Mouse the rat was received into MBLU Rescue on 7/18/16
Mouse was about 9 days old and thought to be a Rattus rattus (Rr). I had never had very young Rr and they do look a lot the same at eye opening age. As Mouse grew, I knew something looked a bit different than the young Rr I had raised before. After about 6 weeks it was determined that Mouse is actually a Desert Woodrat.
Mouse lives solo because Desert Woodrats are very solitary critters.

Chilly Willy the Opossum was found on the turtle platform in my Spa Pond on 4/27/17. She was wet and cold and too young to be without her mommy. Chilly weighed 94g when she was rescued.
