Last night my friend found a baby rat her cat had dragged into the house and we are trying to save it.
I went on a bunch of websites and walked her through making sure he stayed warm, and what kinda rat formula you can make at home. So anyways she is super busy today so I picked him up just a few hours ago, and I have him in a shoebox with towels and a heating pad underneath the box. He's a tiny little fellow probably just a week or so old andwe named him after our math teacher mr. alu
isnt' he beautiful?
I know he probably has a small chance of survival but we are going to do our best.
I asked 2 local shelters if they could take him but they both don't really deal with rats so until I can find another shelter he is going to be staying in my room it seems. I bought some KMR formula for kittens and fed him some through an eyedropper, it was the cutest thing in the world.
I know I shouldn't get attached but he's adorable
If you have any tips, experience or questions please let me know!
