JetFacebook page, you probably know that we are currently fostering a gorgeous kitty cat named Jet.
Jet is a five year old silver spotted Bengal cat. He's a big boy at 15+ pounds. I am fostering him for Great Lakes Bengal Rescue.
Jet needs to find the right match. The previous family that tried to adopt him had issues. He became a completely different cat. He stopped using the litter box, and he attacked them whenever they came into the bathroom for a week. So, potential adopters may need to have some patience with him. He has not and is not displaying any of those behavior problems here, so I'm not able to offer any advice other than that maybe he just needs a different environment.
He does "okay" with my own animals, as in he sniffs them and shows interest, and doesn't attack them, but due to his experiences with the last adopters, I believe the rescue would prefer if he was an only pet.
If you're interested in adopting him, please visit his Petfinder page.
At my college, in the veterinary technology program, there is a lab and exotics class. The class receives rats and mice on the last Monday of class from Harlan laboratories. They use these mice and rats to practice skills, ranging from handling and restraint, to IP injections.
If no one wants to take the mice or rats home, they are euthanized and dissected. I wasn't going to let that happen this month! :)
Thanks to some great networking on rat forums, I am fostering the six lab rats for a week and a half until someone from Michigan is coming to pick them up and offer a more permanent fostering situation while she finds them homes.
In between then and now, if anyone local wants to adopt a lab rat from me, please contact me. There will also be transport through Michigan. There are five currently available. They're all males, and they are young, between 5 and 8 weeks of age.
