    Rat Behavior
    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...
  2. Martin’s R-690 Cage Opinions

    Rat Homes
    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...

  4. very scared and skittish rat

    Rat Behavior
    Hey y'all! So I recently got a pet rat (Roquefort) and I'm a bit worried about her. She's always hiding in her little tent and only comes out to eat/drink water when the lights are out or when she thinks I'm not there. I decided to start taming her, and it was kind of a disaster. Every time I...

    This is mostly a copy/paste from my post in the Rainbow Bridge forum. My sweet little princess passed away a few days ago. She was an estimated two and a half years old, and I had only had her for two years (she was almost fully grown when I got her). Her picture will be below, but she was a...

  11. Week One - 5 Week old Enzo

    It's only been a week from March 17th 2012. That lovely St.Patrick's day is when I suckered my mom into letting me buy a rat again. (I've owned two male rats in the past) We dropped into a local petstore and they had a tank filled with little boys ready to go home. The store clerks eagerly let...
