These boys came to us on 9/23/18 from a hoard in the Catskills of about 200 rats.
Fostered by Anna in Canton, ME.

“Sleepy and Weepy are the sweetest little bonded brothers. They look almost identical-the only difference is the length of the pink tips of their tails. (Weepy has a shorter pink tip and a tiny tiny patch of white on his face and sleepy has a longer pink tip).
They are a little nervous around loud sounds and are still getting used to being picked up but don’t run away or bite at all! They seem to enjoy being pet. They are curious little guys and delicately take food and snacks when offered to them. They love snuggling up together in their blankets. They will certainly be wonderful pets.”
“After getting to know these two I’ve noticed they have very different personalities! I can completely tell them apart now just but how they act.
Weepy has really come out of his shell and loves roaming the cage and checking for snacks. He’ll come right up to you in his cage to see what you have to offer him! I have started trying to handle him more now that they’ve adjusted to their new home.
Sleepy prefers to stay snuggled in the blankets but enjoys being pet. He still doesn’t quite understand what to do with the snacks I offer him (fruits, veggies, nuts). He is now cautiously testing foods out (if weepy doesn’t snatch it from him first!) but mostly prefers to eat his rat food.”
