My name is, you guessed it, Marali. Very creative username, huh? Anyways I've had 4 rats now over the past 2 years and I've had some serious problems with one rat in particular who technically isn't even mine. I joined to ask some serious advice but it's not that huge of an emergency so it can wait a little while. So yeah! I live on a small town in California a few hours from San Francisco and I've got one rat at the moment, Charlie, along with a dog, four, yes four, cats and a 13 year old brother who I think counts as an animal. So that about some up my basics ^_^ have a nice day everyone : )

Hey!
I was born just north of San Diego; I miss California sometimes.

Just out of curiosity what it the problem you are having with the rat?

Well ever since I got her she's been extremely violent, territorial, food possessive, and just not very nice to other rats. I took all needed steps to introduce her to others but she was still so violent towards other rats. She was fine with my cats, who actually like rats ^.^, and she's very kind to people, just not other rats. And in the 6 months I've had her my other 3 rats who were all fairly young like about a year and a half have died. I don't know if she had anything to do with their deaths but I don't want to take the risk of putting her with another rat so she's on a cage alone at the moment. I know violent rats can be rehabilitated but o don't think that's a challenge I can handle. But thing is I don't know if because of her violence if any rat sanctuaries or pet stores would take her :\ but yeah. For now she's fine living alone in the cage and my cats keep her company.

Approximately how old is she and for how long have you had her? I'm in Northern Cal., btw.
Hey ^_^ she didn't come with an age so I'd estimate maybe... a bit less than two years. I've had her for about 7 or 8 months.
