Ewwwww what a tough little fellow!!!  Can I ask about the joint abscesses?  I have a nakie girl who was dumped outside with 28 other rats, she has ongoing internal abscesses. I am treating with baytril and metronidazole but wondered what needs worked for your lad?

I adore that pic with him and his normal sized nakie brother. :)

For him Orbax was the miracle drug.  He had them on his knees and elbows, apparently there is a human analogue according to my human physician friend.  Something to do with a failure of a particular enzyme to develop, the enzyme breaks down pus.  The humans with the disease have compromised immune systems and chronic medial joint abscesses like Ebi, and eventually die of resistant bacteria in their teens.  Sad stuff.

Also worth noting - I think he is recessive hairless rather than double rex, because there were no rexes in his litter and both parents looked to have normal coats.  This was from a BYB who had gotten overwhelmed and had a zillion babies that needed homes STAT.

Sure thing, they're on my phone so I can email them to you, I think it's pricey to text pics to Canada.

That shot with the tongue is hilariously adorable.  What a sweetheart!  I'm so glad you were able to pull her through and that she is thriving. :heart:

She's such a beautiful girl, despite the damage.  She is so lucky to have you--and vice versa!

Pele is over a year old now...Photobucket has been a real cow lately and I haven't been able to upload pics until today (you end up in a permanent loop of logins when you hit Upload).  Someone figured out a temporary fix of uploading one by one through Editor...this is for anyone else having issues.

Pele always pushes under the blankets and loves to curl up on my feet, by my legs or on my tummy.  One day it was too warm for blankets so she decided to make do.  Thank the rat gods for oversized sleep pants. 





Any my favorite pic of her sprawled out over my tummy  :heart:

Last night I had to take in 2 orphan wees.  There was originally 5 "rescued" by a collector.  He and his wife already have lots of rats, but wanted to collect one of every color, pattern and coat type, so they rescued  5 babies from the feeder bin.  Baby 1 died by being killed by their adult biter female *duh*, baby 2 died (no clue but suspecting MC) and 3 babies were picked up by my friend on Nov. 29th.  The little notch capped female died during the day at my friends (to her sadness) and from her description it really sounded like MC. :( 

So I get the 2 wees home, a lovely safe blue hoodie girl I named Eirlys ("Ire-liss" which means Snowdrop in welsh) and the high white smaller boy I named Rhys ("Reese" meaning Enthusiasm).

Pele LOVES them!!  So you now get double the please today :)

Don't mind the teeny cage, my foster only had a carrier I had loaned her to keep them in...they don't seem to care.



Checking out the tiny baby box, her head filled the door LOL



Swarmed by happy babies!

Where's Pele's head??



Eirlys and Pele





And the 2 wees together :)
