They'll stand a better chance if a nursing mum can be found.

ETA - what about a rat train/real train to Wiltshire (http://www.fancy-rats.co.uk/community/v ... 5&t=153320)?
another edit - or to Gateshead (http://www.fancy-rats.co.uk/community/v ... 5&t=153143)?

Spoke to Mupsy again and the babies are older than first originally thought, they have teeth and claws so are 1 week approx. They are with a foster mum at the moment, but depending on how they get on there will determine their next step :). If they don't get on then i think Pink Paws will be taking them on, but if they (hopefully) get on in their current position then that's great.

Pink Paws Rescue is a rescue for Cats/kittens and small animals. My mother set it up 3 or 4 years a go now, and we have successfully re homed over 200 unwanted/neglected cats and hand reared many kittens, numerous rats, guinea pigs and un counted numbers of rabbits. Also homed a few chin chillas too. It's based in Suffolk/Kesgrave just outside of Ipswich and we have many fosterers and co funders/fundraising managment to help keep us going. We stopped last November for a bit, but are constantly taking in "emergencys" :), so our website is currently down at the moment. But we are always on alert on forums like this one to see if we can help out at all, we are also on RHU, and so on :)

Thankyou so so much everyone for your kind offers

Rudyrat is right, the bubbas are now with a foster mum, so fingers crossed they will be ok. Had no time to get photos but they were very fat nakey sausage shaped things! they had no necks and porky little heads teehee

Well... Its with great happyness to announce that although 2 passed away, one little boy made it through his battle for life and has finally come home :)

He went to live with a foster mum who was feeding 4 day old kits.. It soon became obvious the three orphans were very hungry and under-developed.. I'l cut all the middle story but it was a rough journey.... with one survivor...

he is approx 5-6 weeks old going by what the owner of the other litter has told me. Even at this age he is TINY.. hes pictured here with my smallest of boys, button:

For anyone worried, his same-aged friends are coming home very soon to join him! :)
