Ok this is really weird but my new baby rat has normal solid poos in hids cage but then when I take him out he seems to get diarrhea....anyone know what is going on...this has been happening since I got him(about 9 days ago)
if they are really squishy smelly poops outside the cage, we call them fear poops. Your rat is frightened. Work with him inside the cage til he gets used to you a bit more. Go slow, be patient and he will settle down. You and your new home are big and scary.
