Ok, for those of you who don't like rats. Now would be a good time to stop reading. Anyways, I've started doing a very small scale rat rescue. Last night I ended up taking in a chinchilla to foster for the summer while the owner is in mexico. LOL. It has a noisy wheel and I was determined to find something quieter for it. So I go into the pet store nd there's a mama rat with her 2 day old babies which somebody has turned in. So, I can't resist and I can't just leave them there, so I brought mama and her babies home. So we now have 6 rats of our own., one more coming on monday as our own pets, and now a mama and her 5 babies which i'll be finding homes for in 5-6 weeks. I'm so excited and they're so cute!!! You can visit our family website at <a href="http://www.stanfordfam.com" target="_blank">www.stanfordfam.com</a> there's a link to RattieTatTats which is our rattie page and you can look through there to see there pictures. Hopefully I'll be able to tell the sex when I take a closer look tonight or tomorrow. Just had to share mye excitement!
