I was planning on getting two female babies at the end of the month with my boyfriend to be our first pair of rats together, Im getting them young to be trained and I want the experience, I mentioned this to my mother and she is now begging us to take her 3 rats, Squeak is almost 4 had surgery to remove tumors the other two have really bad tumors and they are all nearing the end of their lives. I feel really terrible for not wanting to take them, I havent even asked my boyfriend yet and I was really excited about new babies. Squeak and the other 2 are social but not trained in any way and dont get out of the cage a lot. I was getting babies to help with my mental health to hopefully get one that would sit with me and want to be around me but these 3 are not really trained for that. Im incredibly torn.
