Hello, congrats on the new ratties. What is it on the tails? Like poop or have they been biting at them? Are there eyes, ears and nose all clear?

You may want to go ahead and just bathe them. It's really simple! You just run some lukewarm water in a sink, dunk them under gently, keeping their head above the water, lather them up with some baby shampoo and rinse them VERY WELL. I use a soft-bristle toothbrush (one of those cheap ones from the dollar store that come in 4-5 packs) to clean the tails of my rats because of the hairs.. Just wiping doesn't always get it perfectly clean.

Good luck with your girls!

congrats on your new ratties. Some rats do have darker tails which can make them look dirty. I use a soft face cloth/flannel soaked in warm water to wipe them.

Please post some pictures. We have just named our new girl pettle.

I would name them Tanwen (Fire in Welsh) and Xanthe (golden in Greek).
