Framed, 10" x 12" oil on canvas of Pearl, the rat. Pearl was a resident of The Rat Retreat, Inc., an Idaho sanctuary for domestic rats. She was rescued from a situation where she and her siblings were being bred for snake food. One third of the proceeds go to The Rat Retreat, Inc.

She was one of four of the girls who were pregnant. She was the only mother who was happy to escape the babies for awhile in order to play. The photo for this was taken when she climbed into the playpen and leaned over to watch me play with her babies.

Pearl lived at The Rat Retreat with her children and siblings until she was nearly three years old. She was spayed after she delivered her only litter. She was always outgoing and friendly and came when her name was called.

Painting was done in oil on canvas and varnished to a high gloss. Wood frame is ready to hang. Painting is signed and dated by artist in lower right hand corner.

This is the mission of The Rat Retreat:
To provide lifetime care for abandoned domestic rats in a home where there is human companionship 24/7. To educate the public about the plight of domestic rats including: being over-bred; being used as live food for other animals; being kept in pet stores where their problems are exacerbated by lack of knowledge on the part of the staff; being sold as pets without accompanying information on their requirements as exotics. To research new avenues of health care for domestic rats with the goals of reducing the three main causes of early death: tumors, respiratory and heart problems.
