Looking for a hairless boy or 2 in Northern IL!
« on: September 14, 2008, 04:54:43 PM »
Hi, So someone contacted me, saying that she is allergic to rats' fur, and as a result, she has..1 rat. A hairless boy. And she said that if she couldn't find him another friend, she would have no choice, knowing that rats need a buddy, to put him up for adoption.
So I was wondering if anyone knew of any hairless boys available anywhere? I'd like to help her out as much as I can.
Thanks!

Has she tried Petfinder? If there are rescues not exactly close to her, she could always inquire about transport. :)

Rat A Tat Tat Rattery is in central Illinois.  I'm not sure how far a drive that is, but their site says they have hairless.  It might be worth finding out.

Why not a furry friend that will keep him warm?  Nakies don't have to be paired with nakies :)

She's allergic to their fur, otherwise she would get him a furry friend!   ;)

I live in N Illinois, so if I hear of one, or see of anything in the paper, I'll post back! I know Pet Stores are a no no, but the place I got my girls had a male hairless.....

They do have hairless, pretty often it seems, so I would check her out.

Here's her website:
