Grim seems diffrent... i just grabed my two lil guys... reaper is energetic as usual... but grim... he didnt want to be held at first... and when i was scratchin him behind the ears to calm him down, he was braxxing, but 1 of his eyes shut... and it happens to be the 1 that had the dried blood around it... he can open it though... what could be wrong? or is this just a new response to something he likes?

You should take Grim to a vet who treats small animals. I've had some problems like this before. Red discharge from the nose an eyes is never a good sign. The sooner you take your lil guy in the better. If it is a respiratory problem your vet will subscribe him to some antibiotics and within a week he will be back to normal :) Most rats baught from stores do have some kind of respiratory problem, thats why many rat owners buy from breeders. I never did, but I will one day!

Heres a site that has some info:

ty for that bit of info... now i have another problem... and this 1, i HAVE to go to the vet tommrow... reaper went after grim, just messin around, and i think grim cracked 1 of reapers ribs, but im not 100%... i have them apart atm, and reaper on my shoulder... he can still move his legs, arms, tail, his breathing is a lil fast... and he feels "loose", like a slinky almost...

Yeah...I know how you feel. I had a problem with my two boys when they were going through their "I’m the boss" stage. They tend to fight a lot and can be very territorial about stuff in their cage. I had to separate my two because Jay beat the you-know-what out of Bob and one night my BF woke me up and I guess Bob got him back and now I have a one eyed Jay. But today they are the best of friends, it just takes time. (This is ONE of the reasons why they were fixed, haha)

Joshu is always trying to shut down my computer, he always presses my shut down key on the keyboard XD I think he's trying to tell me to 'stop looking at this thing and go onto the couch to nap with me XD'
