    We have a lovely old boy who has now lost both his cage mates and now lives alone. We are not in a position to get more rats so we are desperately looking for a loving rat owner who could take him and give him some company to live out the rest of his days. It’s so sad to see him alone! He really...

    Hi everyone, I've got something you don't hear everyday that I need some help with, and fast. Trust me, this isn't your typical rat in the garden story and there is a reason why I'm on this forum. I need some help with a baby rat. I was in the back garden earlier and I noticed something by the...

    So one of my rats, Dixie, was acting very strange during playtime. When I first got her, she was very nervous and scared because she wasn’t socialized. The previous owner had her for a week before surrendering. This meant I had to do all of the socializing and after a few months she’s been...

    So I recently purchased 2 rats. I got them at a reptile expo, from 2 different breeders, so they did have to be introduced to each other. Since they were purchased at the same time, luckily I didn’t have the issue of one already “owning” the cage. I had them in a smaller cage when they were...

    Hi, I need some advice on my new pet rats. I've owned rats before, and I lost my last one last month, but I'm definitely not an expert on them. Today I decided I was ready to buy new rats as I love owning them and it doesn't feel right not having any around. I bought 3 that are 7 weeks old and 1...

    Hello! Help needed from experienced rat owners. We got our rats, Barry and Nigel, from PAH and been with them for over a month now. They were 12 weeks when we got them and very skittish for a while - now Nigel has turned out sweet, but Barry started to bite whenever we are close to him and drew...

    Hello! I'm a new rat owner and my rat is super scared of me. She mostly spends time in her den and when she's roaming around, she runs back to her den when she hears my voice. Ive been trying to feed her treats with my hands and just sitting by the cage, but so far she's only bitten me. I did...

    So I have three boys, my eldest is getting on a bit now (he’s over 2 years old). As expected he’s slowing down a bit, including with his grooming. I’m helping him as much as I can, he’s still happy and full of life but I’ve been giving him baths once a week to keep him clean. He doesn’t panic...

    Hi! I'm thinking of adopting/buying rats. I live in Edinburgh so I'm looking for something around. I don't want to buy them from pets at home or any other pet shop. I was checking a lot of breeders but everyone are far from here. Do you have any recommendations nearby? (I'm not sure for 100%...

    Hello everyone! I have an elderly guinea pig who lives in a custom-built cage which is raised about three feet above the ground (four feet if you include the c&c panels around the edge) I have also recently brought two young, female rats home. I rat-proofed my room and the new girls have...

    So my old boy dean has three little scabs going down his back (along his spine). I’ve checked him over for mites/fleas and he’s all clear. We’ve recently got two young males who do try to play fight with him a bit. They all get along great and it’s not aggressive and if they get carried away...

    Hey. My fancy rat had 11 babies. One baby sadly was a stillborn. The other ten are healthy except for one. The baby’s leg is purple and disfigured. I don’t know what to do. Someone please give me advice. I know it may die but I’m turning to forums for advice.

    Hey all, I have had a couple of little ratties about a month now and they’re both settled and playful. However, one has started nipping me and it’s getting harder and harder (never drawn blood). She never bites my hand, she’s very affectionate and licks my hand loads, but she’ll bite me...
