greetings.
My name is Zoe, and I live in Kirkland, WA.
I currently have no rattlings, but I've been researching like mad and and hoping to get them soon. (NOT from a petstore)

I've been lurking here for a couple of days and have learned some very helpful tips!
I hope to see you guys around more when my ratties come to live with me!

-Zoe

Heh, thanks everyone.
I live in walking distance from Petco. They do keep the boys and girls separate, but the cages(plus they use aquariums) are so small!
not very god living quarters.

PETA made that happen. :] I read about it not long ago. The gender separation, I mean.

Welcome!

Also make sure to check for any rat rescues in your area, or rats who need homes in shelters! Petfinder is your friend ;)

I was in a petstore yesterday that had rats. The stickers on the aquariums said "Mostly Males" and "Mostly Females." There was even a litter of babies in one of the tanks, so sad. :(

that is awful. PetsMart takes the gender separation way far, and i feel that it's a sign that they are doing a little better than PetCo as far as small animals go. seeing as i was set on a hairless rat, i had to go PetsMart because the shelters by my house didn't have any, but i had to drive 20 miles to the next PetsMart since the fort collins PetsMart is a male-only store. pretty neat trip, i'll have to say.

I loathe Petco. With a passion.

I went to get Ed a cagemate, and there was a dead and trampled little ratty in the corner....I stormed out of the store crying and yelling about how horrible they are. My heart hurt so bad when I had to walk away from all of those cute little fuzzies living with a dead brother. -sniffle- :(

My mother did that for me, there was no way I could calmly tell them of what I saw. xD

I'm hoping they will actually do something. :(
