Prepare the fatted grains! It looks like two of our foster babies from Net-Net’s litter are coming back to us.

Laura and Trixie were adopted by a woman in Massachusetts, but it turned out her younger sister is allergic to rats. They moved the girls to the boyfriend’s apartment – where not only is he not allowed to keep pets, but he turned out to be allergic, too.

Luckily, they got in touch with Mainely Rat Rescue about surrendering the girls back to the source. MRR, knowing we have a history with the girls and that they’re not a socialization problem, asked if we’d take them back to foster.

We immediately said yes. Arrangements are being made, and we’ll probably pick them up tonight.

I’m sad for the folks who adopted them – it’s always an unhappy thing to try to bring animals into your life, only to learn that they make you sick. On the other hand, I’m pleased to see two of “our girls” come home for Christmas.

Updates and pictures to come when I have them!

oh noes! At least they are being fostered again and not just released into the wild. So many people think housepets can fend for themselves. It’s sad.
