I got my two boys last year Aug. The main reason was for my daughter. She has a real love for animals (we have this in common), We live in an apartment where no 'pets' are allowed. After much research I decided on rats. I searched long and hard for a breeder. They are scarce in SA. But I found one, and was blessed to find my two boys. I have done everything by the book when it comes to my two boys. Healthy diet, free range, love, a huge clean cage. I'm a single mom, with long working hours. And my daughter lost interest in the boys. I knew this was a possibility, and I knew that they boys were my responsibility no matter what as I chose to bring them into our lives. I've always believed in trying to give the best to my two boys. No matter how tired I am, they get a cooked meal every night, they have their own room to free range and they have a clean cage to live in. But I don't have the time to truly love them. Don't get me wrong, they get kisses from me every morning before leaving for work and every night before my bed time. When I get home, they get let out of their cage for free range whilst I'm cooking and attending to my duties. They have a healthy diet, free range and a clean home, but my point is I feel like they deserve better. I don't have the time to play with them, spend time with them and give them the true love they deserve. I was thinking of rehoming them, for a better life. Someone that can give them more attention. In SA, pet rats are unknown, misunderstood. And in true honesty, I wouldn't trust anyone with my boys. I would worry about them every day. Are they being looked after? Are they being fed correctly? Are they warm? Are they loved? But yet I feel I don't give them the life and attention they deserve! I thought of euthanasia. But that makes me sick to my stomach and beyond..These two precious boys deserve more than just 'being looked after because they didn't choose to be here', if that makes sense. I feel guilty for not being able to give them the attention they need and deserve. Euthanasia or trust a rehoming situation? Any advise is welcome pleas...
