problem

Post by smudge35 » Mon Jun 06, 2005 2:47 pm

i will be getting my rats in the summer holidays (at school still :()and i was wondering when it would be best to get them as i will be going on holiday for two weeks but then when i come back i will only have one week until i go back to school.
so what i am really saying should i get them before i go on holiday which will be 4 weeks with them as i can spend time settling them in or get them after holiday when i only have one week for them to settle them in?? as could they get depressed if I leave them to soon?
thanks in advance and sorry its sooo long :lol:

I would get them after, it saves finding people to look after them and also as it would be the first few weeks of getting to know them I think it mght be best if you got them when you came back- then they'd have undivided attention for the week and when you went back to school they'd get used to the routine and still be handled daily.

I agree with 24_carrot_gold, I'd get them after your holiday. You can spend the last week of your school holiday spoiling them and getting used to each other. When you go back to school they will be waiting eagerly for you to return home and play with them. But your parents may have other ideas - homework first then ratty time!! (Parents are boring like that!!)

I agree. Holiday first, Rats when you return! It makes the most sense to me.

After. And, just curiously, any names planned? I love seeing different people's rat names. ^^

How about convincing your parents you should get them soon and taking on a couple of the rescue rats on the rescue and rehoming board? I'm sure there are still adtrader rescues which need homes and these have been well handled so would make good pets
