I sell rodents (African soft-furred rats) as a side hobby.
The thing I shouldn’t have to - but do - tell people who are coming to buy an undomesticated rodent that can jump a foot high from a standstill & run faster than your eye can track?
Bring a travel container. WITH A LID.
Shoutout to the one dumb lady a couple years ago (before I started including that - admittedly insulting to experienced rodent people - message to buyers) who showed up with a shallow shoebox WITH NO LID and she nonchalantly was all, “Oh, it’s only, like, ten minutes to my house.”
I was like, “You’re not gonna make it from my door to your car!”
(Wound up stashing old to-go containers, lettuce boxes, etc. for the people who showed up to buy my rats empty handed. But I always gave them a side-eye. Where were you gonna put five adult soft-furs, your back pocket?)
