We adopted a female hairless rat, Nana, to be a companion to our other hairless, Peaches. At first I thought about why such a ginormous rat would be available in our local pet store, as I do not see hairless ones that often there. After having her for a few weeks, her belly started swelling and now she looks like she's about to pop. I have an appointment this thursday at the vet for Peaches, but I think I am going to bring Nana too and let my vet tell me if he hears heartbeats. I have a tank set up for her and am putting her in there just in case she gives birth before the appointment. My problem is, I do not know what to do with the babies. I really hate giving them back to my pet store, as I really don't like my pet store. Does anyone know who may be looking for a baby rat on Long Island? I have NO IDEA what is going to come out of this rat, as I don't know what kind of rat she was with to begin with, so I will have no history for you.
