It doesn’t seem to bother him because I was feeling around and he wasn’t squeaking or squirming. My...

    Okie dokie, Does anyone here have "A Thing" they do with their rats? Like something you always do with your little beans that you don't think others do. For example: Everytime I get a drink out of my water bottle, I will fill up the cap with water and let them drink some water out of the cap...

    Did I make a mistake getting our pet rats from a pet store instead of a breeder? I spend so much time a day talking to them, trying to get them to come near me using treats, using the spoon with baby food and yet they are still terrified of us? We can't touch them, they freak and go into...

    I just posted about my rat Quinn having a tumor, but so does my rat Chonk. Chonk is a female that I estimate to be about 1 1/2, but I got her from the SPCA so the age is estimated.
