I guess we are rescuing them, from a family who recently got what they thought were two males. I am new to typing rats. I don't know what type of fur they have. Mama is hooded grey. I am not sure, but dad might have dumbo ears. When I saw the kits it looked like one or two of them might have spots over their eyes. (masked??) They were still all skin so it was hard to tell, it might have been their eyes under the skin, but it was only on a couple of them. They were born on 10/1. Are they ready to leave mama as soon as they wean?
Thanks for the friendly welcome(s)!
aw, the babies are so cute!
mommy rat and daddy rat are pretty gorgeous too. :wink:
rats can go to their new homes at 5 weeks, and any earlier than that is not recommended.
so i guess you still have a few weeks wait ahead of you!
