Re: Emergency rat plans

We're keeping the carriers and the spare cage by the existing cages. I only have 2 carriers at the moment (and 2 hamsters 2 rats) but we have the tiny cage Tiff came in which will do in an emergency. We live above a small private betting shop and Gloucester was rioted last night and there is suppose...

Re: Fighting wound?

It's not very big at all really; maybe 1/4 to 1/2 an inch maximum.

It's just me being worried I'm sure, I'll just keep an eye to it and see how it goes. Thanks :)

Re: Vets bill

I was quoted about £65 for an abscess removal and thought that was very fair. When they break it down for you; consult (£13) plus gas, plus meds while under plus take home medication I thought it worked out pretty fair.

Fighting wound?

I have two rats, Tiffany and Rommie. Rommie came to me from Rat out of Hell rescue (Thanks Secret_Pennel again!) and Tiff was a private rescue. They've bonded fairly well so far, but Tiffany's manners are atrocious with other rats. Her previous owner had her on her own for 10 months. As a result she...

Re: Vet recommendation in Herefordshire

Wee bit out of your way but me and my girlie's visit SPA vets in Gloucester (Painswick Road) and have found the service there amazing. They also have an office in Quedgely.

Re: Big hole in rats back....

It's always said how quickly rats heal and up until last week I never had any idea (not having rats before!) of how quickly they do heal. My Rommie had an abcess that burst and left a great big hole on her neck under her chin. The vet said she thought it was a pretty bad one and they do see a fair f...

Re: What Are Your Rats Favourite 'Human' Foods?

So far Tiff will MOB you for chicken (plain cooled cooked chicken) and she also really loves prawn crackers. We had a rare takeaway the other night and there was Tiff, (rattie) Ludlow and Attie (the hammies) all going *crunch crunch crunch* not to mention my fella :lol: She also loves carrot and lit...

Re: Whats the worst second hand cage you've ever seen?

Think the one that always annoys me is when people try flogging hamster/mouse cages for rats, chipmunks etc. Notice some on-line new sellers do that too. Have been offered one so called rat cage (in reality mouse) with hole in bottom and bit of loose wood over it, it was apparently all right if you...

Re: Homemade Hammocks

I've only made one so far but it was so easy. It's a very basic one and when I have a larger cage I'm going to experiment with different styles. I just used a square of fleece, snipped a hole in each corner and used some yarn to hang them up with. For future ones I want to get metal chains to attach...
