My rat is literally huge. Huge. She got big yesterday and idk if she is pregnant or developed a tumor. She was always real little and then suddenly she got super fat. I dot let my boys an girls interact and the only way she could be pregnant is if someone moved them around without telling me or if they had sex through the cage bars. I am panicking. What is going on?

She's not likely to have gotten pregnant through the bars, but she could be in labour if someone mixed your girls and boys. Sorry for multiple posts. Hard to link and do long posts on my phone!

If you let them play together then this is always a possibility. It is why you are NEVER recommended to let opposite intact genders near one another.

Oh!! My bad! Your comment said
"I dot let my boys an girls interact"
and I misread the dot as "do let" but I see you mean "dont let"

Then if she ballooned up like that then there is very likely to be a problem. Do you have any good vet near you?
How does the swelling feel? Hard or soft?

I called my vet but got her recording and idk what to do. I barely can afford that. I could never afford the ER vet. So now I'm totally stuck. I don't know what to do.
