Rat Tails & Mug Shots / Re: Easy Peasy Daily Votes Needed through November 19!
« Last post by ratluver372 on November 22, 2018, 03:02:36 PM »
I usually forget to let people know about outcomes of things (sorry!), but I do want everyone to know that their daily votes for me in the Small Pet Select contest paid off- I was one of the top 3 individuals, so $3500 will be donated by them for me. I actually will be able to donate to the 15 US 501(c)(3) rescues that take in rats that have registered with The Travelin' Rat in 2018! This means that they will each get $233 because of all of you! PLUS, Critter Camp was one of the winners in the Organization category, so they also get $3500 on top of that!
Any Rat Rescue
Best Friend Rodent Rescue
Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary
Flower City Critters Small Animal Rescue
For The Love Of Rats Rescue
Mainely Rat Rescue
MN Pocket Pet Rescue
Our Little Rat Rescue, Inc. - Oklahoma
Philly Rat Rescue
Ratical Rodent Rescue (formerly North Star Rescue)
Rattie Ratz
Saint Nicholas Mouse Rescue
Small Angels Rescue
Star's Rat Rescue
Tiny Toes Rat Rescue of New Mexico


I had several people let me know that they were voting for me daily, and I appreciated that so much. This contest did not allow you to see the number of votes, so I had no idea of my chances. I am THRILLED! Thank you all!

Rat Tails & Mug Shots / Rescues and Rescue Supporters! Contest to help a charity!
« Last post by ratluver372 on November 20, 2018, 12:28:09 PM »
via GivingTuesday

As a past #MyGivingStory voter, we encourage you to share your own story for the chance to win up to $10,000 for your favorite cause.
#MyGivingStory is an annual campaign and social media storytelling contest held in November in conjunction with #GivingTuesday that fosters a public conversation about generosity and encourages more people to give. Submit your story before November 30th, then share on social media to get votes! The winning storytellers receive a grant of up to $10,000 that goes to a cause that's close to their heart. Additional prizes and daily sweepstakes offer more chances to win.

#MyGivingStory champions the people who giveónot just money, but time and resources. Everything we do for others creates a ripple. By sharing your giving story, you can provide encouragement for others, spreading that ripple effect and increasing giving. Here are a few prompts to help you get started on your submission:

Who's the most generous person you know?
What inspires you to give back to your community?
Was there a moment when someone else's giving impacted your own life?
Remember that your story does not have to be about a specific organization, nor does it have to involve money. We want to hear what motivates you to giveóand we want to spread your message to inspire others.

- The #GivingTuesday Team

Every act of giving has a story. Whatís yours?

Gifts should be VALUED (can be handmade) at approximately $25USD, before shipping.

Rattie Secret Santa time!
If you'd like to participate in The Travelin' Rat's 2018 Rattie Secret Santa (exchange rat-related gifts for humans and/or rats!), please email TheTravelinRat(at)gmail(dot)com *by Wednesday, November 21, 2018* with:
-your name
-complete address (including zip code!)
-where you are willing to ship to (US only, another country only, US and Canada, worldwide)
-if you would be willing to send a second gift if needed
-about your rats: how many, gender, anything they may be hankering for
We will try to match people within their own countries, but that may not always be possible.
PLEASE do not join if you will not follow through with sending a gift. That is not fair to the other participants. PLEASE also stick to the schedule (that you will be emailed) so people do not get late gifts.
Thank you! Have fun!

During this holiday season, we'd like to encourage you to consider supporting those businesses that have helped The Travelin' Rat and the rescues that we support. Many of them are small businesses.

Please check out our hashtags on social media. Posts will be made on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TheTravelinRat) highlighting different businesses daily during the holiday season.

Rat Care Corner / Re: Labored breathing sounds
« Last post by RattyRodent on November 08, 2018, 08:59:45 PM »
I'm sorry your boy isn't feeling well. 
I must confess I was surprised when your post said the diagnosis was asthma!
Usually when my rats have had some noisy breathing, it's been diagnosed as a respiratory infection and a few weeks of antibiotics clears it up.  But I did have one boy who would have much noisier breathing episodes which would include his sides/ribs heaving when it happened, and that turned out to be an enlarged heart.
I hope things turn out well for your Finn :)

Well, he acts healthy anyway. I'm not sure what the problem is but he seems to be dealing with it. His cage-mate Stan keeps him good company.
