    Hi, I’m a let rat owner of 2 beautiful girls, around 8 weeks old.

  2. Rat Behavior
    One of my rescue rats, Smidge, seems to be a bit more traumatized than his brother. I've had him for over a year now and we've built a good mutual understanding with each other and I'm able to accommodate his more antisocial and anxious needs no problem, to be honest he's a lot like me haha...
  3. General Rat Topics
    Hi, I’ve posted something similar in the past but just wanted everyone’s thoughts and personal experience really. We bought our first 2 rats just after Xmas last year (female, now 8 months old). I’ve been trying to get them to learn simple tricks as I read it’s stimulating for them, and also...

  7. Rat Behavior
    Hey, friends! I've got a problem. My rats like to nibble on me. It's mostly fingers, and it's usually completely harmless. If I reach out to pet them, they'll usually want to sniff me too, and sometimes they'll put their mouth over my finger, probably because I smell like food. Please note that...
  8. Rat Behavior
    So I have new rat babies I’ve had them nearly 2 weeks. And I’m struggling to stop them from biting so I can start stroking and holding. I recently just tried the spoon technique (make an eek when they bite it) and now I’m using soft foods so they’ll learn to lick instead of bite. They only seem...

    I bought two dumbos who were going to be sold as feeders from a local pet store. They are "small" rats and I wish I could have bought younger but there are no rat breeders in this state. I am trying to start trust training after leaving them be in their cage. I took Lucy out and she seemed...
