    Not been down here for a while!

    Okay, first off, Ratties. As many of you know I was having a LOT of trouble with little Rumba, rat from hell who was very aggressive. Well, as some of you know, Moth passed away a few months back, and since then Rumba has been fine! I don't know why, as Moth never seemed to cause problems!? Either way I have 6 happy ratty roos :)

    Now...I think I may have a little Hamster dumped on me! His name is Yogi, I have no other details yet haha! He belongs to a friend of a friend. Unfourtunately, I am not looking for a new pet, I have plenty as it is, so if i take him, he can't stay.

    Would anyone be in a position to take him on? Obviously I will let you know details as they come in but I really can't keep him. I can foster him for a few weeks - 2 months max?

    Hi Niki,

    That's great! I think he will come with a home but...

    "She has only had him a few weeks and doesn't like him"

    so god knows what cage it will be :rolleyes:

    Like I say, I can foster him until you are ready for him! Will find out more and let you know :)

    God knows what temprement he has...doubt he has been handled much but he looks very sweet!

    Not sure what age, but the owner has only had him a few weeks so I think:

    A) He was bought for a kid and changed their mind
    B) They haven't bothered with handling and now don't want him
    C) They just got bored

    He's like a lickle chocolate bar!

    Whereabouts are you? xx

    Would you be able to pick him up? I can meet you in Derby at the train station, bus station, or you are welcome to come to mine for a cuppa and a chat after your journey!

    Oh god! 2 hours!? Are you sure that's okay? :blink:

    That's fine, I can keep him over Easter.
    Maybe at the end of the easter hols would be a good time? I am at college tues-fri, so we can sort out either a sat, sun or monday. :)

    Ahh I'm so glad he is going to a good home

    I've got some bad news...spoke to my friend today, who said her friend (Yogi's owner) has changed her mind as her son got upset. She was getting rid as he was making a mess... :mad:

    I am so so sorry, but shall I let you know if she changes it back again?
