I will transport to anyone in NJ and meet half way if in NY or PA. I will give you the cage, food, litter and treats that I still have. Please help me find a good home for my babies.
can someone help these rats!!!!!!!!!!
Anonymous said: so I've had my female rat for almost a year, and I'm getting another female soon. Any specific guidelines on them meeting each other? Do you think they'll fight or any thing like that? Sorry I just want to be safe.
Here are some articles with great suggestions to help make introductions go smoothly.
Hope these help!

I was away for a few weeks and when I got my girls back, the oldest one had lost a lot of weight and now her fur has hairless spots.. The youngest is now really fat, so cleary she ate most of the food ! I'm feeding them seperatly and I'm keeping an eye on the mom for now, but I'd like to know if there's something specific I should do to bring the oldest back on her paws ?
Oh what a naughty little lady! Here is a forum post with suggestions on foods that can help to fatten up your rat a little. Unfortunately all I could really find was mostly forum posts with other rat owners giving suggestions.
Whilst browsing for something helpful, I found that a lot of people have suggested Ensure, which is a high calorie powdered drink, available from most pharmacies.
If anyone else has any suggestions, please contact original asker or reblog/reply to this post :)
