Ah, the Hollywood stereotype of “evilness”
The pew rat most likely to be… Abused, due to their lack of novelty appeal.
Used as snake food.
Used for experimental propose.
And worst of all, left WITHOUT forever loving homes, even by Rat lovers.
They are most likely to enter a shelter, & less likely to leave.
Pews are the HARDEST to place into homes.
ONLY BECAUSE OF THEIR LOOKS.
Their “not so pretty” color.
I personally ADORE the pew rat, the man I get mines from for the last 9+ Years, rarely has them…because they are the first to sell, for snake food.
When I got 4 New rats, I knew I wanted a pew. I’m now a proud owner of 2, Tofu (male) & Kikyõ (female)
So when your out looking for a new pet rat. Please consider the PEW’S

I want a pew. Real bad.
Jelly was found with his siblings, muffin and bagel, and their mother marmalade in an abandoned trailer near tulsa. They lived the first six weeks of their lives as feral babies, never seeing a single human, just their wonderful, full corg momma. They’ve come a long way in the last few weeks and I can honestly say this puppy is effectively stealing my heart. His eye is goopy, but he’s still pretty cute.
******* IMPORTANT: CATS ARE GOING TO BE TRAPPED AND EVEN MURDERED BY LOCAL ANIMAL CONTROL DUE TO FELINE LEASH LAWS********
Hey, you see that cat? He’s mine, his name is Mocha, he and his two brothers are rescues. I love them to death, as does the rest of my family. But, apparently, all that Animal Control wants is their death.
See, we have cat doors, so our furry friends come and go. Lots of families in the neighborhood do it; our cats are neutered, vaccinated, and friendly, so there’s no reason not to.
Now, let me ask a question: Do you keep your cats on leashes? Most people don’t. But my neighbor decided that all of the neighborhood cats were too annoying, so she called Animal Control to report that cats were “not leashed.” Apparently, yes, cats should be kept on leashes in yards, according to local regulations.
Sumner County Animal Control decided the best way to fix this is to set traps for cats and send them to a shady kill shelter. This is outright dangerous in the summer heat to leave cats trapped for hours at a time without water. Trapped cats will be sent to this “shelter” and owners will not be notified, even if a cat is collared.
The shelter charges a hundred dollars to retrieve a pet, and the Gallatin shelter is known for bad conditions and putting animals to sleep before the standard wait time. To boot, they came and told us all of this in front of my five-year-old sister, who loves these cats more than anything. She’s now in tears and inconsolable, and afraid that her best friend are going to be trapped and murdered just for doing what cats do.
Please help me save the local cats and sign this petition:
Your support is needed and appreciated, please let Sumner County know that this is cruel and unfair treatment of innocent animals. Please reblog & share.
that pretty much like saying you can never let your cats out! We put a leash on my cat once he just sat down and refused to move…
- Feline immunodeficiency virus
- Moving cars
- Stationary cars (cats often hide under the hood in winter because it’s warm and people may start the car without realizing)
- Malicious people (who might harm them for fun or kidnap them to sell them to research facilities or even use them as bait for fighting dogs)
- Encounters with poisonous animals
- Loose dogs
- Other loose cats
- Other poisons (intentionally and maliciously or by way of consuming a poisoned rodent)
- Native predators (coyotes, bears, big cats, even some birds of prey are large enough to and will take a wandering cat)
There’s tons of reason not to.
There’s a really simple solution to this. Keep your cats indoors and only allow them safe excursions on a harness, in an outdoor enclosure (catio) or in a properly cat fenced yard. You know… like we do with our dogs?
I’m actually really glad that leash laws are beginning to extend to cats. It means less cats are being unnecessarily killed outdoors (because I imagine most people will do the smart thing and keep their cats indoors or on a leash with this law in action) and less native wildlife (particularly birds) are being killed to the point of being put on the endangered species list.
Finally, someone tackled this post. I was going to but they did a very good job. Just keep your cat indoors or safe outdoors, it’s simple.
Im an advocate of indoor cats with monitored outdoor time (if any outdoor time. Fiv is crazy as well as other kitty diseases).
It’s been a while since Henry and I have tumbld, but today is a special day! Our foster corg Gretchen turned a year old! She went from horrible health in a sub par home to wearing fancy dresses and eating cake. Fostering is great.
