Should I get two male pet rats or two female?
Asked By axelflame8,Last Answer By Simply Beautiful At 2010.01,1 Answers

I currently have three gerbils, one is a single one :'( who is getting to her older ages. She is still active when she's awake, but sleeps quite a bit more than she used to. My boyfriend and I also recently lost a pet mouse. I thought it would be nice to get us a pair of rats. (After my gerbil passes away.) I wouldn't be getting them for a while, but I just want to be sure this is what we want.
Anyway, I have read that male rats are calmer, but their urine smells worse than a male mouse! Regardless of the cage being cleaned properly, that does not mean their urine doesn't smell. Please just tell me about the urine smell, not how to maintain the cage.
How are the females? Which pair is better in your opinion?

Can multiple male rats live with a female rat?
Asked By Demetrius Greene,Last Answer By xtwiztidjokakillax At 2011.04,1 Answers

I have three male rats and would like to get a female. I know i would need to have my males all neutered. I have read that males are more likely to fight over dominance when female rats are present. Will they still fight over the female even if they are all neutered? Would I also need to get the female spayed? Currently all of my rats get along very well.

Help Choosing Names for my Female Rats?
Asked By Kori,Last Answer By B!nd! At 2011.04,1 Answers

On Saturday I am getting two female rats. I have owned four rats before, and I know that I will not really be able to choose the names until I know what they look like and what their personalities are, but I'm just trying to get a few ideas. Here's what I have no far.

1) Bubble and Squeak
2) Rosie and Lily
3) Piper and Kitty
4) Jinx and Ripley
5) Star and Luna

Feel free to comment on my ideas or give ideas of your own! Please don't just give me a long list of names you copied from a website, pairs only, and preferably give them some thought??

Also, preferably not two names that sound too similar, (such as Hailey and Kaylee), because it makes it more difficult to teach them their names.

Thank you for your help!! : )

How much meat and what kind for my 2 female rats?
Asked By Johanna,Last Answer By Torrie A At 2011.04,1 Answers

I know rats are omnivorous, and that you can feed them dog food to supplement the meat in their diet, but my question is, how much? The food I have is Wellness Core. I usually give them a couple of piece about twice a week, but I'm not sure if this is right. One of my dogs is on a high protein diet, and when I was preparing his individual meals of boiled chicken For the week (to add to his kibble) one of my rats (a hairless female) was on my shoulder and jumped down and snatched a piece of chicken! Should I be giving them more than just a couple pieces of my dog's kibble? I haven't been able to find any helpful info online about how much I should be giving them, just that hairless rats burn calories faster than a furred rat and that they need extra protein. Any help will be appreciated! Thanks!

Two male rats together?
Asked By jungle of desire,Last Answer By AbbyLover94 At 2011.04,1 Answers

I want to get a pet male rat, but I have read that it is better for the rat to get two rats so that the rats don't get lonely. If I were to get to male rats, would the be aggressive towards each other? I would get them at the same time from the same pet store. And another thing, I also read that male rats smell and female rats don't. Is this true? And if it is, would they smell less if I bathed them regularly?

We have three male dumbo rats...?
Asked By MysteryGirl3773,Last Answer By Ashera At 2011.04,1 Answers

We have three male dumbo rats, One is albino and called Loopy, another is white and grey and called Wotsit, and the third is black and white and called Minstrel. Minstrel doesn't come out very often, but Wotsit and Loopy do. Loopy absolutley hates the keyboards on our laptops, but Wotsit loves them, and loves walking over them and typing random stuff. Is this normal, and which one is normal? I'm not worried about it, i'm just curious. Thanks for any answers x

Male brother rats biting. Help!?
Asked By Rebekah,Last Answer By Lisa Morse At 2011.04,1 Answers

We have five rats. Three are females and seem to get on well in their cage. The two males are brothers and everything was fine up until yesterday. Raffin has been bitten enough to draw blood. He has scabs on the back of his neck and a new wound that seems to be bleeding. What the hell do we do? We've kept rats before but we haven't seen blood until now. We've had the normal play fights and squeaking, but this is something else. Separate or hope for the best..?

Why do so many who answer rat questions about male rats being housed together think they need to be separated?
Asked By MadDog,Last Answer By Jen A At 2010.01,1 Answers

I wish I could tell you... how often I see this in answers to questions with male rats being housed together. As soon as there's any question of rats squabbling, or even if someone just mentions housing rats together, the responses invariably are calls to separate them.

So I must ask, those of you who answer the male rat question this way: why do you think this? What experience have you had that will generalize that solution?

Maybe someone will surprise me, but let me tell you what I know and have learned about housing male rats. Male rats can get along just fine in a cage together, as long as they are introduced slowly, preferably with some contact in neutral territory outside the cage... and when the rats have an ample-sized cage with enough food at all times.

If you have male rats that fought, they were introduced too fast, the cage was too small, the food wasn't plentiful enough, or you have that occasional rogue rat that just doesn't do well with others. (add-on coming)

Ideas for a handbag to carry rats in? please help!? (pet rats of course)?
Asked By lynxlover623,Last Answer By JOMS Girl At 2010.01,1 Answers

Okay, since i will likely post this in a fashion area, i would like to say to start off, even if you dislike rats, keep it to yourself. I need good ideas for how to do this and i want answered questions, not just 'eww rats why would you do something for your rats like this'. I am serious. i am tired of such things.

Okay, especially since i am taking three male rats out on haloween this year, and i want some other ways to take them places, i decided to make myself a good handbag. One that is tough and hard to chew through, but easy enough to cut small slots through or something. i thought about denim but i don't really have a lot. i really only have old clothes if anything, so ways to secure fabrics and stop rips would be nice!
while saying that, i would also like to add that i only have about $9 that i may have to give away, so please if you suggest purchases make them cheap or if possible, a more common alternative or something.

okay, so my dad has a small cheap sewing thing and he made his own small thing with a bunch of pockets to carry his nursing things, so he may be able to help me figure that out nif i could persuade him, but although i suck with needle and thread, i have somei can can just use to sew sides up. oh, and ways to make good pocket or more, or ways to make a hard window or something would be nice.

Okay, remember, serious answers!
