What Is The Best Bedding For A Pet Rat?

Posted by Big Rat on Campus on Dec 21, 2009 in Rat Answers

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.

What Causes Tumors In Rats And Whats The Best Way To Prevent Them From Occurring?

Posted by Big Rat on Campus on Dec 18, 2009 in Rat Answers

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 Is The Best Way To Introduce My New Pet Rats To My Home?

Posted by Big Rat on Campus on Dec 18, 2009 in Rat Answers

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!
