Don't Worry, Be Happy

As I mentioned in the last post, Ben was a young rat who was only 6 months old when surrendered to the East TAS location. He was a very, very sweet boy who enjoyed cuddling and giving kisses.

He was transferred to South, and was soon adopted by someone on a rat forum where I post our available rats. They've now had him two weeks and they posted these awesome photos:
Look at that! He looks so much happier. His new home really knows what they're doing. He's shown a little attitude with the other boys in their house, so they're planning to have him neutered. They report that he is being very cuddly and lovable in his new home.
This is my favourite photo:
Look at that comfy rat! Makes me smile every time I look at it.
From homeless to curled up on a soft blanket. I was talking to someone in rescue the other day. They were trying to make the argument that dog/cat/horse rescue is more satisfying than small animal rescue, and that's why those animals have more volunteers, more organizations and more publicity. The rescuer argued that happy endings for dogs, cats or horses are more satisfying to see.
I had to laugh, because maybe it's just me, but that photo is pretty damn satisfying.
