    Hi everyone, I'm hoping for some advice regarding neutering. I have two male rats, one about 6 months (pig), one about 5 months (sweetie). They have been together as happy cage mates for about 4 months, and had no aggression issues once they figured out who was boss (though there was never much...

    So, i’ve only had my rats for 4 days, they’re boys from the same litter and they’re about 8 months old (they were rehomed to me). i made a post a couple days ago but i’m making another one bc i’m even more concerned than before. Jasper is like terrorizing poor Gus Gus. Gus Gus hides behind a...

    I have 3 girls, one is over a year old, and 2 are younger that I got about 6 months ago. The oldest girl is very well behaved and so is the other younger one, but the other baby is very odd. She acts like shes fighting nothing, she doesnt sleep with the other rats often, and she doesnt play with...

    I had three rats, two dislike each other and fight, and one gets along with both brothers. Sadly, my boy who got along with both brothers passed away and the two who hate each other are now stuck with each other. Sometimes they are fine, but sometimes one will get in the other’s face and start a...

    We have 2 male rats, Leo and Dumpling. I've noticed that during free roam, Dumpling will sometimes come up while I'm sitting and grab/bite clothes, like my sleeve or pant leg, and pull hard. One time, he did this to my sleeve while also kicking, and because he got some of my skin he left quite...

    Hello! Two weeks ago, I adopted a third rat, Himbus, as a new buddy for my current boys Gobbles and Scrumps. Himbus was fine when I first met him and I thought it was him being cuddly (my boys are very friendly and will try to get on the shoulders of bre people they meet) when the lady I got him...

    Hi everyone. I'm just looking for some advice here on my previously neglected rats. Context; I recently rescued a few young males and they're extremely timid and one is even a bit aggressive. I'm trying to gradually trust train them by giving them treats from my hands and giving them liquid...

    My boy Ratsputin is normally very sweet though very energetic. I've only had him about 3 weeks but he's had no issues taking things from my hands, letting me pick him up, etc. Earlier today we were working on him being okay with being handled on his back and "come" with no issues. This evening...

    Let’s start off at the beginning, I took three male rats (Sebastian, Julian and Caesar) from a friend who could no longer look after them and only a couple months after having them, Caesar had to be put down due to neurological problems which was extremely heartbreaking. After that incident...

    Hi all, I adopted two 6-month-old sisters from a lady needing to rehome (time constraints). They came from a group with 3 other older females and was told they are the result of a friends oops litter. A day or two after I got them back, they both bit me fairly badly while I was tidying up the...

    Hi all, I have an aggression issue with two female rats! I adopted these two 6-month-old sisters from a local lady needing to rehome (time constraints mostly). They came from a group with 3 other older females and was told they are the result of a friends oops litter (the lady seemed legit). A...

    Hello everyone, I'll try to make this as concise as possible. If you dont want to read all of this, the main questions I have are: how to treat a bite on your rats? (So far I dabbled some germaline on.) And I've neutered my rat but he's still aggressive to my other rats, what else can I do...

    So, about a week ago i got two new rats (Jack and Vincent), and besides them both being very underweight, Vincent is very hostile and he stands with his ears back in a corner every time i try to interact with him, hes also bitten me quite hard a few times. Of course ive been feeding them plenty...

    My rat Diego today bit me twice. The first time this morning was on my finger and I admit, part of it was definitely my fault since i woke him up with yogurt on my finger and half awake he probably just smelt food and his instincts kicked in but the second time I was kissing my lovely, super...

    I just got 3 female rats from a breeder, they're just over 7 weeks old. I got rats because Google kept saying they were friendly/clever/curious/the perfect pets, but: One of them bites me. The breeder handled them every day, and they've been treated well, and I was told none of them ever bit...

    My rats have been fighting quite a bit lately, and while a lot of it seems like playfighting it’s gotten a lot more aggressive in the last couple of days. While I don’t think they’ve really injured each other yet, it’s obvious that most of their fighting isn’t harmless. I had to break up a...

    Hi everyone. I am in the process of doing my first intros. I have 4 boys, 2 around 19 weeks and 2 around 9 weeks. I started intros on Wednesday, they spent a morning in the carrier, about 36 hours in the hamster cage and then I moved them into the main cage, sectioned off. They all got on so...

    I have 3 girls. Halley and Rosemary are about ten months old and Cam is about a year. None of them are related, all adopted from rescues; Halley I've had the longest, and I adopted Rosemary and Cam in December 2020 after Halley's sister didn't wake up from a spay. Cam is a chunky rat and weighs...
