So I just rescued two girls listed on craigslist. They have been in this tiny cage for 2 years! They were recently given to this latest family for their 9yo son. This son lost interest in them, so I that's how they ended up with me.
They seem very sweet and calm. They're checking out their new quarantine cage right now. Bet they've never seen a hammock before.
They are such small adult girls. Did I mention how sweet they are? Joi seems to be the boss among the two. When I rub Koi, she closes her eyes and lays into the rub.
Here is their tiny cage of the last 2 years.

Here they are checking out their new quarantine franken-cage

Here's Joi. I have a post in the health section about her old eye injury.

Here's Koi

Re: New rescued girls - Joi and Koi

aww they are adorable. Can't believe what a small cage they were in, that's not even big enough for a hamster!

Oh they look like total sweeties! I'm so glad you got them, I'm sure they're just loving it! That old cage of theirs is just rediculous.

And I also want to say to Joi- "Oh my, what big eyes you have!"

Good for you! I read your post and was hoping you'd get them, but I didn't want to pressure you, since I have a raging case of GGMR...so I'm glad you did!

They are adorable, and I bet they're thrilled to be in a bigger cage, even if it's just quarantine for now. You always take the best pics, by the way. :)

They're adorable! I saw your other post. I was really hoping that you'd get them. That "hamster cage" isn't even big enough for a hamster! Let alone 2 female rats!

Congrats! :D

Here are some photos from today. They are excellent models. I think the photos speak for themselves on how happy these girls are now.

They seem like they have such character! Like weathered old souls.

They do look much happier, and I bet they love you for that. That last picture is priceless!
