Update Jan. 28, 2021. Unfortunately, Cora had to be euthanized at the emergency vet early Thursday morning due to respiratory related complications. Cora had been battling chronic respiratory infections for well over a year. RIP little one.
Cora and Rowena are actually related. Cora was born Oct. 31, 2018, while Rowena was likely born 6 months earlier and was in fact Cora’s grandmother. Both girls were taken from a backyard breeder who was primarily breeding snake food.
After spending almost 2 years with the Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue with no applicants interested in adopting them, both Cora and Rowena are now seniors. Cora has a chronic respiratory infection which requires about $30/month for medication. Rowena has had 2 mammary tumors removed, which cost about $550.
Both these girls are now very much settled into their foster home, and likely will never be adopted.
If you would like to help support the Rescue and our on-going care for these two beautiful girls, please do not hesitate to contact us, or you can make visit our Donate Page.
