Just need to post here so I can ask a few questions about getting a rat (plan on two females). Just curious of a "rat starter kit." Basically a list of everything I'll need. The only thing I know is that I'm going to try Yesterdays News first for bedding. Other than the bedding, tank, and water, what are your suggestions for food, toys, and anything else you can think of?

Hello! Welcome to the forum!

I'm not trying to jump on you, but glass tanks aren't appropriate for rats. They need plenty of ventilation and a tank can cause ammonia build up, and in the end can cause a lot of health issues for your rats. I'm saying this because when I first got rats my family had made the mistake and gotten a tank for our rats. We quickly found out that tanks are really bad for them.

I don't know where you are, but assuming you're from the US, you can try Martin's cages, Critter Nation... and well there's lots of brands try watching this video to find more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pTVvvBjfr0

Toys and cage items you can actually make yourself! You can check out here for some ideas: http://www.dapper.com.au/toys.htm
