A happy ending for Elmer and Toby

Posted in Adoptions at 6:00 am by Jenn

Elmer and TobyCongratulations to Elmer and Toby for finding their forever home, and thanks so much to Jenn for offering it to them!

Jenn saw Elmer on Petfinder and fell in love with him.  She was adamant — she understood he was an older rat, and somewhat lazy, and (dare we say it) a bit of a fattie.  But she didn’t care.  We’d recently had an older guy named Toby come in, so we paired Elmer and Toby and they began their their trip to Jenn!

The two boys are now lazing around in a palatial ferret cage covered in fleeces and pillow and toys.  Jenn reports that Toby spends a lot of time sleeping, and is prone to be let out for exercise time only to be found underneath desks and boxes snoozing away.  Old man rats do tend to be a bit on the lazy side…

At any rate, thank you Jenn for offering these two older fellows a comfortable and loving place to retire.  Score one for retirement rats!

    Wow! Fat Rat becomes a Fat Cat and gets to retire in luxury!

    Elmer obviously knows how to win the heart of ladies- without species discrimination! And Toby knows how to handle stress – by bedding down in a comfy spot and waiting for the humans to bring on the goodies! No worrying about their retirement plans!

    Congrats to the Rats! and to Jenn for seeing their beauty.
    Way to go guys!
