Hi everyone :)

Post by cherokeerose on Mon Nov 11, 2013 10:23 am

Hi!

Newbie here, thought I'd introduce myself Smile
I'm Cecilia, 25 years old and I've wanted to get a pet rat for the past five years or so but I've not been able to find a breeder anywhere and I refuse to buy from a pet shop because the rats I've seen there have always looked miserable.

I've never owned a rat before, but I've had lots of other animals (guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters, dogs, cats, goats...) so I know that I'm definitely a responsible owner. Smile I had a bit of a browse around the forum but I couldn't seem to find any breeders in Donegal (I live out in the sticks about an hour from Letterkenny) - so I was just wondering if anyone knows a good breeder around my area or perhaps in the North?

Look forward to hearing from you all!

Kind regards,
Cecilia

Hi Cecilia,

Welcome to our little corner of the internet! Smile We are the only NFRS registered breeders in Ireland at the moment - and we are about as far away from you as it's possible to be - however, we do have family in Donegal and do travel up on occasion. It would probably mean a pretty lengthy wait for babies from us, but if you're prepared to wait, it is do-able. If you want to drop me an e-mail at any point, feel free, and my website is in my profile/signature Smile

Glad to have you on the forum! Grin

xx

Thanks for the replies!

Yeah, I meant rats ^^ I know they like company so I'd never deprive them of something like that Smile
