Sweet, scared brothers Noel & Skippy were originally transferred to the Rat Rescue from the Toronto SPCA where they were at risk of being euthanized. Having been at the SPCA for months, many visitors had gotten bitten or nipped very hard by these two brothers (we now suspect it was mostly Skippy!) which immediately made them almost impossible to adopt out.
After being with their foster mom for the last 2.5 months, they have made lots of progress. No longer as scared, they are now also much less nippy.
These two boys were about to go up for adoption, and almost immediately one of our most experienced rat-parents and repeat adopters expressed interest in giving them a forever home. Yay!
