    For all of you who have read my last thread, Cocoa and Gracie's New Cage, you'll understand what I mean when I say I think the girls were lonely. So today we decided to start rat hunting. Honestly, I thought it would take awhile to find two perfect girls, but we found.....wait for...

    First off I want to say that I haven't posted here in a long time. I don't think I have posted within the last year but I used to be a regular. I have gone on to other forums but now I come back with some disgust...not for the forums themselves but members. If this is in the wrong section I...

    Hey, I'm very new here, so I'm sorry if this question sounds stupid. My boyfriend and I are trying to build a 'grotto' style cage for our two boys. We have all the materials we need EXCEPT a waterproof seal for the shelves. I'd expect that most of the sealants are poisonous for ratties, so what...

    I've had rats before as a teen years ago and I used a commercial rabbit cage. Now, I'm on the list for ratlings that should be weaned the last week of March. I've already got a growing pile of rat toys and cage stuff. I'm planning to build the cage the weekend before I go to get them and a...

    I'm getting a new cage tomorrow. I can't stand having my girls in a tank. Does anybody have any suggestions? I want a cage that has enough room for two females and definately isn't going to be difficult to clean. I really liked the martin's cages but I have heard that they are difficult to clean...

    Hello..more questions...=) I know it is horrible to have a rat in a glass cage...but my boyfriend won't let me get a regular cage with wires because we have a cat. He is afraid that the cats will reach in and get her or pull the latch open very easily. I know he is worried for the rats...

    I have been meaning to build a new rat grotto for my boys ever since I had to trash my old one. As luck would have it, someone was selling a nice one on craigslist and I bought it! Now I don't have to build one!! :D I picked it up and moved the boys in this weekend. I'm still working on...

    Is there any way for me to teach my girls how to run on the wheel or do I just need to let them hopefully figure it out for themselves? I did put them in the wheel, but they just jump out. They like to sleep underneath it, but I want them to actually use it.

    Hey everyone! I'm SO EXCITED! Remember my thread about my baby boy ratties? Well they're coming home TODAY! Their mama's foot got hurt, and the babies are just barely weaned. It's a bit sudden, but she needs the babies to go so Precious can rest. I think they're only 4 weeks old right now...

    So my mom has been telling me "No more rats after these ones pass on, okay?" for years. About 2 months after she says that she calls me up, "Ohhhh!! There's baby rats!!! I'm coming to get youuuu!!!" Well, a few months ago she said the magic words. Lo and behold she e-mailed a rat breeder she...

    This thread is just purely out of personal interests and I'm not stateing this is true, but I have read before that before earthquakes take place there is usually strange behavoir or unuasual behavoir in animals (maybe something your pet does not do or you have never seen your pets do before)...
  20. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Alright so it's now obvious as active as my girls are they need a bigger cage. Nothing immediately pending, they're doing fine for now. But I've spent the last three days scouring the internet for a larger cage and I am at a COMPLETE loss. Everything that's the appropriate size, has those wire...
