Hey everyone! I'm looking for people near me who have rats. I know there's gotta be at least a few of you! I live near Oneonta, about 1.5 hrs from Albany, maybe 2.5 from Ithaca. I really love my rattie (yes just one at the moment, but i promise he's happy and healthy as a single rat for now!) and wish I could connect with other rat lovers. Dog and cat people have it so easy, but us rat lovers are rare! Also, I'd love to be able to switch off caring for each others rats for vacations or short trips. My neighbor comes by to check on my pets when I'm away but she has done a few things in terms of rat care that make me nervous to trust her if I'm away for more than a day or two. I hope someone out there lives near me!
