Hello just joined this site. I have been taking care of my two rats Squeaks and Echo for a little over a year now. Recently my rat Echo has developed something in her eye that resembles cataracts. But I have no idea what exactly it is can any one tell me from this pic? Her other eye is fine looking.

It could possibly be a corneal ulcer, I would take her to the vet so that it can be treated. Untreated corneal ulcers can heal on their own, however this does risk blindness in the affected eye and can leave a scar. One of my hairless rats, Niffler, is blind in her left eye and has a scar in it from a suspected corneal ulcer that healed before I got her.
