:please2: can anyone help?

I have a rat cage that someone could borrow if they are able to help but don't have anything suitable to keep this little one in (I'm in North Wales, near Cheshire border so I can meet anyone fairly local). I can't have small furries here myself though. :sorry:

Thank you for the kind offer of help :rose:

It looks as though this is sorted for the time being. Someone on the rat forum that this was originally posted has taken this lad. I don't know how temporary the offer is though as I didn't arrange it. So there may still be a requirement for someone to foster him until a permanent home is found. I'll update as soon as I know more.

I have added to the post on FR but also happy to pop it here - If the little lad does end up needing placement (from what she said she wont be able to keep him long term) then I can find a place for him here.

I was just about to update this to say that you're on-board. Although it sounds as though the person looking after him now needs him out asap. So transport down south is the next hurdle.
