    My fancy rat (domesticated brown rat) named Harvey died last week. He developed pneumocystis carinii that caused pneumonia, probably due to his old age. Harvey was my companion, just like a dog or a cat is to some people, but no one -- except my best friend -- was sympathetic when he died...

    Hi everyone, I'm brand new to the site. A little pet bio on me: I've owned rats my whole life. Right now I have 8 of them living with me and my husband. I got 2 little girls from the pet store and one was pregnant so we ended up with 6 new girls and a new boy. The boy (Viserion) moved in with...

    Hello, I've just recently joined - I'm from the UK and am 'owned' by 1 cat and 3 rats. I've lived with both cats and rats for a very long time (cats almost all of my life, rats for the last ten years). In the past I've also kept mice and gerbils but I've found I simply can't live without...

    I know it's a long shot asking here, but it's worth a try. My eight rats need rehoming. I am moving into an apartment which, of course, takes no 'exotic' pets. I will be moving within a week, but I would rather see my babies go somewhere they'll be loved than to a pet store.. I would be...

    While I don't know much about keeping rats and mice as pets, I have been learning recently, and I must say I have a new attitude regarding these cute little creatures. I began reading your posts on this thread for two reasons: 1) Because there is basically nothing else happening anywhere else on...

    Long story short: the vet I chose to possibly do the espay--one of the highest rated rat vets in Chicagoland--got the flu and had to cancel our appointment last Monday. We rescheduled for tomorrow, and I just got a call that she's still sick and our appointment has now been pushed back until...

    I am just wanting to say hello, and that I will be mainly found in the rat forum, where I am already talking up a storm to myself about what I plan to do for the rats I am going to be getting - one next week, and 3 babies in 6 weeks. Name: Nattily Age: 23 From: Sheffield, South Yorkshire I...

    Hello, it's great to be making a post! This is going to be a diary of sorts of becoming a rat parent (again!), but this time, with lovable, squishable, bucks. The added feature being is that I will have a community of others who know and want the best for these amazing creatures, so you can help...

My ratties' cage door opens up into the play area so its easy to acces for them..however when I...

    I'm going to assume the answer is 'not unless said cagemate was sick,' but I feel I should make sure.. I haven't been on the forum much, but in the time I've been absent I've lost 3 of my 12 buddies. All were over 2 years old and healthy. No funny behavior or anything, just became little old...
