Long story short i had 3 rats. The oldest one (3) passed, seemingly naturally, and only a week later one of my two young rats (6 months or less) passed from what seems like an extremely fast acting respiratory infection (red eyes, heaving, low energy).

Im left with 2 options w/ my last rat (6 months old). Find her a friend or find her a new home w/ another rat owner.

i'm emotionally drained and want a break from rats (and aware that i cant keep her by herself), so I would rather find her a new home.

But on the off chance that these two deaths ARENT coincident and they both were passing around some sort of contagious infection, i dont want to infect and destroy some other rat owners colony.

I'm at a crossroads and could use advice on how to proceed. any advice is appreciated.

I think you should give your rat to a new home who would have the emotional capacity to handle her now, but before you do anything, bring her to a vet to make sure she doesn't have something contagious.
