    I received the Prevue Feisty Ferret as a gift and as far as I can tell, it's suitable for the female rat pairing I have. However, the bars are vertical and I know horizontal is recommended for climbing. I was thinking of zip-tying those decorative hanging grids to the inside as a solution...

    So i finally got a new rat after my old one Harold Fairhair passed away. Pilgore has been dying to play with another rat. The breeder i went to is pretty decent too. I had to go sort of far away to get him too. He is only a baby, 3 months old. He is super affectionate. The breeder tamed them so...

    Hi! As some of you know I’m kind of new to rat parenthood. I know that Arthur wants to get out of his cage and run around a bit and explore and I’m wondering if any of you have suggestions of how to do this safely.

    Hello. I was hoping for some advice for my old girls. They are about two and a half years old now. Recently we had two of their sisters pass, and my single critternation seems too huge for just the two smol, old ladies. They also don't move around as much anymore. One of my babies in particular...

    Hey! Recently I’ve adopted three male rats from a woman who accidentally bred them. They are great boys, and I’ve dedicated a lot of time to researching good cage set ups. To say the least, they love their cage and have lots of fun exploring it which is great but I know you’re supposed to allow...
