Hi all,

New to the site and new to fancy rat keeping.

I've recently added 3 pet rats to the family. Theyre all male and all brothers. My kids adore them and theyre extremely tame - currently enjoying cuddles and play time out of their cage. My daughter who's 7 is in love and sits talking to them at any opportunity. My son of 3 is still at the touching stage. They both understand not to be loud and jumpy around them so I'm happy with them being around them supervised.

My biggest concern - not a concern but something I want to teach soon - is the whole toilet training. Theyre 9 weeks old so still young. I've got a corner toilet with some proper toilet pellet type stuff. They use it frequently but theyre still pooing anywhere and weeing anywhere.

I can't really judge where they prefer because it's so random.

Will they eventually crack it or should I put all the fresh poo in the toilet and hope they understand where it goes?!

A side question; I'm after a platform/shelf so I can make my tall cage have an additional tier as one of the rats is a Manx and doesn't yet like climbing with being tailless.

Any advice welcome as I'm a little green on this.

Cheers,
Matt
