Observations from Angela Lennox, DVM:

A Merry Christmas Surprise

Yesterday an owner surrendered a very “fat” young female rat with a broken leg; the owners could not afford care for her.  She was surrendered to one of our great rescues, Pipsqueakery, but set up for the night at the clinic for amputation of the lower part of her leg in the morning, as it couldn’t be easily repaired.
 
One hour later we found this!

We nicknamed the wee babies  Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen, oh and then Rudolph. But wait! There was one more!  That one became Nicholas of course.
 
This morning mom had a quick surgery to remove the broken portion of the leg.
