Re: No fighting but do my rats dislike each other?

After a week in the bare hamster cage I have moved them back to their Furet Plus this morning. I am yet to see them cuddled up together as none are interested in sleeping after being in such a boring cage for so long! I have seen the two younger ones playing whilst Reggie has been foraging however w...

Re: Really upset - Just been bitten for the first time ever

I'm a fairly new rat owner in the grand scheme of things but if there's a chance it may be of any use to you, I will share my story of my older rat Reggie, and I'm sure someone a lot more experienced will come along with some great advice in no time. When I got Reggie at 8 weeks old (and his brother...

Re: No fighting but do my rats dislike each other?

After a number of hours cuddled in a carrier and grooming one another I've now moved them to a small hamster cage. They don't look impressed with me! :lol:

They all have me wrapped around their little paws with those cute wee faces! They know I'm soft, they line up for treats at their door! Have to use all my willpower to say no after the first couple each :lol:

Re: No fighting but do my rats dislike each other?

Yes, I had to go away for a couple of days and whilst I had someone to feed them for me and look out for them, I didn't want to put the added pressure on them of keeping an eye on them in their new cage together. Basically I'm a fusspot and wanted to be able to keep an eye on them myself in their ne...

No fighting but do my rats dislike each other?

So about a week and a half ago I introduced two baby bucks of 8 weeks old to an older buck of 8 months for some company as the older buck had lost his brother a few months before and I had read that when introducing bucks, it's better to avoid doing so when their hormones are all haywire so I waited...

Re: ferplast furet plus

Here's my set up for three young boys. You can actually see Rupert peeking out through the 'modified' pouch. Apparently Reggie decided he needed a panoramic view! http://i1148.photobucket.com/albums/o571/Daisy_Mulcahy/image%204_zpsgfp0jwb0.jpeg They all seem to love it and when they're not sleeping ...

Please help identify my babies' variety :)

Hi there, I recently got two new boys, Rupert and Ralph, as companions for my older boy Reggie. I'm not particularly good identifying varieties although I do know (well I think anyway!) that Reggie is a black striped roan. I'm confused about my younger boys though, despite trying to do lots of resea...
