A happy ending for Viola and Alyssum.

alyssumviolaCongratulations to Viola and Alyssum for finding a forever home!  Mary and her family contacted ACR&S because they had a single older lady, Nermal, left after her cagemate had passed away.  Nermal was depressed and sad (as happens all too often with small animals when they lose bondmates) and they were anxious to get Nermal a new friend ASAP!

The introductions went pretty well.  Nermal, like most distinguished matrons, didn’t have a lot of patience for the madcap insanity of two infant rats, but after a few sharp corrections and scoldings, things seemed to be falling into place.  We left the introduction feeling good, and with a plan in place for ongoing socialization.  Mary reports that Nermal and the girls are living together now, and though there are still a few squabbles here and there, things have calmed greatly.

Thank you again, Mary and family, for offering these itty bitty babies a wonderful place to grow up and call their own.

    Bless Ms Nermal for agreeing to parent these little ones! Also bless Mary and the human family for understanding Nermal’s grief and their willingness to take in two more little beings to keep her company.

    Such a happy story! The good ACRS humans have done it again- turned grief into joy!
