It never is easy to rehome. Not one bit. :<
And I hear you on the rat vet, my sister had a hard time finding one for her rats. The most common mistake vets make is treating small animals like cats. -_-"
Fenris <3 I'd love to squeeze him into a great big hug!
By the way, your names are all Nordic or something. Where did you come up with your pets names? I like them! (I noticed Odin, my sister named her betta Odin after some Nordic something)

Enkil is from Anne Rice, and Fenris is from Norse Mythology (aka Frenrir) and was a monsterous wolf.

Oh, I love explaining my names. ^_^

Enkil - I actually am using this from one of my novels, in which it is the name of a place.

Odin - Norse God
Fenris - Also known as Fenrir. Monstrous wolf.
Freydis - Female Viking
Egil - Male Viking
Leonidas - Spartan king
Lolth - I read a lot of R. A. Salvatore. This is the name of the drow goddess.
Fflur - I also read a lot of Laurell K. Hamilton. This is from her Merry Gentry series.
Gywnfor - Same as Fflur. RIP
Eva - Friend named
Sholto - Same as Fflur
Doyle - Same as Fflur
Frost - Same as Fflur
Uther - Same as Fflur


Fenris takes hugging very well. ^_^ I also have 2 types of depression. Between that and the need for comfort after a panic attack or flashback... I have had him in my lap quite a few times to hug and cry on. He sits there very nicely. Will even lick my face and rest his head on my shoulder or arm.

Agreed that not all vets are the same as that one. I should know that better than anyone; I own rats. Try finding a vet that gives two hoots about THEM. So, please, stop bashing all vets because of an old wives' tale.
My vet loves rats... I took her in for a checkup, and my (wonderful) vet LOVED her. She said she hah had some before, and therefore let her scamper around the exam table and explore. They she picked her up to go take her to get her nails clipped, and sat little Socks on her shoulder.... Socks woulden't come off, even for her favorite snack...! Hope you found a good vet like mine! :P

Fenris is working on leash manners.

I was so proud of him last night! We took him with us to PetSmart to pick up more food. We met a couple who are obviously Bully people as they instantly noticed him and wanted to see him. The woman was pregnant. Fenris made her day by giving her lots of kisses. I was so proud because he was obviously very excited but refrained from jumping on her! He was so careful with her. His whole body was wiggling with his tail.

He has been very good with the roommate's two little girls today. So I gave him a smoked rolled pig skin as a reward. He licked at them but didn't jump. So he's definitely getting better with his manners. So very proud of him. Pulls on the leash still. Working on that.
