  1. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    My Lyla is about to pop. I bought a 20 gallon aquarium. How do I create the perfect place for her to nest and have the babies? What bedding should I use (I know not care fresh, etc) and what should I be giving HER to use to make a nest? Any ideas, help, or tips would be amazing!

    Okay we really were not planning on acquiring any more ratties, at least for a while. We have two big brown-hooded dumbo girls in a huge ferret cage. We have our recovering hairless rescue, and for when he's recovered enough we have a male brown-hooded dumbo to put with him for company under...

    Hey guys... well, I have fallen completely in love with how sweet rats are. And after Sienna died the other day, I decided that I would go through a breeder to get a healthy rat. I did some googling and found what looks to be a decent breeder. She just had a litter and has accepted my...

Anyways, my decided that the cage I had for him was much too small (however I dont think it was ... it was 18x24x18) But my dad thought that the cage was too small for my rat...

    Does anyone know the difference between a regular rat and an ASF rat? I have just heard of these and am a bit curious. Is there a size difference? I have heard that the temprement is not the same, like they will bite before they calm down, and are very jumpy.

    I have a major problem with the newest girls. I got them two weeks ago, they had lice, which is being treated and I'm glad to report NO symptoms!! But the problem lies within their mouth. They chew everything!!! If it gets remotely close to the cage it is chewed. They have chewed everything...

    I was interested in how people kept their rats on anything other than shavings (tiles, towels, carpet, etc) I did a bit of looking, but couldn't find a site which detailed how to clean those, what to use, why to use, and such. I'd also love any sources or reccomendations regarding litter...

    Okay, so a friend of my friend's has rats, one of which gave birth and died shortly after. My friend has come to me, knowing I have rats, on what to tell his own friend about caring for orphaned rats. I haven't the slightest idea, and many of the sites on the web require special hydration...

    Hey everyone :) It's only a thought, I'm not completely sure about it yet, and I need to discuss it with my boyfriend and our flatmates. BUT, I'm thinking about adopting an elderly rat.
