I have two rats right now, the lady who sold them to me claimed they were rexes, but the only trait they have is slightly curly whiskers. They're both extremely friendly and love to sit on my shoulders when I'm around the house. Since I have long hair, they tend to burrow in it.

However, my champaign baby (Piper) has been seeming very lethargic recently. She has no discharge from her nose and eyes, and doesn't seem to be having problems breathing. However, when I have her out of her cage, she seems to curl up and sleep when left undisturbed.

Eleanor, her sister, has been acting fine - seems alert and curious, so I don't think it has anything to do with their environment or food.

I'm quite concerned.

How long have you had them? When I first got Pea and Carrot, Carrot used to sleep a lot, whilst Pea ran around exploring. When they got older they swapped around, and these days they both do both.
