I have two pet rats, Salt and Pepper, (they’re black and white)
And I want to add A little variation to their diet to keep them interested in what they’re eating.
Any good suggestions??
And is it true that raw egg is good for their fur.
I saved a pet rat from becoming snake food, someone didn’t know the difference between a pet rat and a feeder. They said that the snake won’t eat anything if it smells like humans so they chopped the tip off his poor little tail.
Right now he’s in a small loaner cage which I plan to get him a bigger, better one, I look forward to spoiling him and making him feel welcomed in our family, I’m just unsure of the bedding. I’ve never owned a pet rat, just married a couple. Any helpful feedback I get would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks in advance.
Does anyone have any suggestions for fun ways to play with pet rats? Any chewable household found items? Or ideas for toys or homemade gyms?
And if possible, how do you play with pet rats on surfaces if you don’t want them to pee so much? Such as carpeted floors or beds?
I like to keep my big old rat in my pocket, and my rat likes to eat, and I like to leave alot of leftovers. What would be unhealthy to feed my rat, of my leftovers? And what is healthy for them?
Ha, rat is in my hood, silly rodent.

A few years ago when I was a freshmen in High School I had a siamese rat which got 2 tumors under her front legs and a large one on the side of her face. Now I’m in college and just yesterday I brought a female fancy rat (named Macie) which is about 3 months old.
What could I do to prevent Macie from getting tumors?
What causes tumors in rats?
I just got two pet rats, both male. I am just wanting to find out more information about rats, maybe even some fun sites. I’m really enjoying these guys, I didn’t know rats played like puppies!
I will be adopting three pet rats in a few days. I am adopting them from a couple who feel that they do not give the rats enough attention, but they are definitely hand tamed. Should I play with my rats as soon as I take them home or should I leave them alone for a while? If so, how long should I leave them alone? I know a move could be stressful and I want to alleviate the stress as much as possible!
I have two female rats, each about 4-5 months old. I’m looking to upgrade their cage to a larger size – what cages do you reccomend that are affordable, durable, easy to clean, and large enough for my rats?
