    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.

    Hi guys, as the title says, how do YOU teach your rats to be gentle and respectful yet confident and comfortable with your hands in the cage? I began trying to do in-cage things with my three boys when I got them, but they were so terrified I backed off and worked on just getting them to...

    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...

    I got my heart set on the Cozypet rat cage on amazon so would the medium option be suitable for 2-3 rats or would the larger option be better? I say 2-3 because ideally I would have 2 but I know 3 is better if one passes away, but I don’t know how well rats are with new littermates if...

I’ve always had hamsters, and know correct cage size/general husbandry on them, but I’m a total newbie with rats. What’s the correct cage size/ general husbandry I need? I want to be 100%...

    Hi, so... I need a cage. "Need" is a bit of an overstatement, I won't be able to own rats for another year or more, but I'm very determined to save money as early as possible to get a good cage right off the bat and other necessities. The thing is, I have some physical health issues which make...

    Hey! I started using that Home Depot cement mixing pan I'm sure you all know about as my new bottom pan recently. I had to trim some of the sides off in order to make it fit but I apparently cut off too much because my rats keep slipping inbetween the litter pan and cage. It's become their new...
