I have a 1-2 year old fancy rat named Tabitha whom I bought along with her sister Rosemary. I’ve watched her grow from a timid little thing who wouldn’t come near me to a sweet but shy little girl who loves one-on-one attention (since Rosemary is an attention-hog!).
Lately she’s been suffering from a possible UTI, which is common for rats. However, the only medication that I know of is prescription medication - Baytril, which is pretty expensive. The only vet that takes rats nearby is the Banfield Pet Hospital in PetSmart, so I’ll have to take her there – but they’ll pile on not only the office visit but any tests they run, as well as the prescription medication itself. But even as I’m typing this I can hear her breathe from across the room, her wheezing squeaks, and it breaks my heart. She still grooms herself, she still plays with Rosemary, and she still bruxes when I give her attention and take them out for play time.
My father’s company is doing terribly right now; in fact, if things don’t get better everyone is going to have to take a 10%-30% cut in salaries. My mother says I have to pay for the visit and medication myself, which is understandable, however I have no job, and allowance is hard to come by when the money is doing so horribly. I have $58 to my name, which might be enough to cover the office visit itself, but that is such little help when I really need medication for Tabitha.
So, in addition to a donation box thing I’ll be setting up tomorrow, commissions are now open. I’ve got a wide range of prices and art types offers, but I’ll be posting my main offer down here. You can message me for other types.
