Rehoming – Profile


Nancy and Norah came from a multi-rat household and were sadly kept in neglectful conditions.

Behaviour observations on site:

Can you offer this sweet and gentle duo the loving and understanding forever home they deserve?

As they came from a house with over 30 rats, we believe Nancy and Norah are unlikely to have been socialised or handled very much and so they both lack confidence in this area.

Nancy is a very timid girl, often choosing to hide in her many houses and hammocks. But if you are quite and patient, she will eventually poke her head out to say “hello” and may even approach for a tasty treat. Norah is more confident; she will happily take treats from your fingertips and sometimes climb onto your arm but she can still be startled by sudden sounds and movements. Both girls love lick-e-lix so this could be a great way to make friends with them and build their trust.

With time and the right loving home, these gorgeous girls would make lovely pets.

They will need a large indoor cage with different levels and plenty of enrichment. Cage sizes can be discussed with staff.

We reserve the right to remove a reserve at any stage of the adoption process if we believe it is in the best interest of the rats. 

Adoption fee: £21 If you would like to make an additional donation over and above the adoption fee, this would be hugely appreciated.

Medical history:

Nancy and Norah came into our care with some mild alopecia and scabs on the skin. They have been given spot-on treatment for this. They currently have no medical issues.

Adopters should consider that previous medical conditions will now not be covered by insurance. Adopters are responsible for the on-going medical costs once the animal has been adopted.
