Re: New rat. Aggressive and bites.

Sad news 😔 We’ve gone from 8 babies to 5 😭 This whole time, I thought that the delicate and vulnerable time for these babies to die or get eaten was when they were still pink and furless. It wasn’t until after they’ve grown and weaned off of their mother and started eating adult food that they start...

Re: New rat. Aggressive and bites.

How are things going? Thank you SO much, Mary! You have been such a blessing during this unexpected development haha I have them in the All Living Things starter rat kit cage right now.

Re: New rat. Aggressive and bites.

Thank you for your detailed response! Yes, I’ve been trying to find a companion for her ever since I get her. My intentions were to enter the shop and go home with 2 or three beauties. However, she was the only one there. Her condo is in the main room, near our hedgehog. My daughter and I are very s...

Re: New rat. Aggressive and bites.

How old is she? What is her background? Does she have companions? They said she’s 6 months old when I got her just a couple weeks ago, almost. I got the last female in our area. I’ve been calling around trying to find another female to be her roommate, but all the female carrying locations I’ve cal...

Hi, guys. I just got a new female fancy rat. I can’t get near her and can’t even clean her cage. She bites HARD and draws blood every single time. Very aggressive. What can I do?
