    One of my girls passed away recently and I’m in need of some advice. I’ve read mixed responses online and would like to get some more opinions/answers. Is it beneficial to show my others their friend who has passed? Does it help or would it make the situation worse? Please share your thoughts!

    Hi, I'm Awsten. I just made this account because I need some help/advice. One of my babies, Knight, recently passed away. I'm fairly sure it was of a respiratory infection. I had two rats, and I don't want her sister, Otto, to be alone, but she's now middle aged-old, and I don't want to cause...

    So I recently lost my heart rat and since then I’ve been struggling to get the motivation to clean my rats out etc, I’ve been keeping on top of cleaning and free roaming because they shouldn’t suffer because I am, but I just feel like I’ve lost my passion for caring for them since losing...

    One of my rats has recently died, leaving me with her sister Moon (1 year old). I’m unsure what to do next. My original plan was to add two baby rats to the family, but I don’t know if she would prefer adult company/ an already established group. There are no adult rats available close by...

    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...

    My boy recently died, but now I don't know what to do with my other rattie. I'm giving him all the love and attention I can but I know that wont be enough. I'm not the same species as him and I cant give him the same affection a rat housemate can. I don't think ill be able to handle getting...

    I just had to put one of my sweethearts to sleep. Will the other rats mourn her/wonder what happened? Because they do seem to be making a lot of extra noise. Should I let them see the body so that they know what happened? What can I do to help them through their grieving process? RIP Aster June...

    I have a male pair of rats (2.5 years) but one of them has been aging more than than the other. He's doing really bad. I'm actually at the vet now with him and I don't have high hopes... I foresaw this and was preparing to get a new rat for weeks now but I can't find an older rat and...
  9. New Member Introductions
    Hi I'm just a funky lil guy and my rat is my best friend. I'm boring but I love to talk about my girls- but forewarning for my info dump, I talk about rat injury and death a bit (and uh malpractice, too) but I try not to be too graphic or sad. I got both of my lovely girls for $3 each as feeder...
  10. Rat Behavior
    Hello. I have been doing slow introductions with my new younger rats and my two adult boys. Today I felt confident enough to clean the cage and place them together as a group. I watched for 10 minutes and all was fine everyone was exploring and eating. Well when I came home from grocery shopping...
