Pregnant Rat Help Please?!
I have two pet ratties, baught from a pet store, named Simba and Peter. They told me they were both males. I kept them in the same cage for a long time now.
Peter was extremely active and he suddenly started getting fat, or Atleast I thaught he was. It was only in the lower belly area so me and my parents started joking about him being pregnant. We checked a few websites that state differences between boy and girl rats and we found out he's a female. This means that she wasn't getting fat, she is pregnant. This is my first time having rats and I'm really unsure of what to do honestly.
My parents are really against the idea of keeping more than two cages to seporate makes and females and having more than 5 rats. If any one has any ideas on what to do, please help me!
