There are only 2 active breeders in my area and 1 I'm not eligible for due to my cage being a ferret cage.. I offered to put hardware cloth on it but they just completely shot me down saying it's a health hazard due to hairs and urine getting in the small spaces even though I could easily clean it. The second breeder I was looking into just emailed me their adoption contract and it also says "No ferret cage" they use the first breeder as a mentor so I don't even think I'll ask them because I know I will be shot down too. I honestly just don't know what to do, the rats at petco just don't look healthy and there are no petsmarts near me that have male rats. I just don't know what I am suppose to do now. I don't want to keep Jojo alone and Blaze will just try to kill him if I even try introductions with them. I don't have the money for a brand new cage considering this one is less than half a year old. I know no one with accidental litters in my area and I can never find anything on craigslist then I don't trust the people on craigslist and I just I have no clue what to do at this point.
