Edith and Agnes are staying with Mrs. Nelson until school starts, so they will be getting lots of valuable socialization, which is important for families wanting to enjoy a small pet. One of the best things about this pair is how clean they like to keep their cage. Mrs. Nelson put shavings on the bottom of their cage, and now the girls are close to "potty trained"--meaning, they typically eat up on their shelves and only go to the bathroom in the shavings. The shavings are easy to scoop out and replace, which has made for a nice smelling cage! (Our degus never quite figured this out...) They LOVE yogurt and also eat lettuce, apples, and carrots to supplement their diet of rat food. They are so sweet and like to cuddle sometimes too. They can be adopted at any time and would love to meet you.
Welcome to our Critter Camp blog.
Windsor Elementary 4th Grade and the Animal Rescue League of Iowa are partnering to create "Critter Camp". The 4th grade classrooms will be caring for small animals from the ARL that are in need of foster care until they are ready for adoption. This blog will share about our foster critters' progress and their search for their forever home.
