    I don't know what to put in Molly's cage for flooring. She digs and chews everything so much. I have been using binder clips to make sure the towels are tightly secured to the coroplast but she still is able to rip up a spot and eat it. Then I cover the rip with cardboard and put the litter...

    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...
  4. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    We all say that rats are like little dogs, but today Hercules took the cake for me! He was sleeping on my bed, curled up on his side. I came in and he woke up and looked at me. I started petting his head, then I went to scritch his back/sides. He actually rolled over and exposed his belly...

  8. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    I have begun to notice that my dwarf baby ( will be one year on the 29th of december) has been running on his wheel. I began remembering how i would always hear my late hamster on her wheel at night and that I haven't heard him at all. So one night I did a test. I put a couple pieces of his...

    Hey all. Yesterday I became the happy owner of 2 six-week-old mice :D They are sisters and came from a pet shop because I couldn't find any local breeders, but it was a really nice shop. I've had hamsters and rats before but never mice, I just have a couple of questions I was wondering if...
  11. Degu Discussion
    I was wondering what sort of toys I should buy for my soon-to-be goos. Since there isn't any Degu toys, I didn't know if I should go with chin, rat, ferret, or some rabbit toys. Also, what do goos like to play with? I mean are they tunnelers like hamsters, or what? Do they like ferret hammocks...

    Recently my rabbits have been swarmed by slugs and snails, when I go in the morning there are about 20 all around my hutches.

  17. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    Hamsters are very territorial. It takes steps, and time, to let hamsters see, and get used to eachother. It doesn't matter if there babies, or even if they were in the cage together in the store, hamsters are hamsters. Cage to Cage First get some wire mesh/ protection inbetween a cage. Make...
