Hi everyone!
I have come from the catforum.
I dont have any rats, but have worked with them in the past and know a bit about them!
I have 5 cats, 3 rabbits and a dog.

Let's make this forum grow!

Which cat forum do you mean? hehe

I have three cats, three horses, two dogs (at my mums)
one rat (living with my boyfriend, his parents and myself)
All the gerbils are long gone but never forgotten! (lived with my dad and I) I had 32 of them!!!

HAve you ever had gerbils? How do you think they compare to ratties?

i dont know much about gerbils...i just know they are very hyper.

rats need a certain cage size to be happy. it turns out, though, that mice need a bigger space compared to their size than rats do, because they move around alot more. i assume gerbils would need a huge cage, since they move so fast and all the time. i think alot of people think that because gerbils are small, they can be in a very small cage, which doesnt seem right to me. but thats all guesswork!

yeah, gerbils love big cages but they also like a lot of little ones (rotastachk cages are great!)

The gerbils who where in smaller cages got more attention. Your right when you say they're hyper. Some of mine got inbred and they were MAD!!! But some were very lazy.

I wouldn't have guessed that about the mice.
Rats Rule though! hehe
