  1. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hey everyone. I'm a brand new mouse owner, but she's very shy. I've been trying to get her used to me by petting her with my finger while she's on her wheel. What else can I do to get her to butter up to me? Thanks. I wish I could take some pics, but my cameras' broken. :(
  2. Rabbit Discussion
    I just separated Leo and Oliva until they can be spayed and nuetered in a few months. Thanks for all the advice regarding that! We built another cube cage and they are side by side, each with two floors so they can smell and see each other. They also now take up what once was a huge master...

  4. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Okay, this is really only vaguely related to rats and mice but I like this forum best:D Anyway, lately pet stores have been really pissing me off.

  7. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I just adopted two female rats from someone in the next town over. He gave me little to no info on the girls, only telling me their names, and saying that there was a third rat living with them, but it died a few days before I adopted these girls. He had been feeding them a low-quality cat food...

    Hi everybody, my girlfriend is going to college, and she is looking for a new small friend. She's got her own house, so she can have any pet.

    Hey all. Yesterday I became the happy owner of 2 six-week-old mice :D They are sisters and came from a pet shop because I couldn't find any local breeders, but it was a really nice shop. I've had hamsters and rats before but never mice, I just have a couple of questions I was wondering if...
  13. Degu Discussion
    I was wondering what sort of toys I should buy for my soon-to-be goos. Since there isn't any Degu toys, I didn't know if I should go with chin, rat, ferret, or some rabbit toys. Also, what do goos like to play with? I mean are they tunnelers like hamsters, or what? Do they like ferret hammocks...

  18. Animal Welfare & Legal Issues
    Does anyone here know of a vet that will testify to the fact that peach wood is dangerous for chinchillas? Not the pit or the leaves, but the actual wood. Ware Mfg is producing products for chinchillas and other small animals containing peach wood, and I have heard that this is...

    I am so upset :(. Madison died a couple days ago. I haven't told anyone because I get really upset just thinking about it. I've had her for less then two months. Granted, she was a rescued adult of an unknown age. But I still feel awful. Especially since the hamster I had before her, Frodo, was...

They were in a crappy mall petstore in a small tank labelled "Free to anyone over 18". Apprently someone had dumped them there. Good thing they didn't end up being...
