I just got a new rat, and i was wondering how long--if any--i should keep it confined. i've read up on it, and most people say about 2 weeks. Any input???
The only thing I would change, based on our experience of introducing our two ratties recently, is I would go straight to putting the cages side by side after quarantine... close enough that they can check each other out, but not too close that they can grab each other.VayeraGirl93 said:DonnaK, I've read up on how to introduce them. this is how i plan to do it...
-first, just let them see each other for a while from a bit of a distance (have a friend hold one)
-then maybe let them sniff each other a bit
-then put their cages next to each other while repeating the above every day
-then put them in a bathtub together
-then hope for the best!!
