So, one of my new ratties is starting to show a bit of a belly. Not sure if it's a baby-belly yet, or not. When I got her I was prepared and equipped to handle a litter.
Well, last night while on my meds, I must have left the cage door open that holds 5 of my girl rats... :doh:
I found one of them in with 7 of my boys ( :BangHead:), and the other 4 were in their cage. I'm *HOPING* that the other 4 didn't get out, and i'm *HOPING* that the one that did get out, isn't pregnant (i'm hoping for a miracle, basically... :-\).
Anyways. The one that got out, Destinee, is a b/w hooded, and the boys that she was with were b/w hoodeds.
I can handle 1 litter, but I can't handle 2, and there are no vets in my area who do e-spays.
So, IF both Bella and Destinee are pregnant, would someone be willing to foster Destinee and help adopt out her babies?? If not, is anyone interested in adopting any babies, being that I am fairly certain that at least one will be pregnant....Bella is I think a mismarked siamese, and I think she mated with an agouti berkshire...
If I have b/w hooded babies, I'm going to try and rehome them first, being that they are harder to rehome and as  a result I have 19 b/w hooded rats...
ANY help would be appreciated!!!!!!

If I had more rattie experience I'd say yes! I'm in N. Il too.....:(
But I've only had my 2 for 8 weeks, and I'm getting 3 more in just over a week. I don't know if I could handle a litter!

I wound up only having 1 litter of 8 babies (well, 9, but we lost a little boy within a day  :-\)! And I'm either keeping them all, or rehoming just 2 girls (which already have a home lined up if I do decide not to keep them). Thank you though!!
Oh, and NONE were black and white hoodies!!
