  3. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hi everyone. I have 4 mice. The oldest is mother of two of the others, and I think she's about 11 or 12 months old. Yesterday I noticed a lump on her side, around the 'armpit' area of her right front leg. It is about the size of a pea. It doesn't seem to hurt her and doesn't stop her running...

  9. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hi all. I got myself 2 female rats yesterday (Saturday) from a pet shop due to lack of breeders in my area and with it, bought a multi tier cage and many accessories. For some reason, they seem totally scared by the ground level! The ground level has a house with bedding, a tube and a sawdust...

    Okay, I posted last week that I thought that one or both of our girls that we rescued from a friend (not a friend after what I saw) may be pregnant. Lucy the PEW had been kept with her six week old off spring, and Genie our black berk had been kept with adult males in one big cage! Anyway...

    O.K. so I am not in any way putting down good reputable breeders or saying noone should ever breed. However It seems to me quite a few people over the past few months have been awfully hung up on breeding. I don't really get it. I think it's because the thought of having adorable little eepers...

    Okay, so my husband prefers female rats (I totally don't) and we've lost both of his females recently. So anyway, he fell in love with these two adult female rats, one PEW, and one black irish and brought them home. I must say I more or less approve, they're very sweet and cuddly for girlies...

    I just adopted two female rats from someone in the next town over. He gave me little to no info on the girls, only telling me their names, and saying that there was a third rat living with them, but it died a few days before I adopted these girls. He had been feeding them a low-quality cat food...
