Hi there.  I'm just looking thru the New Rattitude site, and I happened to see Betsy.  She's a real cutie.  I hope she finds her forever home.  I found my Rattie - Fetch - thru N.R also, in August of 2017.  We are doing so well, and in fact, he and I decided to bring the abandoned cat inside whom we found on our front porch last November.  Now we are a forever family of three.  And-- we also live in Glen Allen.  Thanx for your great work as a foster family.

Thanks, Laurel.  And thank you for finding your buddy through New Rattitude!   I hope I run into you some day.    Sue

I think Betsy is so cute.  Is she still looking for a furever home or has she already found one?
I just lost my mini Rattie to old age and the loss of her life long Black Lab partner in play, running and friendship.  
I vowed that I was not going to get another Rattie, but here I am!  Please advise ASAP, thanks.

Sharon, Thanks for the interest.  I sent you an email.  But if you didn't get it and you are still interested, please open an application on the site.
