Will most likely get Buttercup (I kind of started calling him cool Jeff) neutered.
hopefully that will solve his aggression issues. We really have nothing to loose if getting him fixed doesn’t solve his aggression. The only thing is that it’s pricey but rats aren’t cheap animals and he deserves to live a happy life. I need to make some phone calls and try to find out the price at my local vets. All the places I know of are $130+ but I’m not familiar with the vets around here and since its a pretty risky procedure I would rather have a reputable vet neuter him so I can feel more at ease that everything will turn out fine. However this means I would have to wait until I go back to LA which will be in December. I guess that gives me time to save up some money. I can use my vet fund money to get him neutered but I do not want to do that because my vet fund will then be 0 dollars and that’s not very smart.

I’ve had Buttercup for a little less than 24 hours and hes just making me realize (even more) how much I miss my girls. He seems to be settling well and he loves exploring. I just wish I could bring my girls up, i miss them more than anything. I miss Eva ignoring me but running to my arms when I would rustle the bag of food. And how I would always tell her “Eva besito” and she would give me kisses just so I could let go of her. I miss Soma jumping up everything time I would shout “Gomy!!!!” and I always had to be extra quiet because as soon as I woke up its almost as if she sensed it and she would just jump up! I miss Fri-fri coming up to me because she’s my skittish girl and every time she did I would feel sooo special. I miss Bub my hairless girl and the naps she would take on my shoulder and her little head sway. I miss the baby rat, tiny lil bub, and how she would only respond to my voice no matter how many times my family would call out to her. I miss every single thing about Dharma. I would tell her everyday that she has no clue how much I love her and I dont think she does. I miss giving her extra treats and then greedy little Eva would notice so I would have to give everyone more treats but at the end I would sneak one more to my cutie dharm. I need my girls and I’m trying my very best to get them up here. I feel so helpless though, I really don’t have any control over this situation

OH NO HE IS TOO CUTE!! Are you gonna neuter him? Is he gonna stay named buttercup?

He’s such a handsome rat! I think Butters is a really cute name but he also looks like a Jeff to me so we shall see. I don’t think I’m going to get him neutered but I might do it if I start saving up.
