    Hello all, I’ve got two 8-9 month old fancy rats, Remi Wolf, and Rizzo. Remi always marked constantly, had a lot of buck grease, and would sometimes get a little too rough with Rizzo. I decided to get them neutered since Rizzo also had a decent amount of buck grease and they both had that musky...

    I brought home a rat after my living rat’s brother passed away, and there were times when they would get along, but they would mostly squabble, and ended up hurting each other a few times. We introduced him slowly and put him in the cage after they were getting along, and it seemed okay for the...

    Hi! So I’ve currently have my pet rat cream gotten from a really crappy pet store (didn’t know it was bad at the time) he’s about a year and a half old it looks to be? And recently adopted 2 young rats (Bongo and Bandit) from a breeder who are about 5 months old. How this all started: I...

    Hi! Posted here a couple times before, im trying hard to get my two rats, Jasper and Gus Gus back together again. I had to separate them a couple months ago because they were aggressively fighting non stop. I got Jasper (the aggressor) neutered, he still tries to bite me so i’m hesitant to...

    Hi, My alpha rat is starting to get really territorial after we upgraded to a double critter nation. He is territorial sometimes in-cage but aggressively territorial during free-range. I don’t want to neuter him as he isn’t attacking other rats, only aggressive & fluffy when he feels another...

    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...

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...
