  1. Rats Nesting All Food

    Rat Behavior
    Hello! This is my first time visiting this site and also posting so forgive me if I’m unfamiliar with how this works. I was hoping to get some advice. My rats, two girls- sunny and bean, ran out of their favorite food maybe a month ago. I have a big bag of backup food left over from before I...

  3. Biting....but different!

    Rat Behavior
    Hello all, I'm new to this forum and I'm feeling sad for my co-owned ratty 'Miso'. She was not a rescue animal, she came with her 'sister' 'Tofu' from the same place but as they have a noticeable size difference I believe they are from separate litters. Miso is quite large so she's definitely...
  4. Rats CONSTANTLY hiding.

    Rat Behavior
    I've had my rats for a month now, they're about 3-4 months old. They have a relatively large cage for just two of them, 2 different floors with toys and a wheel. For the first two weeks, they hid in a little box with an old tshirt of mine for them to sleep in. They barely ever came out of it...

  6. Low-Maintenance Pets, not No-Maintenance pets!

    Blog
    I have seen many posts and had many questions debating whether rats are low maintenance pets or not. When people ask me if rats are low maintenance, I will tell them YES! Rats are lovely low maintenance pets. I would like to distinguish the difference however between a low maintenance pet and a...

  10. Update:

    Blog
    FINALLY. I've found myself and my soon to be ratties a cage for them. It's very large I'd say, the spacing very good...surprisingly. They cannot escape unless I choose to let them out. I have to buy a giant wheel for them to run on and little pet igloos. I am nervous about whenever I bring them...

    Blog
    So I have had my two male rats ,fro do and Sam for almost two months now. Recently I have been petting Sam around the neck area and have noticed a few scabs. They are all over his back neck and now a few on his ears. I've tried cutting their nails but that doesn't seem to help. What else can I do??
  13. I need some advice

    Blog
    Hello, all. This is my first blog entry on here. I have had rats before, in the past. I was wondering if anyone knew if it was sensible to have rats with an asthmatic in the house? If it is alright, do I keep boys or girls? This is only because my best friend, whom I live with is an asthmatic...
  14. Apology to members

    Blog
    I'm sorry for posting about colors I didn't realize it's against the rules. Can someone please let me know if there is a place I can find out, I googled multiple times and all the shades are different, I'm so confused. It's not for breeding purposes. I think I have enough, all 7 of them. All...

    Blog
    So I have had recent drama with 3 rats dying in a matter of 2 weeks and had no clue where to get my new rat at. The pet store near me basically murdered my one rat that died the night I got her. She was taken from her mother too early and had serious health problems like throwing up any food I...

    Densil is the smaller rat. He loves cuddles, sleeping, and rasberries. He doesn't like Wessie the cat! Doughnut is the dominant of the pair. He loves running around, and eating yoghurt drops during training sessions!
  18. Freaking Out

    Blog
    So things are going a bit downhill for me. I'm sinking deeper into debt and I'm really nervous that things aren't going to work out for me. I have a job but everything I make these first few months is going towards paying off these debts. Looks like I won't be able to move out when I had...

  20. Oh no she didn't!

    Blog
    So, I went into Petco today, to peruse the food bowl section while I waited for a friend. Yes, yes. I know. Petco is bad and evil, and we hate them... However, as I live in the Middle of Nowhere, I have few options in the way of stores that sell critter type things. Plus, I have to buy my dog...
