About Archie

Archie and his five brothers came to Ratty Corner as fosters, but it took me too long to find them homes and I became to attached to them all. They then had a respiratory infection which affected some more than others, but left Archie as a very small rat with far less energy than a youngster should have. At six months old Archie had pneumonia, but pulled through. I don't know if this did him any favours; he breathes heavily and acts like a much older rat, but he keeps on keeping on. Archie doesn't much like being held as I think it restricts him and he needs all the air he can get, but he enjoys being stroked gently and talked to.
