    Hey rat lovers:D as my girls love to chew absolutely anything they can get their teeth into:rolleyes: I decided to make them a Boredom Buster.
    All I did was thread some pea pods and carrots together and and hung it in the cage. Now they can chew to their hearts content and it's also healthy!

    Check out the pics

    Mine are at the head of my bed, so there's usually a little line of them as soon as i turn off the light. Turn it back on to give them a squirt from the spray bottle and there's up to 13 little faces looking adorable :p

    Girls tend to chew more than boys so its good to find them something else to chew. Girls like to chew their way out of cages so its best to get something completely metal for girls. They arent chewing to be naughty its just they are trying to find males as they come into heat every few days.

    Thanks for that bit of info:D I didn't know that was the reason they chewed, I thought they just did it coz they were bored.
