Thanks Nerdy Rat
Hey guys! We discovered your podcast recently and just love it. My boyfriend and I are about to get our first little girl rats in the next couple months, and it was such a coincidence to find this pod wherein my old love of all things nerd and my newfound interest in keeping rats are combined. Keep it up!
