Well, I've had my rats for quite a while now and never had this problem occur... until now.
Unusually, Husky is the problem. He has always been the quietest and never caused any problem, very cuddly and sweet, however when I do/did pick him up he was quite shy and always pooped everywhere because he was scared. This problem does sometimes still props up every now and then so he is probably the rat that does not come out the most, so could he be chewing on things just to get attention?
I had to go out and get a new hammok today because Husky chewed of the other one and the others have been very miserable going two days without one to sleep in. When I put the new one in-which is not the same- it is a ferret hammock he tryed to do the same thing and chew it off again and it's even in a different place so thats not the problem. He chewed my phone charger wire in half (I do cover up everything thats wire, but he has his ways of getting places lol)
and I'm having to be very careful.
All the others dont do this and Husky is only 10 weeks old, are his teeth to long, do they need trimming?- I do get him out as much as I can and he always has free range time as much as the others so whats bought this on? I would not have thought his teeth were to long at his age and I dont want to have to keep replacing everything in their cage because of him, I do put loads of things in their cage for them to chew on, which they do and even give them a special diet once or twice a week that contains food which is very crunchy and solid to try and get their teeth down, so I'm not sure?
Thanks in advance!
