You might want to ask about the 'cage' as it looks like they are keeping her in a storage tub, but you're getting a Critter Nation, right?
Asked the owner! She freezes when she sees hands but doesn’t bite. I suspect she might have URI! It’s not a problem! I’ve saved a vet find, and I know how to bond with her!it looks like the Craigslist ad is keeping her in bad conditions, she's probably not very socialized and has bad health since she was supposed to be a feeder.
I know… I have had 3 feeder girls before, this one seems a bit more timid, so this will be fun! Fingers crossed about URI!I know you want to tame a skittish rat, and that can be both a challenge and rewarding. Be careful with a feeder though, if they start with the URI when young, it can be a lifelong problem with meds and vet visits.
