    Hello everyone! I have some great news, we picked up our three baby girl rats yesterday evening from the breeder! They are seven weeks old today and I couldn't be more excited to have them! 🧡 So obviously they are very nervous and shy in their new home for now, one of them is more brave, one of...
  4. General Rat Topics
    Hello! I just adopted two 2 month old rats yesterday. I've heard that rats do better in groups than they do in pairs so my plan was to get the two boys settled in and then start looking around for more roommates for them. I'm not quite sure what the timeline should be like to get the...
  5. Rat Behavior
    Hi :) I recently got my first rats - 4 females that are about 8 weeks old. One of the babies is smaller and more timid than the others. I've been following all the trust training advice, using treats, familiarisation etc but it seems as though I make progress with her and then the next day it...

    Hi all, I have four female rats who are about 13-14 weeks old. They have been together since birth and have always been happy as a group. A couple of nights ago I noticed that one of the girls is spending all of her time downstairs in the cage, and when she tries to go into the upstairs bed she...

    Hii!! So my rat has just had 3 pups. Doesn’t seem to be pushing anymore so seems like a small littler. She also isn’t nursing, I’m worried about the babies does this usually take a while? Also am I able to move mama and babies isn’t a different cage that’s safer for the pups or better off to...

  9. Rat Behavior
    I've had rats all my life, but recently took a break from them when I had a child. My rats have always been sweet, friendly, energetic, adventuresome, curious, super smart, playful, entertaining, calm and just generally great pets. Well, my son is 6 now, and since he did so well with our...

    I recently adopted two little girls— Sniffer and Stevie from a breeder. When I brought them home, I played with them while my partner set up their cage (took a while— had to put construction fabric over it since the wire spacing was too large). Everything seemed really good— I’ve had four rats...

    Hey there. I'm new to this site and to being a rat owner. For over a year I do my research on rats now before I finally got some, but something unexpected happened. On June 7th I picked up three boys from a questionable seller. I barely interacted with her for three minutes before I had the...

    So I have new rat babies I’ve had them nearly 2 weeks. And I’m struggling to stop them from biting so I can start stroking and holding. I recently just tried the spoon technique (make an eek when they bite it) and now I’m using soft foods so they’ll learn to lick instead of bite. They only seem...

    I have two girls Penelope and Peach, they are about 5-6 weeks old and they are just the most adorbale rats I've ever seen, but they are not very playful with me... They tend to run and hide from me unless I have food for them or I'm giving Penelope water... Peach really wants nothing to do with...

Jasmine is such a good mommy, although she has decided that as time goes on that she is going to bury them more and more into the nest lol. But I have decided not to disturb her and let her do her mommy thing. Although I...
