    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.

    Hi! So I recently adopted 2 baby boy ratties from a rescue organization, they are about 5-6 weeks old, so pretty young! My question is if I should be picking them up as much as I can since they are so young, I want them to be used to being held and what not. I’ve only had them for 3 days now...

    Today I was playing with the baby ratties and I noticed that little Prince's eye looked different so I picked it up and saw it was open! I started to cry because I was so happy that my little babies were opening their eyes. Every rat except Domino, Link, and Luna have one eye or both open at the...

    I got my three cuties today! Gah!!! They're so cute! They're inside their shells at the moment, but I believe they'll warm up to us soon. I'm so excited to finally have our babies home with us. They're three little girls.
