    We have six rats, four in a family unit, and two babies solo in a smaller cage. Two of the four-unit have become hormonal and aggressive (the younger pair), which led to an injury on another rat (the older pair). As a result, after the vet checked the injured over today we booked the hormonal...

    Hi all, One of my rats, Pistol, had to be seperated from his cagemates due to his hormonally driven aggression. He was injuring and harassing them. His neuter is today, and I am wondering when I should reintroduce him to the other boys. They are littermates, and so they've been together since...

    Hi all, We had an incident where Percy got injured in a fight during free roam last night which resulted in a gash to the testicle. The vet needed to surgically repair the wound and whilst he was there he castrated too. I have the other two boys booked in as soon as possible, but it will be the...

    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...

    I live in the sarasota/osprey Florida area. I'm planning on getting 3 male rats from a breeder. I've checked that website that gives you a list of breeders in your state. I've been looking through those and narrowed them down to 2. I found one that sells neutered boys for 40 each. The rats look...

    So I was playing with Juniper a few minutes ago and out of nowhere he bit me and now he keeps biting me. I have created other posts like this and I tried reintroducing the days like someone told me to do but that didn’t help. And now he is biting me and fighting me?? I am going to call the vets...

    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, first time rat owner with 2 males that i have had for 5 months now. The bigger male is a biter that has bit since the day i bought them (they were bought as babies from a pet shop). I noticed from the day i got him he has never been interested in human interaction compared to his cage mate...

    Hey there, My boyfriend and I recently adopted what we thought were two male rats, only to find out that we had a female and a male. I can't tell how old they are, but my best guess is maybe 5-8 weeks old. We separated them as soon as we figured it out (about a week after having them) so we're...
