Yes yes, I am posting AGAIN about my new ratties
But I can't help it, I am excited! So I got them. They seem to be pretty nice....kind of. I put my hand in their cage so they could sniff me and ended up getting bit. It was not super hard or anything but it still kind of hurt. I would say it was border line between bite and hard nibble. Every time I put my hand into the cage they nibble but sometimes they nibble too hard. :\ I have not held them or picked the up yet.
Well, I got the ratties for free! The lady ended up giving them to me because she said there was another woman going in to drop off 15 - 20 rats! Woowie!
ALSO, the rats have been itching a lot and I saw that one of them had a flea. UH OH...so they have fleas. How do I get rid of them? One of my dogs is super allergic to fleas and breaks out in hives if she gets bit, so I will have to be extra careful.
I need to move the rats into their new cage here at home but after that biting incident I am wondering how they will react whenever I pick them up. They seem pretty frightened of me right now. So I am wondering if I should just wait?
Well here are some pics of the cage that they were dropped off in:
(what they are in now)
And here is the cage that they are going to be moved into:
The cage that I am moving them in to used to be the hamster cage but I bought the hamster a new cage and I am giving that cage to the ratties.
Well any suggestions, opinions, thoughts, or anything would be helpful and appreciated
Wow, I have not owned rats in a long time
