Hi guys,<br>I have a female rat that hoards like crazy... so crazy in fact, that her bowl will be empty minutes after it has been filled... She even hoards fresh foods that then start to go bad. I am sifting through her bedding every day digging out food and inevitably miss some of it, which then makes the bedding go sour far quicker than it should (and makes for unsanitary conditions)... she doesn't only hoard it all over, but she pees on it as well. :/ I use shredded aspen for bedding, so it is easy for her to hide food.<br><br>If any of your guys have used food hoppers or made your own, I would love pics of them. I have some hardware cloth lying around that I could use (1/2"). I'd appreciate your advice on this as I really do think it is unhealthy to hoard to the extent she does.. It also makes very difficult to tell how much they are actually eating.
