near the cage, they would run, especially Lenin. But now they come to the front of the cage looking for attention. When I put their bowl of salad in, they are actually waiting for me on their shelf. They are very easy to pick up, they don’t struggle or run away. Very very sweet and cute. I think they would do very well with another mature rat, either male or female. They are just mellow, easy-going little guys. Well, they are actually big squishy guys. Which is even more adorable.”
