    I just rescued two male rats they were to be snake food but the snake refused to eat them (so they were in the cage with the snake for a period of time). They are about 4 months and 6 months. The larger one(6m) is more curious but very bite-y he doesn't seem to be scared because he'll willingly...

    Something is terribly wrong with my rat! He is a 2 year old male and this morning i found him pancaked in a corner breathing very heavily. He would periodically shuffle around the cage but it seemed like his hind legs were not moving. I checked his feet and they had lost color. He is refusing to...

    Can someone recommend a good medicine (s) for bad respiratory infections? All my boys have it (not as bad), one is very affected by it though. He runs around frantically, he feels like hes suffocating and I would hate it to shorten his life in any way. Baytril (enrofloxacin) doesn't seem to...

    I found a lump in my unaltered, male rat‘s throat who’s almost 1 year old. He did show some discomfort when examined it. It’s not giant but it’s about the size of a marble. He has gained a significant amount of weight in the past few weeks. He is staying on the lower level of their critter...

    Hi everyone! I have seven lovely male rats. I recently adopted one that had lost his friend in hope of him bonding with a pair of mine. That bonding was wildly unsuccessful as it has also been with my other two pairs. He's an old senior boy and I really would love for him to live out the rest of...

    This is one of my three sons, Jimothy, and he's a black variegated with top ears. His favorite foods are pasta, oats and cheerios, and it's canon that his humansona is just a parkour-obsessed kid that forgot he strapped a live-streaming go-pro to his head years ago. It'll be Jimothy and his best...

    I'm trying to bond with my pair of males, James and Stefan. I had to get them from a pet store because all the breeders in my state (3) had no rats avaliable, and there are no rescues in my state with rats avaliable. I think they were meant to be feeder rats. I love them to the moon and back...

    Hello I’m trying to rehome my 4 male rats as I cannot handle my allergies to them anymore, and I’ve been bitten recently by one of them quite severely and I can’t move past it as it has traumatised me. If anyone is interested just ask for my phone number and I’ll talk through in more detail why...

    Hello, Need some opinions regarding introduction of boys. Have 2 teenage rats (aged 13&14 weeks) and 1 new baby boy (8 weeks). I’ve done adult introductions before a few years ago and it was a really long process then. Have only put them side by side for a day but it seems like they’re...

    Hi all, I have 3 x 15 week old boys who are from the same litter and a reputable breeder and are starting to squabble a bit too hard for my liking... I have seen 2/3 puffing up and 2/3 wagging tails, they've all been on their hind legs boxing each other, sidling, peeping and squeaking. I've...
  11. Rat Behavior
    I had three rats, two dislike each other and fight, and one gets along with both brothers. Sadly, my boy who got along with both brothers passed away and the two who hate each other are now stuck with each other. Sometimes they are fine, but sometimes one will get in the other’s face and start a...

    Help! I just noticed a small ball near my rat’s thigh! It is hard but seems to be loose under the skin. It is near the surface and not very deep. You can’t see it currently so I have no pictures. It doesn’t seem to bother him because I was feeling around and he wasn’t squeaking or squirming. My...

    I have 6 boys that I rescued (These are my first rats) and they have been completely fine, one of the oldest rats (I believe he's 1.5 years) Suddenly became aggressive. He bit me which drew some blood. the first few times I put it down to just misidentify since he didn't show any signs of...

    We have to rats, one around 6/7 months and one around 5/6 months. Both so sweet, very cuddly, just total love bugs. Until yesterday…yesterday, the older one bit me for the first time. We were playing and I was wrestling/tickling him with my hands, nothing out of the norm, but all of a sudden he...

    Hi! So I am new here and I think this seems like a great place and I have already gotten some help for another question of mine so that is awesome! My boyfriend and I are planning on getting rats in the near future but one of our biggest questions that we can't find the answer to is if we...

    Hi there, my name is Emma and I’m a new rat owner. I know this may be a faux pas, but at this moment in time I only own one rat. He’s a young male named Vronsky. I got him in early November and until recently he’s been an amazing pet. After getting over his new environment, Vronsky has always...
