    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?

    Hi there everyone! I'm the owner of 4 little princesses real cute based in France. Lately I've been thinking of creating a digging box for them to enrich their activities a bit more. But I'm still skeptical about the care of a dig box. Usually, simple dig box aren't used with CUC which makes...

    So I have 5 males in a huge lovely cage and I clean in quite alot. But could my males be attracting wild rats? I hate to say it but this thing is NOT domestic you can tell, and I think it may have tried to attack my boys, cause they broke out of the cage and were literally Hiding in the playpen...

    Hey! Recently I’ve adopted three male rats from a woman who accidentally bred them. They are great boys, and I’ve dedicated a lot of time to researching good cage set ups. To say the least, they love their cage and have lots of fun exploring it which is great but I know you’re supposed to allow...

    I got my heart set on the Cozypet rat cage on amazon so would the medium option be suitable for 2-3 rats or would the larger option be better? I say 2-3 because ideally I would have 2 but I know 3 is better if one passes away, but I don’t know how well rats are with new littermates if...

    Meet Cookie! She is ~1 ½ years old and is very friendly. I got her in Cincinati, OH. She know how to Come When Called and half knows Spin. She's very brave and even scared off my dog (through the bars) once. She'll also try to pull off the cats hair if she's near enough. She does pretty much...

    I am currently working on an idea of mine regarding pest rats. How do rats react to tobacco and the rest of the toxins in cigarettes? I would gladly like to know. Are they attracted to it, and does it affect their health short term?

    Yesterday I took home 2 rats from someone else. They did great on the way home both cuddled together in the carrier sniffing around really curious.

    I have 2 girls, Angel and Pepper. I got Pepper about a month after Angel because an accident happens with her old cage mate. Pepper and Angel get along fine.
