Age: Adult

Special Criteria What does this mean?
Sanctuary Visit Required

Merlin and Mulder were born in May 2016, but they are already middle aged! They are still shy but are learning that people often bring treats and that's pretty cool. They are still not comfortable getting picked up and handled, but are starting to accept scritches from their human caregiver, so you never know what might happen with the right person. They are looking for a forever home together that is quiet and peaceful. And someone who is super patient with them and willing to let them set the pace. If you are interested but have never cared for rats, we are happy to teach you everything you need to know! Please contact us at wild@bestfriends.org or 435-644- 2001 x4460.
