We went on vacation last week and just came back yesterday. I had a friend who loves rats taking care of them. He sent me a picture of them every day, which was really nice. But after he feed them and pet them the last day before we arrived back home my little Guys decided it would be fun to chew their water bottle (The plastic bottle part). And it started leaking, so for a full day they were without water, but the worst part was that there water was filled up right before, there was a (poopy) pool at the bottom of their cage, where their food was, so no food for a day either. It took forever to clean and their ramps are wood which makes it even worse for cleaning. Another problem was that their old water bottle broke only a few days before so I had to use a spare on vacation. I was without a bottle so they had to use a bowl until I finally found a bottle that fit. Just one silly rattie chewing his bottle led to a lot of work for their dad!
