Re: Cage Dilema

I ended up putting the new boys in the Furet and leave septimus in the Adobe. I will be hoping that i can have them all in the Adobe once they have been introduced to each other.

Re: Cage Dilema

I've decided to get a furet plus cage for Septimus. I can then clean the Adobe out and use that for the new boys.

Re: How do i deal with a grieving rat?

Im looking at getting a pair of young rats to keep septimus company. I wouldnt get just one rat in case something happens to Septimus and then the new one is left alone.

Thanks to everyone who replied for the advice. I'll let you know what happens when i get my new boys.
