I got Bandi from the Traverse City Pet Smart store. I was told by the attendant that all of their animals are raised for pets from a wholesale rattery in Texas named Rainbow Rattery. I haven't been able to find out any information about this place or his ancestory, but I couldn't resist him and his cagemate Bareback Blues.

When I first got him he was very timid and shy, but has grown into a very friendly out-going guy, by working to gain his trust. He is very "nosy." He has to investigate everything you are doing and he loves to hoard his food. He'll have piles of it inside his hut.

When I first got him it was so noisy in the store I couldn't tell that he had raspy breathing. He had a real bad respiratory infection and was on two different kinds of antibiotics. It took over three weeks to get him healthy but he is doing fine now (10-21-06).

I followed proper quarantine practices and his myco infection did not effect any other rats in my rattery.

Update: 07/14/07 We found Bandi Boy dead today at our outside summer, free roaming pen. It appeared he may have had a urinary tract infection and we didn't realize it.
