I went to the pharmacy today to pick up some meds, and popped into the pet shop next door. I asked the man at the shop where the rats were, and he showed me, and said "We've got five females and one male left. The male hasn't sold in a week so it's snake food for him".

I couldn't leave him there, I just couldn't. They had him on pine shavings and his eyes were all crusty. Poor baby.

Just yesterday I was saying how I wanted to help a rat in poor conditions, so I thought maybe it's fate.

Anyway, no name yet, but here he is:

Update:

Decided to name him Winston, like the character from 1984 who is afraid of Rats. It's probably over-done ;) but I like it and I think it suits him fairly well!

Love the name! And good for you, rescuing him from the snakes! All mine were destined to be snakefood as well.

Just thought I'd show you a video of little Winston in his QT cage, this was the first I saw of his (now EPIC) love of hand wrestling.

He's a player, unlike my other boys who are more laid back and up for a cuddle. I LOVE IT!
