    Due to a pet shop mistake I find myself with two litters, one of 10 and the other of 13 and they now need new loving homes. They are at the moment 3 week old but will be ready to be passed on in 3 weeks. They are all healthy and sociable kittens, ranging from buff roans to hooded buff and black.

    They are to be re-homed in same sex groups of 2 minimum and not to be bred as their background is unknown.

    The possible fathers are buff and a siamese red-eyed and the mothers are a black hooded and a chocolate. They are all really social and cuddly but obviously females rats are mischievous and love to run around and jump/dive off. whereas in general boys are less active and more for a long cuddle.

    If you are interested, would like more details, reply to this thread or PM me.

    Maybe local rescues would be able to help? I know that there are some rat specific rescues, but general ones may be able to help too?

    Good luck finding them homes :)

    Updates on the babies; there are 9 girls left, 4 black hooded, 5 buff hooded (some are possibly Siamese hooded). They are 37/38 days old and are healthy and social, they do not bite and are currently being litter trained.

    I am really struggling financially due to this unexpected adventure but it has been a wonderful experience none the less, I don't regret for a second not handing them back to the pet shop to have them put into tiny glass tanks. I am quite desperate to find loving caring homes for those darlings so don't hesitate to contact me for any information and let people know about those girls. They need homes.
