    Hello

    My name is Draven and I am wondering if any one is interested in re-homing some or all of these beautiful babie 7 week old dumbo blue does. I am not charging for them, this is not a profit making re-homing at all. My friend could not re-home them, and was going to give them to a woodside or animal rescue centre, I did not want that to happen so took them home with me, until I can find suitable home. I would keep them, but have 6 big dumbo boys myself and as I can not keep them together, it is not realistic. If they were male on the other hand I would not be writing this, as I would keep them for myself. They are very shy and very tame and I adore them. To be honest I am getting abit worried about them, as they need a good home with plenty of attentiona and time. As I have to keep them separate from my boys in a different room it is proving difficult to give 11 rats the attention and love they need and as my boys are my main priorty, as I hoose to have them, keeping these little darlings are not an option. I am very sad about it and it breaks my heart. So please if anyone can help and give them or some of them a loving home, then I will be very happy. The girls can go in pairs and a three or all seven if they are very lucky, although I know that is a tall order. They are very fond of each other, being sisters and are very close. I live in Callington Cornwall, about 15-20 miles from Plymouth. These rats are not snake food, only serious rat lovers apply. So if you can help please give these babies a chance of a loving life, with lots of cuddles and love. I look forward to hearing from you soon, maybe.

    such a shame you live so far away from me otherwise I would have had at least 4 of them from you, I have 4 males at the moment but have a spare huge rat cage and would have loved to have had them. Good luck finding them loving pet homes :)

    Hello

    Where are you out of interest!! I have just re-homed two of the little monkeys, and I am so pleased. A lady in Sidmouth, Devon is having two on Sunday, so I am driving up as she hasn't a car. I feel as I have taken them in, I should go that extra mile to home them, it is difficult, but not there fault. Thanks for responding and let me know where you live!!

    Do you have any pics of them? I am interested in one or 2. If Vixie is still interested, I can probably abuse my train pass as I go to Bristol fairly often which i believe is near wales? Maybe?

    Peace

    Hello Girls

    Now listen carefully, LOL. Here is the deal. I have 4 left, 3 of the little sweethearts have homes and are going tomorrow to a lovely lady in Sidmouth, so we are chuffed about that. There are 4 left, so I am happy, for the girls sake to travel to Bristol, from Callington, to dliver them to Akai-Chan and then maybe Vixie could make arrangements from there with Akai-Chan. The only issue or problem I would have is knowing 150% that travelling to Bristol which is about 2 and a half hours, that you guys are serious about having them at the other end. Please do not be offended by me saying that, I don't know you and I hope I am not coming across as being nasty, but I would hate to drive all that way and you do not want them????? It would stress the girls out too much.

    I am willing to do this for the little ones as they need a good stable loving home. Please get back to me if this offer is what you want. And thanks for the replys about the girls.

    No you dont sound nasty at all Marina just concerned about the girls and I would expect nothing less :)

    I can assure you I would not offer a home to any pet without lots of thought and knowing I could care for them and give them a permanent loving home :)

    Hello

    Thanks for that. So if Akai-Chan gets in contact and is happy with my suggestion, would you be happy to have two of them? I know Bristol is along way from here, but if the girls get love, I can sleep well again? Just out of interest where in south wales exactly are you, location wise?

    I don't actually live in Bristol I live in Brighton but find myself in Bristol quite a lot :p It would be a long days travel though. Are there any hostels where you live Vixie in case I need to stay overnight? I would be happy to do this to be honest if i'm up there anyway :)

    Peace

    Hello Girls

    I know Vixie!!!! let me know where you live in South Wales, because It might just be easier to bring them to you and then Akai-Chan can come to you or something?????? Thanks girls. I will send some pictures of the girls soon.

    My Mobile number 07894138398, this might easier.

    Yes! pics are a must :D I won't be able to take any now as I have rescues coming in tomorrow apparently >_< But Vixie said she'd take all 4 :)

    Mobile is no use to me as I'm out of credit and I'm not even sure where my phone is actually...

    Peace
