Title: R.I.P. Finn and question
Post by: RattyRodent on January 07, 2019, 08:51:38 PM
We lost Finn today, one of three rats we adopted a few years ago along with Stan and Ollie. Ollie passed away earlier this year. We were shocked to find that Finn had passed away tonight.

Now we have only Stan left. What really saddens me is that, despite being at least two years old, Stan is still very healthy and lively. We really hate the thought of him living alone, but we don't know what to do. Bringing in another rat could be a problem. We'd have to find one near Stan's age and that might be hard. Bringing in baby rats might be too much for him. Suggestions please.

Here's Stan, by the way. (https://i1200.photobucket.com/albums/bb338/martincrum/Stan2.jpg) (https://s1200.photobucket.com/user/martincrum/media/Stan2.jpg.html)

I don't know how this wound up in "Home Squeak Home". Could the moderator move it for me?

So sorry for your loss  :puppy_dog_eyes:.  Play hard at the bridge Finn.
If you're located in New England or New York, Mainely Rat Rescue has a lot of rats of varying ages available for adoption so you might be able to get Stan some friends near his own age.  Or you could get a pair of younger rats that would have each other to play with and while still providing Stan with some companionship.

We live near Dayton, Ohio. Our best bet would be Rattie Tattie Rescue, unless we can find something closer.
