Julia and Jenny

Name/s: Julia and Jenny
Species: Rats
Gender: Female
Date of Birth: Unknown but we estimate they are 18 months – 2 years.
History Jenny and Julia’s owner passed away recently and we were contacted by his daughter for help. The gentleman adored his rats but it appears he struggled towards the end of his life.
Temperament Gorgeous, friendly little girls who are very easy to handle.
Health On arrival Julia had an absolutely massive mammary tumour which our vet was happily able to remove. She will need to remain on medication for life to reduce the risk of it returning. The girls were living on woodshavings and being fed on guinea pig food which may have had some impact.
Ideal home A home with some experience and a good vet on standby in case of future issues.We haven’t tested them with other rats yet but we suspect they would enjoy living as part of a group. We wouldn’t want to home them as a pair given their age. They adore people so we would definitely like a home where they will get LOTS of attention.

Julia and Jenny have now been rehomed along with Coco and Mumu. They will live as part of a large group of older rats.
