    Hello again! I know I have too many questions right now but.. yeah, I just need some extra help being a new rat mom šŸ˜… So the situation is that in two days I've had my babies for a week and they are not yet comfortable with me picking them up but I would soon have to do a full cage cleaning...

    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...

    Hey! I'm new here and I have been planning on getting rats and will sometime in the near future. I know that 1/2 inch (or 1.27cm) bar spacing is supposed to be fine in pretty much all cases, at least according to my research but I would like to hear it from other rat people too. So would 1/2...

    I'm interested in getting a couple of rats and I'm trying to find a good cage. I've been finding a lot of contradicting information tho :( the cage i want as a bar spacing of 7/8 of an inch, can rats squeeze through there? and if so, what are some other 2 tier cage options i can get for under $150

    Long story short, would it be healthy to house three rats in my cage? I've been told it's "bare minimum" so im hesitant to get more than two. But i would love three rats. Please let me know y'alls thoughts. I should have an image of the cage measurements attached.

    Hi, I'm looking for some advice on one of my rats. In September me and my rats moved into a new term-time house (I'm a university student). Where before their cage was in the living room, they now have a huge 3 storey rabbit cage in my bedroom between the two of them. I noticed quite soon...

    I've had several rats in my life with varied backgrounds, but I've never had a biter. I rescued 3 girls from a lady who had a few to many litter. She seems to be territorial over her cage and cage mates at times. For example I could be petting someone else and she'll come over to me and bite me...

    Hello everyone! I own three rats, two of which are newly adopted boys since Snoopie's past cagemate Pom pom died. Anyway; I'm looking to home more in the future. Is my cage large enough for more than three? I know they get aggressive if they are crowded in cages since they do like their space...
