I was just wondering what colour pet rats teeth should be to be considered healthy, as I have only just really noticed my rats are orange =S. Mine is about a year and a half old now if that makes any difference =D Thanks!
Hey I am getting a pet rat soon and i want to no how much it would cost for everything food, water bottle, wood chips for the bottom of the cage, the Rat, the cage, running wheel and a run about ball.I already have bedding so please help me
My niece is moving in next month. She really wants to get a pet rat. Problem is I already have 2 cats. I just have a really bad feeling about this. Nothing may happen but still even the best pet owners can make mistakes,and I am afraid if I accidently left the rat cage open or if my niece wanted to play with the rat that the cats would try to kill it. I don’t want this to happen my niece has had enough tragedy and trauma in her life. Anyone have any suggestions as to how I can gently approach her about this, and voice my very real concerns?
I heard that spraying female rats can prevent tumors later in life. I have 2 rats that are 6 1/2 weeks. I also have 2 rats that are 3 month old rats (almost 4), and 3 rats that are 6+ month rats. I don’t know their age exactly, since they were bought at a pet store.
When I was growing up in the late seventies and early eighties, I had a pet hamster and gerbil,but I never heard of people actually owning rats as pets when did rats start becoming so popular as pets?
