Sweet Jacob has come a very long way and anyone who meets him now would never guess that he used to be a terrified, aggressive rescue from a hoarder. Estimated to be just over 1 year old, Jacob has been neutered, properly socialized and now just wants a home with 2 or more female rats and a human lap to call home.
Although it will take a week or more for Jacob to warm up to you, once he does, he is the perfect cuddle-buddy and fellow couch-potato. He loves to just lay on your stomach or on your thigh while you do your thing. He closes his eyes and leans in to get gentle head rubs once in a while, and is SO polite that if he needs to relieve himself, he’ll actually have the courtesy to hop off!
Jacob needs a calm home with a consistent schedule and no rough handling at all. He still spooks easily and can very quickly become that terrified quivering rat. The good news is, it is now quite easy to coax him back into calmness.
Jacob is a very special boy who is looking for that perfect human guardian. He would absolutely love to live with girl rats who will pamper him and help boost his confidence with their outgoing nature.
We absolutely WILL NOT adopt him out as a single rat, so please only apply if you have female rats already at home, or are willing to adopt 2 female rats from us.
Jacob’s adoption fee is $100 to help cover his veterinary costs. Please contact us for more information.
