This is a picture of Torgo. He is not dead, though not for any effort on HIS part.




I feel like that after eating at a Chinese buffet.

I had just finished cleaning out his cage and filled his digging box with dirt. He was just laying there while Melissa did all the work creating burrow. I love dirt and grass for bedding, it eliminates odor, give them something to dig in, but tend to be messy on the carpet.

Cute picture! Male rats are extremely lazy. My boys do that alot! Though when their young, males and females are both energetic.

HA I woulda thought he was dead, but that pic's so silly. When Shoki's in the mood for it i give him a lil scratch under his chin and after a few min he falls asleep...i do it long enough and his mouth goes open and he rolls on his side....looks like he playing dead.

i have girls that will do that. and one of my girls is more a cuddle bug then one of my boys. i agree that as a general rule boys are lazier then girls but there is always the exception.

and i LOVE that picture!

but i have to ask, you use the dirt as litter? i've never heard of that before. how much do you put in? how effective is it at odor control and absorption compared to other methods you've used? how often do you change it out? what type of dirt and of course where do you get it? i'm sorry for the bombardment of questions its just i've never heard of this done before and i'm always on the look out for better alternatives.

yes, i had heard of digging boxes but i had gotten the impression that njal was using it was a litter. i've talked to her since and she uses it as a litter box rather then a full covering of the bottom tray but still as litter. its the litter aspect that caught my interest. and i've got to say, her logic make sense so i'm going to look into doing it myself.

the majority of members here are female and frankly, i can't see through the screen. for the most part the application of a gender descriptive is arbitrary.
