    Sometimes Phineas and Shiloh like to hoard the food in the cage. Usually it's Shiloh and sometimes he can be a jerk about it, but it's never really caused any problems. Tonight he and Phineas both decided to hoard their lab blocks and each made a pile of them from the food bowl. When the bowl...

    Hank is so big and cute, but i'm worried about his health. I was able to look at his feet today, and saw that they looked like they had owies, probably from carrying so much weight. His coat is kind of dull looking, and he had some sores that I originally thought were from fighting with another...

    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...

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...

    Hey everyone. My hairless rescue rat has porphyrin and sneezing with swollen watery eyes, but he's not lethargic or wheezing. In case it's allergies I took everything out of his cage. I only put his igloo, lab blocks, water bottle, and some fresh fleece blankets back in. This morning he had no...

    Hi guys, I'm new to this forum. While playing with my pet female rat a little while ago I noticed that the tip of her tail was very flaky and scabby. She's not the type to sit still so I can't really vouch for any flakiness elsewhere but she does groom her forearms quite vigorously from time to...
