Misty and Melon learn about Woody’s tail

Melon, did you hear what happened to our friend Woody?

It’s been all over OC Dumbos’s Instagram account!

OMG, no! Misty, what happened?

Her tail got injured, and she had to have surgery to repair it!

Oh no, her poor tail! That’s so sad…

A rat’s tail is very important. Woody, what happened?

It happened at the vet’s office. The nurse was holding me, and I got scared and tried to escape, so my tail..the skin…oh, it’s really hard to talk about it.

Woody, I’m so sorry that happened to you. It could happen to any of us. The vet can be a scary place!

Look at Melon and my beautiful, perfect little babies. I am thankful for our good fortune even more, now.

Misty, we should all be thankful for our good fortune. And don’t worry: Woody may be missing part of her tail, but she’s brave and strong and she’ll be OK. But I guess we will start looking for another vet…

Misty and Melon’s litter was born on August 17th.  They will be ready to be adopted by people who have reservations on or after September 21th, 2019.  The moment we know what litter you will be assigned to, whether this or any future litter, you will immediately be sent an invitation to come pick out your babies. If we haven’t sent you an invitation yet, it’s because we don’t yet know which litter will be yours. Litter assignments occur about one week before they are ready to take home.  If you have a reservation, and don’t receive an invitation for this litter, don’t worry, because Dawn, Mi Mi , Blondie and Gem will also have babies available very soon!

NEW: you can now reserve tame, domesticated Roof Rat babies!

NEW: want a rat sooner, or don’t want to pay a deposit?  Sign up for adult or rescue rats!

And, while you are waiting, why not order a Handmade Hideaway or Hammock?

God I love this thing!
