Dwight and Chunk — Petraits Rescue
today at 7:42 am
Dwight and Chunk are handleable, shy, healthy, sweet and companionable, five-month-old brother rats looking for a loving guardian.
These boys love each other and are easy to pick up and handle.
The boys eat rat blocks as their main diet, but enjoy very tiny bites of a lot of other foods including brown rice and beans, fruits: apples, cherries, grapes, strawberries, melons and plums, and veggies including broccoli, peas, carrots, cooked sweet potato, kale, parsley, bok choy and squash. Rats can get diarrhea if you give them too many treats at one time.
They enjoy being held and climb on your hands, arm and sit in the pocket of a hoodie.
The two rats, their small cage, water bottle, food and litter are available for an adoption donation of $75 to the Friends of Petraits Rescue. If you only want the rats and not their supplies, they are available for an adoption fee of $50.

They are currently being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood. To adopt Chunk and Dwight, please fill in the adoption application at https://friendsofpetraits.com/adoption-application/.
