Being told that your furry new best friend is actually an “alien rat” would give most pet lovers paws for thought. But this caring woman didn’t let it put her off the sleepy ball of fuzz that she’d brought into her home, after he began his life abandoned outside her local grocery store. She was already in love with the rodent-looking creature, in fact. And so she decided that it was her job to care for him, until he grew into the best-looking member of her family.
The so-called alien’s story began in the parking lot of a local store. A couple were surprised to discover the tiny white creature curled up, alone and left to fend for himself – at just one day old. They’d subsequently scooped the baby up and taken him to safety. Next, the pair began a hunt for someone who may want to take in the creature, whatever it was.
Thankfully, it didn’t take long for someone to come forward and offer the little guy shelter for the foreseeable future. He was well-hydrated and had no health issues, but was in dire need of regular milk, warmth and attention. After all, he’d been separated from his mother and turfed out onto the street before even opening his eyes. And the woman who had come forward, Cali, knew that she was taking on a huge challenge. Consequently, she had no intention of keeping him forever.
