  1. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I bought a pair of sister mice from a pet store not to long ago. I've never had mice before but have had gerbils and rats. I thought those two looked a little chubby but never having mice before..... Well, on Tuesday, I noticed that their nest box seemed to be squeaking. I have read that...

  4. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hi there, I need some help..? I got a pet mouse for my little boy form a pet store about a week ago - and I guess it got knocked up at the store. Now we have a whole lot of baby mice - Im not sure how many I sorta just peeked in and saw a squirming mass. I found them yesterday morning. The...
  5. Degu Discussion
    Hello, I have two degus, Diego and Penelope. They were bought as a "class pet" for my chemistry class, but I have 90% claim over them. ^_^ When I got Penelope she was pregnant with what I am assuming was her first...litter? (Is that what they're called for degus?) Anyway, about a month in she...
  6. Degu Discussion
    :degu: :degu: I just can't believe it. I didn't see what all the fuss was with all the "degu" talk and today I was in the pet store buying food for my little frogs when I saw these little adorable critters! They reminded me of little squirrels without the fluffy tails. My heart was instantly...
  7. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    She had them today. I am trying to not look at her very much and staying away from the cage. When I do look at her its from farther away. She does not seem to mind this. This is her first litter. She keeps putting some of the babies out of the next box and letting them fall to the floor. When I...

  10. Degu Discussion
    Hi me agian!! Can you tell I have a lot of questions! Okay, I'v read on a previos post that galvenized wire is really bad for goos, but I have just bought a cage of g. wire. Is there anything I can do to it, like spray it or something. I don't want to harm my soon-to-be goos.:confused: Thanks...
  11. Degu Discussion
    I'm having some problems with my Degus, but I'm not sure what to do. D: I have two, both are 1-2 years old. Jasper was my first, and I'm fairly certain he's male, but after getting my second Degu, it's hard to be sure. It goes like this. Jasper is my baby, and he's very sweet. But when my...
  12. Degu Discussion
    My 3 ladies arent building nests...is this normal? They are currently in a cage too small (it's the one they came with) and we are working on getting a larger one. Could this be the problem? I adopted them, one as an adult and her two youngins. If they werent given proper nesting material in...
  13. Rabbit Discussion
    I am glad now that I did not have Wilma sprayed at the same time. 1) I was not too sure the vet knew what he was doing 2) I suspected she may b pregnant.Dont know why but.I guess they werent as particular abt keeping the genders apart. This morning Wilma pulled feverishly to loosen someo f her...

  15. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    June 26, 07 I huddled in thye corner of my nest box, sleepless and upset. My owner had not held me all day, and i knew something was up! I went out of my cage and looked around Jessy's bedroom through the bars of my cage. There was the bed, neat and clean as always. there was the television...
  16. Degu Discussion
    My goos use a hammock, but refuse to use a sleeping box. I've put one in several times - they just pee on it though. :) Don't really know why... Don't think it's doing them any harm or anything, just wondering how hard and fast these rules all are, so - where do your degus sleep?
  17. Rabbit Discussion
    I didn't want to post about this until I felt a little more comfortable with his chances. I so hate to tell a horror story. Anyway, I was out at my rabbit breeder's place a month or so ago. Last fall she picked up a stock of show rabbit breeders. Well, almost all the does were completely...

    What kinds of wood are safe to use to build nest boxes? Would simple press board work?
  19. Rabbit Discussion
    Here are a few pictures of my up and coming boys. They are my show rabbits for the year and I think they are developing really nicely. The blue otter is Flash. He was born and raised here and is just a ham, the friendliest rabbit we have and also the fastest. It is either full speed ahead or...
  20. Lizards
    Before Christmas, our iguana started to get extremely restless. He was constantly trying to escape the cage (rubbing his face on the plexiglass trying to find a hole). It seemed to irritate his snout a bit but never any bleeding or anything like that. We constantly monitor the temperature and...
