    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...

I have a single critter nation and have currently been using a cement mixing tub and just sawing down a bit on the sides to make it fit but these keep getting chewed up and then bedding spills onto my floor in the middle of...

    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...

    Two days ago, I found out that Martin's Cages is no longer selling directly to the public, and that they will only be selling some of their prefabbed cages via Chewy. Which was sad because I wanted to custom order a cage from them (I just purchased an R-690 from them about 3 months ago). So...
