Hello everyone! I'm a new rat owner. I've ratsit before, but this is my first time with two of my own ratties. :3 I have one male and one female, they are Ruby and Sapphire. They are white with black hoods. :) Sapphire is adventurous and curious about everything, very friendly (she's the female). And Ruby is more shy, doesn't really let anyone hold him just yet, but I'm confident that I can gain his trust. They are both 8 months old still exploring their habitats. I'm excited to get to know them and make friends here! :3

Hey, welcome!

Your ratties are adorable, do you mind me asking if the little guy is neutered, you wouldn't want to end up with more rats than you bargained for! :)

He is not yet. For now I am housing the separately until I get him neutered, then the plan is to house them together. :)

Ah, fair enough. Neutered males make great companions for female rats! I've kept two separate mischiefs with a neutered male and several females and they've both worked out great. Don't worry about Ruby's shyness, some rats tend to be a little more wary but will still warm up to you when you bond with them. Good luck with your new additions. :)

More Texans! Hello fellow Texan! I'm not in Dallas, but I have a vet to recommend (or several if you're willing to travel a tad) if you wish. They do spays and neuters on rats for a very low price. Let me know if you want their info.

Oh, perfect! You're much closer to them than I am, lol. I have to drive an hour and 15 minutes to get there. Well worth it, though, at those prices.
