I just recently signed up to this website because this is a question that I can’t ask google and it give me a direct answer, lol.

I have 5 ratties, with an Alpha female named Snips. One of our other rats is a 4 year old female name Eleven whom my siblings owned until my Mother passed her on to me due to allergies. Eleven is obviously way passed her prime, but she’s still up and moving around and is still lively.

Recently, I’ve noticed Snips has been giving Eleven special attention that she never used to. Grooming, cuddling, etc. Eleven isn’t really at the bottom of the pecking order, but Snips never bothered or gave her much attention till now. I understand that El’s time might be coming soon, so I was wondering if anybody knew if Alpha rats give old rats comfort when they’re about to pass.
