And $100 later, I was right he has a URI. So he's now quarantined from Zeppelin and Elton. I feel bad so I'm sitting in the bathroom with him giving him free time and the silly rat won't get off my shoulder. The good news is I'm getting lots of kisses and love, which is nice cuz I've only had him for three weeks. I hope he'll be okay.

It's not necessary to quarantine a rat with a URI. Most rats are born with Myco and irritations cause it to flair up - therefore there is no need to keep him separated, it will just stress him and stress is not good for sick rats.
I just heard that from a breeder friend of mine!!!

Thanks for the info!!

aw, poor Alice. He'll be good as new soon. Glad you took him in. I think the best thing any pet owner can do is learn what is 'normal' for their animal. Then when we see things that are not normal, we can make a note and keep an eye on them.
