Hello everyone :3

Post by Moomin on Mon Oct 28, 2013 8:02 am

]Hello everyone! Big Grin 
I just joined the Irish rat club today! I thought I would join because i'm going to be getting four baby,female rats soon!  I've never owned rats before but I've done a lot of research and I just fell in love with their cuteness Laugh  I cant wait to get the little fellows! Anyway i'm really looking forward to learning more about rats as well as tips,stories,pics and just chatting with rat owners Smile

smokierat - Thank you,i'm sure I will! Everyone is so friendly Grin 

Zounds - Thank you,I would love to get to know you to! A lady in ''Maxi Zoo XXL'' in Clonmel told me she got her past rats from you and she told me about this website as well Smile  I'm thinking of getting them from a pet store because they are really healthy looking and the people there are friendly but I would of preferred to get the little fellows from a breeder or  rescue center but I couldn't find any Confused

I would definatly recommend getting them from Laura or a rescue over a petshop,you might have to wait a bit longer but its worth it to know that you're not encouraging petshops.I know its hard to wait,im the least patient person i know Big Grin They might seem healthy from that petshop,but even if they are-its where petshops source them that i wouldnt want to fund/encourage..

I cant find any rescues in my area who have 4 baby,girl rats and is Laura the owner of ''Bongo Furry Rattery''? Smile   Ha ha i'm a very impatient as well,its sure hard to wait but it would be defiantly worth waiting if I could find ones from a rescue or breeder! Where do pet stores get their rats from? Shocked

Yep thats Laura and Karl-you should check out their website Smile oh its really sad,pretty much *all* pet shops source them from a big rodent farm in the UK (no matter what the staff say!sometimes theyl say otherwise because theyve been lied to themselves)Maybe someone could post a link to info?The conditions are just heartbreaking Cry Other than that,its a few back yard breeder types as no reputable breeder would sell to a petshop really.

Would be lovely if you could come down, but you're always welcome for a visit anyway to meet the rats and see how we do things Smile

There's a good article on here on why not to buy from petshops:

Thank you that's so kind Big Grin  Well at the moment we are living in Clonmel but i'm in my last year of school so soon i'll be heading to college and it could be in Cork. So if we move there I would love to visit and maybe I could check out some shows because a lot of people with rats seem to be in cork! Oh thanks for the link i'll check that out Wink
