    Hi all! My two and a half year old rat, Jadzia, just recently fell ill with what I think is likely a respiratory infection.

When I brought them home, I played with them while my partner set up their cage (took a while— had to put construction fabric over it since the wire spacing was too large). Everything seemed really good— I’ve had four rats...

    Hey there. I’m new to this website but I need some advice. Can I safely keep a dying rat (he is bleeding out but as it is midnight I can’t take him to the vet) with his brother overnight in the cage? I think it would help comfort my rats, as Hu Li (my dying rat) seems to be stressed and can’t...

    My rat French is a male dumbo who just turning 5 months. I recently was forced to give him a bath because he'd gotten something sticky in his fur during play time (still don't know what it was).

    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...
