    Hi, We currently have two cages in one room (one with one male, and the other with two males), we are working on socialising the group but as the two males are very scared of handling/lash out at us so its a slow process. Would it be ok to let either group free roam around the entire room? We...

    Hi everyone! I've been trying to free roam my boys for the last couple of days to get them more used to me and all that in order to work on trust training. They'll crawl into my lap no problem, and they'll let me pet them as long as there is a liquid treat involved, after that they're totally...

    Hello, first of all please pardon my english, i have lost practice. I'm interesed in owning rats. Tho I've found myself stuck (in my research to start buying what they need) since I can´t find good info of plants (normally when i search there's mostly info of plants that they hate) to have that...

    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...

    Hey guys I’m having the worst time getting my rats to like me/trust me. They are so back and forth about if they trust me or not. But the real issue I want to talk about is free roaming. My girls HATE it. I built them a maze with treats, gave them a large area to scope out, and sat in there with...

    I'm new to rats, had my two girls for almost two months now and I really need to ask some questions! I try and let them out for at least an hour every day and I rent and share a bathroom so the only place they can have free time is in my room with me. this would be totally fine because I bought...

    Heyy again So as the title says.. I'm having some trouble with my new babies and the bonding just isn't going quite as well right now. I have no one else to blame than myself for that but still.. this is very upsetting. Please remember this is my first time having rats and these things are...
  8. Rat Homes
    It's like the size of a medium bedroom. It's a guest room actually. We can do pretty much anything except things that damage the walls, like nailing stuff up. (We are renting from my parents.) What should I do with this relatively large space? I'm so excited! I know all about rat proofing and...

    Hi, This might be an odd question but is it possible to give too much free roaming time for my rats? I got my babies about a week ago and they seem to really like more being outside the cage in my living room than in their cage. My appartment is so tiny that my living room is the place I spend...

    Is free roaming on my bed enough space, I have a twin but I'll have a full in the next few months. I've tried to let them on my floor but they get inside my dresser(which is filled with dust), they go underneath the bathroom door and get inside the bathroom cabinets and chew my sheets, and they...

    Hi- Last week I adopted three female rats from a wildlife center I volunteer at (they were rehomed because there were not any programs happening due to covid). They gave me the rats, cage, and food for free so all I had to buy was bedding and toys. I had been wanting rats for months beforehand...

    Hi everyone! Couldn’t find another thread similar to my question... Peach and Plum get free time with me nightly on my bed (with a blanky laid down and a pee pad for oops)...when Plum is out, I find she “pee sprinkles” everywhere. Peach doesn’t do it at all unless it’s a full pee. Is this...
