    Hi all! I am new here and looking forward to talking about rats with all of you (especially my sweet little boy Arthur). I am new-ish to having a rat buddy. When I was a teenager I had rats but my mom was severely allergic to them so I haven’t had them again until now. I am so happy to have him...

    Hello! I have a 2 year old Rex rat, he is healthy and active. His brother died not too long ago and I plan to bring in some new company for him. I searched and I think it would be best to bring in 2 rats rather than one, or what do you think? I was gonna get maybe a rat around the same age but I...

    I recently had a rat die, and I am now left with a single rat. He is a aggressive to humans, but fine with other rats. The rats we would be introducing are two 1 year old rats, and our current boy is 1.5-2. Any tips on how to introduce them, and how to make out new boys feel welcome. Thanks for...

    One of my rats (Jasper) just died Friday, and I am wondering what to do with his brother Cookie Dough. For some background, Cookie is in perfect health and around 1.5 years old, and has some aggression issues to humans, though he is fine with other rats. I don’t know when or even if I should get...

    Hi all! New rat owner here. My boyfriend and I got our three girls last Friday. They are about 12 weeks old and very sweet! two of them are a lot more interested in us than the third, but still won’t let us really pet them. They will sniff and climb on our hands, but that’s about it. I see a lot...

    Hi! So I just bought my rat Remi last week. I have tried to socialize with her but every time I try she just bites my fingers instead of the food. I have a big latched door and when I go to open it she climbs up it and bites me. I can’t even open it without her trying to bite and/or escape. I...

    Hello! Two weeks ago, I adopted a third rat, Himbus, as a new buddy for my current boys Gobbles and Scrumps. Himbus was fine when I first met him and I thought it was him being cuddly (my boys are very friendly and will try to get on the shoulders of bre people they meet) when the lady I got him...

    Hi! I had a male rat who unfortunately passed away in December. We had the best bond as I rehomed him but he lived by himself. I have just bought a new little female, had her home 4 days and she still isn't the most sociable. I got her from pets at home and she was the only one left. They say...

    Hi! So I've been a rat owner for close to 3 years. I've had a few rats here and there, but at the moment I have two (now three!) I have a hairless rat (maybe 9-10 months? Store didn't tell me how old he was.) and a regular fancy rat from Petco (a couple months older) They've lived together for...

    I adopted two rats from the shelter 6 months ago, unfortunately one of them had underlying chronic respiratory issues that he did not show symptoms for right away, ultimately he ended up passing leaving his cage mate by himself and he is a rat that prefers other rats over people. I was able to...

    New rat mum -advice appreciated! <3 Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could offer any advice. I got 3 baby girls around two weeks ago (currently approx 8 weeks) and one of them has began sneezing non stop for the last day or two. I have been pretty hard into guinea pigs for the last 4-5 years...

    Hi! My name is Kyra, also known as Therian Territory, and since a couple of weeks ago, my girlfriend and I decided to get 2 rats! After a little search, it turned out one of the ratteries in the neighborhood had 2 female rats for adoption with a little haste due to personal reasons (apparently...

    So my lovely boy Mikey really doesn’t like to chew. I have bought him many varieties of chew toys but so far he isn’t interested in them at all. He’s my first rat so I don’t know if this is a common problem or if there is some sort of super chew toy that all ratties love, lol. I just got back...

    Hi! Just brought home three new rats, about a month old according to where we got them from, and supposedly all male. However, one I am not so sure. The others have already developed testes but one hasn’t. I don’t think the spacing between urethra and anus is wide enough to indicate a female...

    Hello. I'm new here, but just a question. Just today I got a rat. She's a large brown/white spotted rat, and her name is Fritzie. And yes, I know they say not to have just one rat, but the pet store I got her at said she was an oddball and didn't do well with other rats, but she is friendly with...

    Picking up two baby female rats in a few weeks but I have limited space for a cage. I hear that the 690 is too narrow which makes me nervous because I don’t want to have to upgrade in the future. The space I have for the cage has room for more depth but Martin’s cages that are 18” deep are also...
