    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, 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...
