    Currently, I have a four month old female rat and I have been thinking about getting another female rat. In the past, the only pair of rats I owned were sisters that had lived together since birth. I am not sure if it is wise to bring home a "stranger" rat to my little friend. At this point I...

  6. Snakes
    I have a 44 gallon viv and I'm not sure what I'd like to put in it, I've only considered putting a snake in it now. By no means is the viv. ready to be inhabited, so I have plenty of time to research what ever species may be suggested. I'm looking for a smaller breed, as I would rather not have...

    My dad doesn't like having pets in the house; it's alright with him if they're outside. (ex. my dog and cat, my only 2 pets). What he doesn't like, though, is if there is a domesticated animal in the house. How freaky is that?!?!?! My mom doesn't mind having small pets in the house (rodents...

    Okay so around my area, loads of people buy rats. When we got Figaro we were on a dumbo waiting list for a while! And you can never find anything weird like hairless. Everyone wants them there are huge waiting lists, but you can't get them. I wouldn't have Boris, except his hernia made him...

    Few days ago BBC TV London had a segment dealing with the increased rat population in London. In respect of vermin. They also showed the other side of rats. A keeper had three female rats, who were rather impressive and well behaved. Domesticated rats , as pets, sure got a boost on this...

    What are your favorite rat and/or mouse websites and why? Like in the hamster/gerbil forum I'm looking to compile a list to make another sticky :). I could probably find a bunch of sites myself but I don't personally keep rats or fancy mice (just spinies) so I figured I should ask you guys ;).
