Other species this pet has been exposed to and reaction: Cats through their cage- curious

Has this animal been exposed to children? What was their reaction? Sour has not been exposed to children in his foster home.

Health concerns: None.

Behavioral concerns: His foster has been sitting with the gerbils with the lid off the cage speaking softly to them and trying to move slowly with him. When moving him to his playpen, his foster tries to wait until Sour is on or in an object to transport him instead of grabbing him directly.

Other notes: Sour and Patch are funny little critters. It is entertaining to watch them have fun in their habitat.

Sour & Patch made their way to MNPPR after they did not mix while with their owner's other pets.

Due to our rescue being foster-based, not all foster homes are located in Saint Paul, MN. Sour’s foster parent prefers to meet at either PetSmart location in Rochester, MN - 3845 Marketplace Dr NW, Rochester, MN 55901 & 4603 Maine Ave SE #109, Rochester, MN 55904 for meet & greets, & adoptions.

More about this rescue

MN Pocket Pet Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization primarily serving the Twin Cities Metro Area, focusing on education and public outreach. Our intent is to keep all animals in their homes, with their families, whenever possible. We are committed to rescuing those pocket pets that are in jeopardy of being euthanized or are in danger of being abused, left unattended or in other types of vulnerable situations. We ensure all animals receive proper veterinary care, medication and special training for any behavioral issues, as well as to arrange safe, temporary homes for these animals until stable forever homes can be found. Our team is made up of enthusiastic volunteers who work passionately to serve the underrepresented and often misunderstood niche of pocket pets in the overall rescue community and general public.
