    I recently got a new rat. The last few days she has really warmed up to me and loves to sit in my jumper. But last night the cat came into my room and went up to her cage, my cat didn't do anything but the poor baby was frightened. Fast forward to this morning. I've given her her usual treat...

    Hi! Posted here a couple times before, im trying hard to get my two rats, Jasper and Gus Gus back together again. I had to separate them a couple months ago because they were aggressively fighting non stop. I got Jasper (the aggressor) neutered, he still tries to bite me so i’m hesitant to...

Roddy will sometimes not even finish his own food before taking Fishbones and becomes aggressive when he sees him eating. It got really bad when i gave them an egg to share, i noticed that roddy...

    I had three rat girls, and sadly one of them died two weeks ago:/ I usually keep their cage open all the time when I'm home, and they were often outside playing for hours. After she died the two others barley go out anymore, I'm not sure what to do?

    I am a potential future rat owner. Can someone check my list and see if I got everything? I think the litter is okay but I’ve been told other things. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3JGRIQJXRF55M?ref_=wl_share

    I got my first two female rats earlier this year, and their behavior is concerning me. They are constantly running around the cage and squeaking as they run. I don't know if they are biting each other or if they're simply playing. They also will box with each other. I don't know what to do and...

    I feel so terrible! My poor rattie had a huge lump that the doc said was cancer in his lymph node gland and we couldn’t remove it. So antibiotics and steroids were prescribed. After a few days it got a small black scab and started oozing, so I pushed some stinky puss out and cleaned the area...

There was a lot of drops, and I’m really concerned because I checked my rats and couldn’t seem to find any wounds. I saw a little bit of what...

    tldr; we got some babies to introduce to our adult boys and introductions are not going well. Advice? We are afraid of the big boys hurting the babies. We have had our two boys for over a year and decided that we needed to get some friends for when one of our older boys inevitably passes away...

    So I was interacting with one of my rats, Chunt, today, and she has this bad habit of grabbing onto my shirt and chewing holes if I let her. I heard that exaggerated kissing noises sound like an injured rat so I tried making one the next time she grabbed my shirt. I was hoping she would think...

    I have three boys and I got them from my uncle around a month ago. Their behavior has been normal, energetic, playful and they seemed overall healthy. A couple days ago when I was cleaning their cage (which I do once a week) I noticed there was blood all over the cage. I put them in my bathtub...

    Hello, my rat Dove is about a year and 7 months old. Recently it seems as though she’s peeing everywhere, without being able to control it. Is this normal for aging rats or should I be concerned? She’s my first old rat so I’m not sure what to do. also here’s a picture of her being cuddly.

    I have three rats, all girls. They have a large cage that I clean at least once a week. They never go without food or water, they have the correct bedding. Two of them are over 2½ years old, likely closer to 3, though i don't know for sure since they were rehomed and moved in with me around 4...
