Animal control officers found a Los Angeles woman living with 120 pet rats (most were in cages but some were running around), 25 rabbits, a dog, 6 parakeets, a quail and a cockatiel. (Quail?) The woman was taken to the hospital to be treated for animal bites on her arms.
The woman said that it just started with two rats and she was surprised over how quickly they reproduced. (Someone needs to have the birds-and-the-bees talk with her.) Most of the animals are healthy and will be available for adoption.
