    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...

    I’ve had 8 rats, but I’ve (luckily) never had to deal with an aggressive rat. Yesterday, one of my babies passed away. I don’t want Houdini (my surviving baby) to be alone, so I got two new rats. They’re being kept separately - the kicker is that even the two new rats have to be separate...

    Ive noticed recently that my larger rat (Roddy) has been stealing food from my other rat (Fishbone). Roddy will sometimes not even finish his own food before taking Fishbones and becomes aggressive when he sees him eating. It got really bad when i gave them an egg to share, i noticed that roddy...

    Hi! Backstory: So I've always known my rat Spleens as a sweet and energetic girl, but I knew she needed a friend so I got her one. I accidentally got a male as I was so excited to get another rat I didn't check properly. Long story short, he's been neutered so I'm not worried about mating. My...

    Hi all, I come with an urgent sort of post today. One of my rats has been endlessly harassing my other boys, and now he is hurting them. He is showing every sign of hormonal aggression, and while I wait for a vet appointment, I don't know what to do. He's fluffing up, chasing the others...

    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...

    So I have to give a bit of background. Around a year and a half ago I got my two boy rats, milo and Otis, they were perfectly fine and happy and then I decided I wanted to care for more than just two and I got Fin. Fin is maybe 7 months old now where milo and Otis are a year and a half. I got...

    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...
