    Today I let Tucker and Jeffrey free range in the bathroom. Since it's cold as Christmas outside, I cleaned their cage in the garden tub. It needed a good soaking so I got some dish detergent and filled the tub. The boys couldn't resist investigating to see what I was doing to /their/...
  2. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hi Everybody, I have a cage cleaning question. I have a cage that has four levels in it. There are plastic ramps and shelves that connect the levels. Would it be okay to clean the plastic parts with Clorox cleanups? I know they are great for sanitizing but could the residue harm my rats...

    Oh yes, the joy of cleaning time. How often do you guys clean your rat cages and how do you do it? I use vinegar and water, but for you guys that use bedding, do you change the bedding every week? The bedding that I have for my little guy was 30 bucks, which will last me ROUGHLY about 2 or 3...

    They went at those eggs. I cracked both of the eggs a little bit to get them started.. I had to show them that they don't eat the shell part, but then they got the hang of it.. pulling off the shell and dropping it and eatting the egg. Lily took the whole thing in her mouth and carried it...

    Hi, I'm going to be getting three domestic mice shortly to do a science project for a scholarship. Don't worry this isn't one of those awful laboratory things where the animals are horribly treated. No, I'm a pet lover too so they are going to be treated just as well as my three precious dogs...
  8. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Took her to the vet yesterday, who she charmed by the way. She is just so sweet. Since it is a pretty small set up we just took the whole cage and she ran in the wheel the whole way there, totally unphased. The vet said she thinks the little lumps are probably abcesses because of the scabbing...

    Hi everybody, my girlfriend is going to college, and she is looking for a new small friend. She's got her own house, so she can have any pet. Anyhow, she doesn't want any pet, she is looking for the "perfect" pet for her. She wants it to be, intelligent, rather small, sociable towards humans and...

    ...and my mom and I saw one of those SunSeed flower garden salad things for my goos. On the package it says "FOR RABBITS, GUINEA PIGS, CHINCHILLAS & DEGUS" The ingredients in it is Timothy Hay, Dehydrated Parsley Stems, Alfalfa Hay, Pine Cones, Calendula Marigolds, and Rose petals. When I saw...
  16. Degu Discussion
    One of my boys, Big Pete has always been very skittish. Even though he's the dominant male, he'll run and scream like a baby every time he sees me walk by his cage. It's quite humorous. Little Pete is much more personable. He'll come say hello and take treats. If Big Pete realizes there are...
  17. Degu Discussion
    I went to a small petstore near me and found that they had the Sunseed food for Chinchillas. Since I can't find and Degu or Guinea Pig food without sugar, I was wondering if it would be ok just to give them this. Also, what else would I be able to give them in addition to their normal food?:gab:

  19. Degu Discussion
    I'm having some problems with my Degus, but I'm not sure what to do. D: I have two, both are 1-2 years old. Jasper was my first, and I'm fairly certain he's male, but after getting my second Degu, it's hard to be sure. It goes like this. Jasper is my baby, and he's very sweet. But when my...
  20. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hi all! I bought my first mouse from the pet store about 2 weeks ago. I noticed she was a little fat looking about a week ago, and then I had someone take care of her for a few days and came back and her belly is SO FAT and it is streched at the bottom. She looks like every pregnant mouse...
