    Hello, I'm new here and still trying to understand how this works. Anyhow, I registered to this community because I wanted to get some advice from long term rat owners because it seems like where I live, veterinarians don't know much about rats. The 12th of September I got two male rats from...

    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...

    Hi all. Tonight I added my new little boy into the big boy cage and everything seemed fine. Just now after about 3 hours of nothing the top dog Cheese decided to fight the new boy (as expected tbh). Everything was a normal fight in terms of pushing into corners and squeaking and trying to flip...

    I’d like some advice. I have 4 rats - Basil 1+ y/o, Charlie 1 y/o, Puff & Ash (littermates) 4 months. My oldest boy Basil has multiple bite wounds on his back from Puff.

    My rats have been fighting quite a bit lately, and while a lot of it seems like playfighting it’s gotten a lot more aggressive in the last couple of days. While I don’t think they’ve really injured each other yet, it’s obvious that most of their fighting isn’t harmless. I had to break up a...

Before they were only a bit aggressive toward each other when I took them out together. And about every night they would quarrel right before I go to sleep. I...

    I have 3 girls. Halley and Rosemary are about ten months old and Cam is about a year. None of them are related, all adopted from rescues; Halley I've had the longest, and I adopted Rosemary and Cam in December 2020 after Halley's sister didn't wake up from a spay. Cam is a chunky rat and weighs...

    Hey everyone! A few weeks ago I adopted two 12 week old baby boys to introduce to my pair of 9 month old boys. After quarantining the babies I introduced them using the carrier method over the space of a week, which went very smoothly with no major disputes. They are all together in the main...

    I've had two pet rats for about 4-5 months. They both are very friendly with each other. I was looking at buying them a new bigger cage and I came across an ad for one at a great price but they wanted to include 2 rats with the cage. I went ahead and bought the cage and rats thinking if they...

    Hello! My boys Atticus and Dewey are my very first rats and we’ve been having some problems lately. Unfortunately I got them from a pet store because I could not find a breeder anywhere near me. They seemed to get along fine at first and cuddled in their hammock and all. Then they started...

    My two dumbo female rats are 3 and four months old. They shared a cage at the pet store where I got them, and they've been together since I brought them home. Suddenly, they've started fighting a lot. It makes no sense! I just moved them to a much bigger cage! No one has been hurt, but there is...
