Taming a young skittish rat

Hi everyone! We finally have our 2 young female ratties! Usagi and Luna. We got them pn the 18th of this month, not long ago. Usagi is not very fearful, she doesn't love being picked up but in seconds she adapts ans stays on the hand. She even sleeps in our pockets and likes being petted. Luna, on t...

How do I wash fleece?

Hey, guys! I've got another question xD Sorry Can i wash the fleece with normal washing machine detergent? I've seen people use special detergents but it's not very easy to find that here, i believe. Washing it with normal detergent and just letting it dry 100% is okay, no? Does it turn the fleece t...

Re: Is this food good?

I've seen in so many videos and forums that lab blocks are the best balanced food you can give them. Using the blocks + veggies, fruit, and chicken isnt a good option?

Is this food good?

Hi, everyone! I'll get my 2 young girls in a week or so, and i've been shopping for items. I live in Portugal, so it's not very easy to come by the recommended products i see on forums and youtube videos. I tried buying Oxbow but today i found out they don't send rat foot to Portugal because it is r...

Re: Hey, guys! I need to know if this litter is safe

Hi and welcome to the forum. I haven’t heard of that one. I would use it rather than through it away. If there are any issues, then through it away. Thanks! :) Yeah, cause wood isn't bad, right? As long as it isn't cedar or pine. And the fact that it is pellet form makes it a lot better in terms of...

I would suggest 100% paper pellets for the toilets, and then a thick layer of something loose and soft for the main floor. Not sure where y...
