    Hello all! I'm just curious to know what the colour of the babies would be if i bred my female brown-hooded female and my white male rat, who has red eyes. Here are some pics of my rats (: I'm not breeding, just curious. PS, that cage is not the cage they are in, that was to carry her back from...

    One of my wonderful friends who runs a rat rescue posted this on another forum and I thought it was something we should all read and be very aware of. I asked her for permission to cross-post.
  7. General Animal Discussion
    Ry wants a pet really badly. We're renting right now so we can't get a dog yet - not interested in a cat or rabbit (allergic). He had gerbils before but they're quite skittish. Is there anything that he could actually interact with?
  8. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I have been pondering the thought about breeding my rat Nicodemous, allthought I really have no clue what I'm doing, as far as I know is buy a female and let them go at it, but I know there's SO much more than that. I'm looking for advice on any and everything to do with breeding rats.. I.E...
  9. Vents and Rants
    Okay, I'm begenning to get very annoyed with pet breeders... People just want to breed, to get small cute kits... And then it's like "Oh, what harm can one litter do?" Well, if there's no idea behind the breeding, it can actually do a lot of harm... And if it's hard to get rid of the kids, it's...
  10. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hey all, needed some input on raising baby rats from the time they are born. Are baby rats that are handled from birth more friendly than your typical pet store rats? Every rat I've ever had or dealt with has been skittish for an extremely long time before it got used to me. Even then...they...

    Well my 11 year old daughter would like to buy a rodent. She has been thinking about it for a very long time now but she don't know what would be best for her. She wants something that she can cuddle and likes to play. My other daughter has a hamster but she is thinking that she may want...
  13. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Would it be okay to buy a rat at a pet store? I searched and searched for rat breeders in the area and couldn't find any. I live in maryland, and I searched PA WV and VA. I'm not sure whether I want boys or girls. Probably girls. When I was at petsmart they had 3 different kinds of...
  14. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hi there! I'm not really new to this board, but I haven't been on in ages, so in retrospect I guess I can still be considered a relative newbie. I've had rats before, but the experience was not a happy one for either party. I made the mistake of getting petstore rats, prior to discovering...
  15. The Water Cooler
    I took Jazzy, Ollie, and the three rats to the vet today. I just got back. I have all good news really. Jasmine's wounds have healed really well, the gray patches that I see are scars - not infection. Ollie doesn't have ringworm, he has feline acne (Kim you were right!!!) and its a lot easier to...
  16. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hello everyone! I've recently been looking to get a new pet, and my love of ferrets has evolved into a newfound interest in pet rats. I have not bought any yet, but are hoping to do so soon. In the meantime, I was hoping some of you veteran rat owners could answer a few questions for me...
