  1. Meet My Rat
    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. Fast forward later that night I was gone for 15 minutes at most and I came back to blood and scratches (they are both fine tiny scratches and turns...

    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. I've had them for about 7 months now but I noticed Pepper was much different. When ever they had free roam time she would rather be just...

    Hello! Last week I welcomed two little female rattles into my home! This is my first time ever owning rats, but I have owned many hamsters and a few mice. A coworker of mine was looking to rehome hers, and I said I would take them as she was going to return them to the pet store if I didn’t...

    Please don’t judge. Two weeks ago I adopted two female rats that are 8 weeks old. I had done a lot of research prior to this about how social and cuddly and playful theyre supposed to be, they’re diet, likes and dislikes… When I got my two babies I was really excited and completely fell in love...

Trying to follow the advice on my last post, I've been trying to hand tame my boys, and my more confident rat Nimbus has been climbing all over my hand and seemed really comfortable...

    TL: DR - rat is aggressive ONLY over food. Tried scatter feeding. Didn’t work. Tried two bowls on separate levels. Didn’t work. Today I found a gash on my sweet rat, should I separate them? They are currently snuggled together in their cage :( Hi all, so it’s gotten to the point where I can’t...

    I am a first time rat owner and got 2 rats just under a week ago from a pet shop. They both seemed fine at first but about 2 days ago one of them started sneezing. He seems to be sneezing pretty often now, both when he is in and out of the cage but mostly when he's moving around. He's completely...

I'll be doing a full cage clean today or tomorrow (depending on if my girls would like to go downstairs at some point so I could clean the upstairs) and I was wondering if I should/could switch the spot of their litter box? So the thing is that I initially thought that I would keep the...
