Meet our pets of the week, Colette and Lalo, a pair of friendly hooded rats who are looking for a new home to live together.
They arrived at RSPCA Blackpool a week ago after a member of the public rescued the two from a pet shop, which was trying to sell them as live bait.
Despite this they have an extremely friendly nature and an RSPCA spokeswomen says they are perfect for first time owners.
Both are one-year-old and love to play, so it would be best for them to live in a spacious cage with some toys to keep them active.
It’s recommended the sisters are adopted together for a donation of £15 due to the fact that rats are very social animals.
