  1. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hello, I have two female mice, I have had them a little over a month now I believe, and they are nearing the bottom of the bag of Kaytee fiesta mix food. I want to switch them OFF the Kaytee brand, to some type of block food and continue hand feeding fresh foods as well. My problem is that I...
  2. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Okay, so this thread is for people to post what they add to their rats diet to keep them happy and healthy. I know we all try hard, but sometimes, even me, get stuck for ideas as to what to add into their diet to make it more interesting, yet still balanced and healthy. Also, have you made any...

    Hank is so big and cute, but i'm worried about his health. I was able to look at his feet today, and saw that they looked like they had owies, probably from carrying so much weight. His coat is kind of dull looking, and he had some sores that I originally thought were from fighting with another...

    How long do rats usually live? I've read so many different things, I don't know which to believe.. So, I thought I'd ask all of you since you all seem to know what you're talking about. Thanks!

    My rabbit won't eat his pellets. He devours his hay and vegetables and his occational piece of fruit, but he just won't eat his pellets. Should I cut off his vegetables and then he might be hungry for his pellets?? I don't know what to do! :(
  10. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    so my mom, who is absolutely against me having rodents as pets, was telling me about a hairless rat who was abandoned at petco because he had several tumors. Basically he's free to someone who will take care of him. My mom said that in this case, she'd let me have him, because she knows he needs...
