People are assholes

Last night somebody called me asking if I still rescued rats. I told them yes I had the room for at least two rescues. They want to drop their rat off. Ok fine, I give them the address. They are a half hour late and I'm getting restless, I go to lay down and the doorbell rings. I get up to answer it and I hear a car pull away. I open the door and nobody is there. I look down and see one of these that I couldn't see through it was so dirty. I take it directly into the quarentine room and open it up. The smell of pee attacked me. My eyes watered and I gagged. The bedding appeared to be pine but it was so pee clogged I couldn't tell. The water source was a moldy apple and the food was that store bought mix with lots of sunflower seeds and corn (ack!). The rat was the saddest thing of all. I put photos of her behind the cut. She's a very sweet black berkshire who attacked my hand with licks when I picked her up. I put her in the ten gallon aquarium\topper with some fresh water, food, veggies, and pasta. After she ate, I bathed her to get rid of the rancid odar. To my surprise, I saw no signs of external parasites. I put her on medication and Ivermectin. This morning she was still alive so I'm hoping her asshole "owner" got her to me in time. She has a vet appointment tomorrow. I would have gone today but the only time they had available was when I needed to be in jury duty.

It's not the photo. She's caved in, her ribs are very obvious as is her vertabrae, and she is weightless.
Fuzz is kinda caved in but she has fat and her "caved in" look is because she had two litters and she's saggy. This rat is emaciated (sp?)

Were there more? Cuz she said at least two, right? Now I'm worried about the others too. ;_;

She is adorable. I want to coddle her.

No I said I had room for two rats and they said they wanted to drop off their rat. Didn't say they had two.
