This adorable fellow is adoption hopeful "Socrates". He's the latest addition at Cayleb's Kindred Senior Dog Rescue after being surrendered to a local animal shelter. Roughly 2 to 3 years old, Socrates' favorite things to do are: eat, explore, cuddle, and hoard food.
He came into the studio for his DelaFoto debut to help get interest for his adoption or even fostering. It can be hard for a rat to get noticed in the rescue world, so I these photos should help.
He was particularly fun to photograph being easily lured by his favorite treat, chocolate chips! While he's visually impaired (typical of albino rats), you wouldn't know it. He got around just fine, following his keen nose and using his ample whiskers. I'm happy with the resulting photos, it was tough to just to share 4, he's so photogenic!
