    I'm a teacher. I became enamored with a colleague's pet rat several years ago. Her name was Milly and although she was very old for a rat, I volunteered to take her to have it removed when she got a large mammary tumor. I'll never forget what my current vet said, "I can do it, I've never done...
  2. Meet My Rat
    Hi Everyone! I’m a new rat owner, and this is my beautiful girl, Mercy💫 I bought her from a pet store nearby, not knowing what can go on in those sorts of establishments, and she definitely was not receiving as much love as she is now. She has some cage aggression and is a little iffy with my...

    "Maisie" is a female hairless Rat up for adoption due to allergies. I've had her about 2 months, but need to find her a new home.

    I brought home two girls last week, and they are doing great! However, I want to make sure that one of them is for sure a female. I know a good sign is…well..a lack of huge balls. And the females have nipples of course. Rosie lacks the testicles, but she also seems to lack nipples? Maybe it’s...
  7. Rat Behavior
    Hi all, I posted a short while ago asking for help with what I thought was an aggressive rat, Trudy. Unfortunately, the situation is no better. After 3.5 months of gentle talking, offering treats, seeing if she'll learn and take confidence from her sister and lastly, forced socialisation she is...
  8. Rat Behavior
    Hi all! When I adopted my two 7-month-old sisters the smaller but more confident Juniper was in charge. However, over the past 1-2 weeks, the hierarchy has changed and there have been "squabbles"... Some rather serious ones. Screeching, rat ball, running away and bits of fur being left behind...
  9. Rat Behavior
    Hi all, I adopted two 6-month-old sisters from a lady needing to rehome (time constraints). They came from a group with 3 other older females and was told they are the result of a friends oops litter. A day or two after I got them back, they both bit me fairly badly while I was tidying up the...

    My rat Goblin is 2 and a half years old, I was playing with her and her sister when i realized i kept getting a little bit of blood on my hands. I didnt notice it was hers until I picked her up and looked and her vagina area was all bloody. I put her back in the cage and washed my hands and when...

    Please don’t judge. Two weeks ago I adopted two female rats that are 8 weeks old. I had done a lot of research prior to this about how social and cuddly and playful theyre supposed to be, they’re diet, likes and dislikes… When I got my two babies I was really excited and completely fell in love...
  13. General Rat Topics
    Hi! I had a male rat who unfortunately passed away in December. We had the best bond as I rehomed him but he lived by himself. I have just bought a new little female, had her home 4 days and she still isn't the most sociable. I got her from pets at home and she was the only one left. They say...
