    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...

    Hi! I lost my beloved hamster a few months ago, and have been faced with an opportunity to rehome two rats! 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...

    I want to take my rats (3 boys) with me places, and not just for a little day trip. Every couple of weeks I go up north to my fiancé's cabin with his family, usually for around 3 days, 2 nights (leave midday first day, stay all next day, leave morning/midday third day), the drive is about an...

    I’ve had rats for around 11/2 to 2 years now and I keep educating myself on them more and more each day, at first the cage I had for them was utterly crap and I regret it so much but I have, in my eyes, improved a lot and I would just like some feedback on my cage and if I need to improve...

    Hello! So I was wondering if you guys would have any ideas on what to add to my rats' cage! I feel like some people have such full cages and mine is still.. evolving I'd say, I mean I'm really proud of it right now and I just cleaned it before these pictures (that's why it looks clean.. for a...

    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...

    Hi! My boys are due a deep cage clean but are currently on antibiotics due to a bit of wheezing and weird breathing noises so i want to make sure not to use any products that could make it any worse for them. I was looking into scent free dish cleaner (Ecover zero washing up liquid to be exact)...

    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...
