    So lately I bought him some new toys for him and he kinda destroyed them so I started fixing them with a super glue and I wonder if I can put them back to his cage? If it isn't harmful for him or anything like that

    This happened a few weeks ago, to last night, and again tonight.. Chongus (my female rat) jumps violently around the cage as if something spooked the life out of her. I have to get up and speak to her for her to calm down. I picked her up thinking she was wanting to play and she did not move...

    Over the past few months I’ve noticed scabs on my rats belly, Dash, and thought maybe it was barbering from his buddy, but they never heal and just get worse. I even separated them but it has nothing to do with Bolt injuring Dash. The scabs have mainly been above his legs and he also has one...

    Hello. A little while ago, I wrote about my rat Venus having a pituitary tumor. We took her to the vet but the day after getting back from the vet, my other rat, Dex, started breathing weirdly. Her breathing was raspy and something was clearly wrong. I believe this was on Monday. I'm trying to...

    My oldest rat is from a pet shop and so was her sister, her sister had a massive tumour on her lower stomach and later died of a brain tumour, so I know that they have bad genetics most likely because of how they were bred. The oldest that is still alive has had a respiratory issue ever since I...

    Hi. I went on a walk with my dog and saw a little carrier. A cop pulled over because the women who's house the rats were by reported (nice little lady) I stopped and told the cop if they need a place to stay I sure as heck have one!

    So, my rats have always had a wheel, even when they were with their breeders. They have recently stopped using their wheel. I thought it was probably because it was too small dispite being appropriate for their age and size when babies, so I aptly bought new one as soon as they outgrew it to...

    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...
