Here is the long awaited pictures of the loner rattie I adopted! She came from a home where pretty much all they did was givew her shitty lab blocks and pine bedding and didn't change her cage for weeks. Poor baby.. she is well loved now though!
I adopted a rat off of Freecycle a while back that was in the same situation. I posted looking for a cage and a woman offered me her nice three story cage if I took the rat in it. I agreed and the woman said she would meet me in Plano to give me the rat and her 'stuff'.
The rat's 'stuff' turned out to be half chewed up bowl, a dirty piece of newspaper for bedding and no water bottle. Ugh.
