The Life of a Bug Nerd

New friends!

Two days ago, I was given three lovely lady rats, two who I’m pretty sure are from the same litter as Remy and Gus were and a senior rat who is over 2 years old.
Their previous owner had to move and couldn’t take them with her, so she left them at the pet shop that I go to frequently. I walked in to get some food for Socrates, Atlas and Spartacus and the lady who owns the shop said that there were three lovely rats that needed a loving home and that she thought they would be perfect for me. She brought out an aquarium and there they were. The two youngest look just like my sweet boys did, and after asking I found out that their ages match, so they might be siblings! The oldest is a Pink-Eyed white and is a sweet old lady who boggled the entire way home. I brought them home and gave them Remy and Gus’s old cage. They’re settling in nicely now.
