    I got this rat a week ago from my friend after his buddy ate something wrong. It's been a week and he was doing fine the first few days. In the last three days, he's stopped really walking around at all. He keeps getting red stuff around his eyes to the point he's needing a bath daily or his...

    I’ve had my rats for almost 2 months now, and they’re the first rats I’ve ever had (expect some other stuff before the main part of this) when I got them, I’d had a huge cage for them, but I’d overlooked how small they would be at their age (>3 months), and they could slip through the 1 inch...

    Hi everyone! I've been a new rat mom for about 2 weeks now and had some questions about my little boys. All-in-all I've tried to go very slow with having them warm up to me.

    I am a new rat owner that is using paper bedding. That is going to get a bit costly and a little impractical, so I was trying to come up with more cost effective ideas. Fleece sounds good because its soft on the rats feet and its washable but my rats like to dig and play which the paper bedding...
