About Triscuit (Rat)

Small Mammal
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Introducing Triscuit! This little guy is a sweet boy who is looking for a home with an experienced rat owner. He's a little shy, but he enjoys knowing whats going on around him. He likes to 'explore' from the safety of his foser mom's lap where he feels safe abd secure. Triscuit likes giving kisses and gently nibbling on fingers as a way to give affection. He enjoys head scratches and pets, although he makes a show of cleaning himself off in between pets... sassy! Triscuit came to us from the pound and we have absolutely no history on him. The vet says he appears to be about 12-16m old and he's in good health. It's quite clear that Triscuit lived a fairly sheltered life prior to coming to us. He's a bit on the shy side (although he's easy to handle), and seems to be learning about toys and treats for the first time. We always prefer that rats live in pairs or groups because they are so social. The first time that Triscuit saw another rat while in our care, he was clearly quite overwhelmed. We do have not have any other rats that we can introduce him to at the moment, so we don't know how he will react to others if given a slow and proper introduction. Triscuit's ideal home will be with someone who has other male rats, and has experience with introductions, to see if Triscuit can be integrated into a group, but who would be willing to keep him separately if he is not willing to live with others. If you'd like to learn more about Triscuit, please contact us at [email protected] and tell us about your family.
