  2. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Alright, I am not any where near knowing enough about mice. Before now, all I knew was that there were little field mice running all over our property that my dogs love to chase. This scholarphip is VERY important to me. I'm considered to be pretty smart, but I'm not a genius and I'm going to...

  4. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Recently this has come up and trying to be polite I didn't want to take over someone else's thread to discuss it. Funny thing is I never thought this would come up on a forum of mice\rat lovers but hey stranger things have happened! First off let me say I am not in ANY way against snakes or...

  6. Rabbit Discussion
    First, I want to make sure everyone knows I'd rather keep my bunnies indoors. But alas, there are reasons which might mean I'll be forced to turn them into outdoor bunnies. My parents hate animals. (I don't know why, don't ask me!) My mom dislikes the smell of small animals, and she has been...

  9. Animal Welfare & Legal Issues
    I am trying to rally support for laws in Illinois to be changed. My brother got us a pet skunk for a wedding gift. What a strange thing, huh? If you didn't know, pen raised (not wild) domestic skunks actually make wonderful house pets. However, after contacting my vet to get all of the...
  10. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    I hope that this is in the right section of the forum. I'm wondering, which would be a better pet for me, a dwarf hamster (or 2) or a rat? I want to get one as soon as my grandparents move out of our house, within a year or so. Here are some things to help your answers. 1. I'm still in high...
  11. Mouse & Rat Discussion

  14. Degu Discussion
    Hi all, it's been a while since I've posted. It's been busy. At any rate, there's only one store nearby where I can get my goos the right food (without molasses), and I can get it in bulk at a good price. So I headed over there and picked up a few things. As I was checking out, the girl asked...
