    So I was at "Petcetera" yesterday and one of the guys who worked there was playing with the rats (a good thing!)...so of course I had to go over and see the ratties! I was handling them and talking to the guy (happy that he knows what he is talking about). Anyway ONE of the rats totally stood...

  4. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    Hi - I bought a pregnant teddy bear hamster (knowingly) from our local pet store. She had 13 babies 4 days later. They are now 7 weeks, and I had separated the males/females at 5 weeks. Mom is with the females. One of the females was a runt (significantly so) and it took forever for her to...
  5. Rabbit Discussion
    I'm using Carefresh litter right now, but I have a couple problems with it. First, it's not as good as I've found wood shavings like pine to be when absorbing odors. But I know pine is dangerous for bunnies because of the dust and fragrance oils, so I can't use it. But my house is very, very...
  6. Rabbit Discussion

  8. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I've had rats for years now, but they've always been the same size (all larges, my favorite!). I was down to one rat, named Ben. He's pretty big, and very friendly. I've been searching around for a good friend for him, but had trouble finding one I felt comfortable with. So today when I went to...

    Today I picked up degus from my local pet store. They are just finished weaning and already hand tame due to my friend who works there spending time with them. They are two girls (better be) as I don't want little ones. The wheel I made from a cake pan and a roller blade wheel is working...

    I just went onto petfinder.com and saw that my local humane society has I think three or four female mice. I was wanting to look at getting one from there cuz I want to get two females but I don't want to plane white mice I wanted two with different colors and that I could tell apart. I was...

  15. Degu Discussion
    I adopted my goos just a week ago, and they came with a teeny tiny cage. So, I'm in the process of finding a bigger one. My only problem is I'm having a hard time finding somthing without plastic, and made without galvenized wire. (also resonable prices) I've read that pets who chew should...

  17. Aquatic Discussion
    The main reason I wanted to put this post up is because I am not entirely sure if my girl actually has ich or not..but I am thinking it might be. I notice my girl had a big white looking spot on her head which I can't really tell if is ich or not since whenever she got close to me and I got a...
  18. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I've never owned a mouse before at all...and to be honest would just be a little afraid too for right now. Not really cuz I don't like them or that they scare me more so because we had a problem with wild mice getting into the house about a year ago and sadly the problem was so large that we had...

    This is Lucy, the red (or orange) rumped agouti. I recently got her from a local pet store, where she was brought in by a customer, nearly starved half to death. They started nursing her back to health and then I got her about a week later. She's still kind of thin, they're supposed to be...
