I adopted five of the rats that AWS received back in the fall of 2018. I brought home two of the babies (now named Sprepsi and Hoops) and the three moms (now named Lumley, The Baba Yaga, and Freckle.) I wanted to highlight Freckle since she was very understandably defensive when I first brought her home, and now is the most relaxed rat I have. She loves sleeping upside down with her two daughters and the rest of her cage mates and genuinely likes getting human attention, even when there aren’t treats involved. Thank you everyone at AWS for giving so many animals a chance to find a happy forever home.
