  • How do I convince my parents to let me get a pet rat?

    Best answer: Tell them Rats are one of the cleanest rodents.(it's true) Also, rats live at least 1-2 years, so you won't have them too long. You don't have to bathe them, they bathe themselves. Their cages are very easy to clean. And you can get good deals on rats, and rat food. Just one thing, though: Do NOT get a... show more

Even if they are small creatures, they will die if enclosed in a small space.

  • How do I get over guilt?

    I got a pet rat. But my parents wouldn't let me keep him, so I had to bring him back. Now I cant stop feeling guilty because of it.

  • Cute male rat names?

    Best answer: Do you have any favorite movies or books? You can use character names from those.

Food names like Latte, Mocha, Snickers, Peanut, Burrito, Coffee, Popcorn, Cinnamon, Honey. Or... show more
    Best answer: Do you have any favorite movies or books? You can use character names from those.

    Or you could choose names based on a theme:

    You could consider plant names like Basil, Pepper, Pumpkin, Rose, Daisy, Ivy.

    Food names like Latte, Mocha, Snickers, Peanut, Burrito, Coffee, Popcorn, Cinnamon, Honey.

    Or "sky" names like Orion, Pluto, Neptune, Draco, Galaxy, Nebula, Venus, Galaxy.

    Or rock names like Quartz, Malachite, Copper, Clay, Diamond, Silver, Marble, Slate, Coal.

    Or weather names like Blizzard, Volcano, Storm, Dusty, Sunny, Cloud, Rain, Frost

    Or based on color (depending on color of course) like Ginger, Cinnamon, Onyx, Vanilla, Cream, Snow, Midnight, Shadow, Cocoa, Butter, Spot, Speckles.

    Hopefully you already have other rats. Rats are definitely social and need to have other rats with which to live. Minimum 2 rats, but more is better. (We started with 2. One unexpectedly died so when we went back to the breeder, we ended up getting 3 more instead. Couldn't believe how much better it was to have 4 instead of just 2. When 1 rat is looking to play with its cagemate, it can always play with one even if another isn't in the mood.)

  • How long will it take for a mouse to turn into a rat?

    Best answer: If you let it alone to cocoon itself for at least three weeks, it'll form into a rat. Dont expose it to wind tho, cuz then it turns into a bat.

    So my boyfriend brought home a newborn mouse that he found alone in a dirt pile. It has furn but its eyes are still closed. I got him some esbilac formula and mixed it with warm water. I soaked a paint brush in the formula but he didn't seem to want much of it. We also have him in a small tank with cloth at the bottom for now and a heat lamp in the corner to keep him warm. He twitches a lot though and I've done light reading but couldn't find out why he does that. I just want to help him survive and do everything I can to ensure that. I just don't know what all to do.

  • Are my guinea pigs eating too much hay?

    Best answer: Guinea pigs need unlimited access to hay. It should be grass hay. Alfalfa can cause them to gain weight and is too high in calcium. Pellets are another common cause of overweight guinea pigs. Adults only need 1/8 cup a day. They should be timothy based pellets. Fruits and sugary veggies should be limited. You can... show more
    Best answer: Guinea pigs need unlimited access to hay. It should be grass hay. Alfalfa can cause them to gain weight and is too high in calcium.
    Pellets are another common cause of overweight guinea pigs. Adults only need 1/8 cup a day. They should be timothy based pellets.
    Fruits and sugary veggies should be limited. You can always cut them out completely to help with weight loss.
    Feed a cup of veggies, per pig, daily.

    Proper diet is important but cage size also effects a guinea pigs weight. The bigger the better. I had an overweight piggy and I upgraded her cage a few times. Each time I made it bigger, she lost a bit of weight with no other changes. She eventually was in a 60 square foot cage (with her 3 buddies) and she got down to a healthy weight at that time and maintained it. 2 of my other pigs were also a tad bit overweight and they slimmed down too. My healthy weight pig remained at a healthy weight. You don't have to go crazy like I did but if you can make the cage bigger you should do that.

  • Why Did My Rat Die?

    I think she was sick because I got her from the pet store, but on the first day she was completely fine. She was eating, drinking, and was pretty energetic. On the second day in the morning she was sort of sluggish. I took her out to play for a bit and let her run around. Her movement was slow and she stopped in place many times and just sat there. I let her climb on me when she fell off my shoulder (I was sitting down on the floor). She got up and seemed fine, but she was doing sort of a strange hopping motion while dragging herself across the floor when she suddenly stopped moving and died. She was about 3 months old according to the pet store and was making weird noises when I took her out the cage. Did she die from the fall? Was she sick? Could her origins from the pet store have to do with her quick death? Did I do something wrong? Please tell me, I don t want to risk something like this again if I get another rat.
