FOUND - Cumbernauld

Post by squeaky » Thu Jul 05, 2007 10:10 am

Has anyone lost a rat, or know anyone who has, in the Cumbernauld area?

A lady brought a rat out to me last night which had been living in her garden for at least the last few days.
The rat is friendly and seems very comfortable with being handled.

I doubt a wild rat would be friendly. I hope someone hasn't dumped their pet :(

No, most definitely not a wild rat.

The lady had asked around her neighbourhood and no-one knew anything, hence contacting me as she couldn't take him in, but didn't want to leave him in the wild.

Sounds like the poor rat was just left to fend for itself. :(

My boyfriend found a rat when he was younger, running about the roads so he called to it and it came up to him. There's no way that the rat was wild if it was tame enough to answer him and be happy being handled. He kept the rat a good few years, her name was Leah, she was a gorgeous wee character and kept me busy when my bf couldnt :wink: I think I fell in love with Leah more than my OH (shh) :lol:

I've heard of lots like this over the years...

I once got brought one that had been posted through a shop letterbox. We called him Bill.
