    Long time Rattie Mama, potential Guinea Pig adoptive Mama. I am debating adopting a pair of female guineas to house (in a separate cage) in the same room. I had heard that Guinea pigs will freak out, because the rats smell like predators. Any experience with this? Or other things that could...

    Is it normal for rats to eat their bedding? I mean I know females nest but this not a female who's moving or eating bedding. Pop is a male, 4-5 inches long from nose to butt, and he's been eating bedding lately? Should I be worried about him? I've only had him and his brother since Thursday...
