    He's the littlest rat I've ever owned. He seems like a really brave boy, doesn't startle too badly, doesn't try to crazily try to run from me..He's more socialized then Remmy was. He climbed into my bra to lay, actually. :rolleyes: :hehe: I have questions! 1) Remmy grabbed him and tried to...

    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...
