New video of my Two Legged Rat Nubby

7:37 PM Posted In , Edit This
Here is a video of the most amazing rat in the world! For those of you who don't know her, her name is Nubby. She only has two legs.. her back legs. She was either born with no front legs or had an injury as a pinky. I'm not 100% entirely sure.

She is an amazing rat. She can do just about anything a 4 legged rat can do with the exception of running on a wheel, that she can not do. But, she can pretty much do anything else. This disability has not stopped her in anyway.

She is now just over 2 years old so she is an old girl now. Most of you who read my blog already know her from the rat groups i belong to but for those of you who don't know her she really is a miracle rat. She has accomplished some pretty amazing things-- When she was about 4-5 weeks old, maybe a bit older she got lose in my bedroom and pretty much vanished for 2 week. YES 2 WEEKS. I could not find her. I looked everywhere for her and after a week i was pretty upset and was fairly sure something bad had happened to her.

Finally, at about the middle of the second week she was gone, i was sitting on the bedroom floor and out of the corner of my eye i saw something. I looked down and there she was... underneath my night stand and she walked right up to me. You can't believe how happy and relieved i was.

What else has she accomplished besides being lost for two weeks. One thing i never wanted to happen to her. A friend of mine came to visit.. she was passing threw town and she wanted to stop by for a bit. She brought along her young son. To make a long story short. I left him alone in my bedroom while i went to talk to his mother in the living room. I had boys free ranging and i had Nubby safely on the play table. I failed to tell the young boy not to put boys on the table nor put Nubby on the floor. When i walked in the bedroom i saw a black male not only on top of the table but also on top of Nubby. About 22 days later Nubby gave birth to 3 healthy babies- Ruby, Tuesday and Pickett (Pickett is named after a good friend of mine). Her babies are almost a year no i believe and doing well.

And yes, she accomplished one other thing... she had tumor removal surgery about 2 months ago. She had a small tumor on her side, near her hip. She survived the surgery and recovered faster than any rat of mine that has had tumor surgery.

So... you see, she has accomplished a lot. And not only that... she has accomplished two other things... Stealing my heart and the heart of many other people around the world.

I took this short video of her tonight and thought I'd show you all. ENJOY!
