Joey by Lou / Hope

Joey was living in miserable conditions after his owner abandoned him in an empty apartment. She left him there to starve until her lease was up. She planned on letting him go outside after that. I agreed to take him immediately. He was a beautiful little boy! He had bright eyes and an energetic personality! I was surprised that he was so healthy. His living conditions were a tiny cage with soiled newspaper at the bottom- no water or food. I took him home and he became one of the sweetest bucks (a male rat) I have ever had! He must have been young when I got him because he was HUGE! He was so sweet and kept me and my family company for the next two and a half years. Unfortunately, Joey had to be put to sleep in June of 2008 because of pneumonia. I will continuing rescuing rats as long as I can.
