It's been awhile, and still no rattie friends. I miss having rats around, but our three cats still keep us entertained, even though they're getting up there in years.
I have been unable to find any rats in the area, either...It seems that nobody in Indiana or even nearing states is sellings rats anymore, or rehoming them, or anything!
I even checked at a couple of pet stores, and they said they don't carry rats anymore, not citing any reason.
Guess I'll just be ratless unless I get lucky.
