Re: Edible gnaw treat for boys on a diet?

Wow great ideas thank you all! In terms of the puzzle feeders, could anyone link to one that they use? There are so many out there that I'm a bit overwhelmed and would love to find one that someone else's ratties loved from a reputable source (non-toxic plastic etc.) They have a pets at home treat b...

Are all types of kale ok? And which dark chocolate?

I think i read somewhere that curly kale isn’t, but i may have got that the wrong way around. Basically i’m wondering about the kale in an Asda mixed leaf salad bag. Is it always the same type used in bags of salad? I’m not much of a chef so for all I know one type could be ‘desert Kale’ ; ) I’ve he...

Edible gnaw treat for boys on a diet?

Hi all, Anyone got any good tips for a healthy edible gnaw treat that takes a long time to eat a little of? My boys’ previous owner really over fed them so they’re on a diet and absolutely manic at meal times. I’d feel a lot better being even stricter with their portions until they’re a healthy weig...

Re: Temperature & Humidity Ranges

Wow, 23° is very hot. I have one girl who starts to go flat at that temperature. I let the temperature drop to 14-15° and that’s fine for them. In my old apartment during a very cold winter I couldn’t get it above 10° and my naked girl was under the blankets a lot, but the hairy ones were fine, alt...

Re: Stupid question but, does anyone give their guys & girls a nightlight?

No, I don’t give them a nightlight, but it isn’t dark in my living room (curtains aren’t completely closed). I don’t think it would be harmful to give them a nightlight as long as it isn’t to bright. It isn’t dark outside either. Hi Frodo Quin, Thanks very much for the advise and it's nice to meet ...

Stupid question but, does anyone give their guys & girls a nightlight?

Hey all, I've read in a load of places that a rats' eyesight is only a small part of how they navigate, but I still hate turning the light out at night when I've given them an adventurous new layout. I try to make every layout as safe as possible with no big drops, but I know I mustn't make them so ...

Re: Temperature & Humidity Ranges

I've never had any experience with the PDSA myself, but most vets get very little training on rodents in general (nevermind rats specifically), and then get very little experience treating them, so I am entirely unsurprised by a veterinary organisation that mostly sees dogs and cats not knowing the...

Re: Temperature & Humidity Ranges

Thank you both so much, that is a HUGE relief! When i came down one morning to find the temperature down to 18 i felt like the worst ratty mum ever and have been scared to turn the heating off ever since?! I try to take most things with a pinch of salt and assess the source etc. but you would think ...

Temperature & Humidity Ranges

Hi Guys, So until we adopted our little babes we had had our central heating set to go off from about 12am-6am, and then again from around 8am-3pm as we had no pets. I've read on the PDSA website that they should be kept at 23 degrees and on the RSPCA's one that the room should be between 19-25 degr...

Cheap, tip-proof flying saucer?

Hi Guys, I have recently adopted two amazing boys who were absolutely enormous and so are now on a diet. They are thought to be around a year old so I opted to get them a cheap plastic Trixie running disc (12") which they could use only at playtime while I waited to see if they took to it. ( https:/...
