Location: Polegate (near Eastbourne) East Sussex
Number of groups: 1

Group: 1
Number of rats: 7
Sex: Female
Age(s): Ruby and Beauty a few months old, doe kittens born 8th February 2010
Name(s): Ruby and Beauty, kittens – no names
Colours: Ruby - agouti self (brown), Beauty – black, female kittens – black, champagne/ silver fawn, agouti
Neutered: No
Reason for rehoming: Part of a larger rescue from another rescue centre. Bred by previous owner and therefore likely to be inbred, as all of the rats are related. They were kept in tiny hamster cage. Ruby and Beauty arrived here pregnant, Ruby gave birth to one kitten, but rejected it, Emma tried to hand rear it but sadly little Faith only survived a couple of days. Beauty gave birth to eleven healthy kittens, 5 does and 6 bucks (the bucks, fingers crossed, have already been reserved). All will be ready to be rehomed end of March/early April.
Medical problems: Given the inbreeding and conditions they were kept in they may have health issues later in life. However currently fit and well.
Will the group be split: Yes (but no lone rats), also please consider Ruby and Beauty, they are only a few months old themselves.
Transport available: Locally
Other: All animals will ideally be re-homed within the local and surrounding areas to allow for home checks. If you are further afield you may still be considered. An animal application and contract form will need to be completed please, as well as a monetary donation. Please see website for further details http://www.rodentrescue.org.uk/rehome.html
