Re: The Savic Royal Family

I can be part of this family now. I have my SRS a few months now and its the best cage ever! I love how easy it is to clean, changing the layout is a breeze and it looks really smart in the sitting room. Everyone that visits comments on how nice it fits in the room. Love this cage :hearts:

Re: Help with clipping claws..Rat just got stuck! pic

Cutting nails can be scary so I dont blame you for avoiding it but if they are getting stuck on things then its gotta be done. Do you have someone that can help hold them while you cut? I usually have my OH wrap them in a towel so their face is covered and quickly snip them with a human Nail clipper...

Re: Rat got eaten, help.

Rats can get sick and pass away so quickly, literally be fine one minute and drop the next so chances are she probably past away from a sudden illness and they felt the need to clean up the area. Its not very common but does happen. Its their...

Re: Did I do the right thing having her put to sleep??

I'm so sorry you had to make such a hard decision. Its really heartbreaking losing a beloved friend but I can imagin its so much harder when you must help them to the rainbow bridge. Dont feel guilty, you did what you felt was best and from your story it sounds like you did her a kindness. Its ok to...
