Our new ratties have arrived!

Tonight we picked up my 2 boys and 2 girls from our rat train driver in Philadelphia. Our Star's Rat Rescue rats traveled 1,500 miles from South Dakota to Philadelphia. Brittney the owner of SRR along with 4 other drivers helped get them here! 

My husband and I were out doing errands waiting for our rat drivers call to say when he would be at the Petco to meet us near our house. We just happened to be at the dollar store in that same shopping center when our driver called to say he had arrived.

We picked up my two boys Aspen & Curry. They both look like tan berkshires. They have small circles of white on their bellies. Curry has a broken toe from an injury he got before he was adopted.

My two girls are Olive & Fern. Fern is black capped and Olive is a hooded agouti.

We also picked up another adopters rats for her, we are meeting her tomorrow evening at a Petco in Philadelphia to drop her two girls off to her and finish the SRR Rat Train.

After we got everyone home, we cleaned out their cages, gave them new baby blankets and food and some yogurt peanuts. In a few days we will try moving the boys in with my two boys and my new girls in with my other girls.

Thank you to all the drivers who helped!!!

  1. awwwww, Sarah they're absoloutely gorgeous!! the boys are a beautiful colour :)

  2. Yay! I was hoping that I'd check back and see this was the case! What an amazing rescue team. It does my heart good to see people so motivated to care for these ratties! I love the names...especially curry. Did you name them, or were they already named? I hope you have great times with them!

  3. Hi Angie, I named them myself. I've worked with Brittney (Owner of SRR). for almost 4 years. We've been moderators on Ratchatter forums. I've been lucky enough to adopt 7 rats from South Dakota. :)
