Re: What dog food?

thats because rat food is already high in protein and fat, extra protein from dog kibble is not needed. if feeding a shunamite diet with rabbit food or straights as a base, good quality dog kibble should make up about 10% of your overall mix. so you have something like this: base mix 60% (straights ...

Re: Bellas Resp Issues & Bulking up query.

baby food mixed with cooked pasta goes down well here. cooked carbs are good for bulking up. mine like couscous with veg and you can always sneak some oils and supplements in these kinds of meals too :)

Re: tiny rescued rats and advice needed

i know what you mean, i got my stillyrats' babies today and they are 4 times the size of the rescues. they're all snuggled up together now, it looks like a pile of 3 rats until you look closer and see another 3 tiny noses pop out from under the pile :D

Re: tiny rescued rats and advice needed

i want to wait til they get bigger before intro'ing them to my big boys too. while they're very gentle with the babies and have freeranged together i'm afraid they'd get squashed in a rattie pile by my little fatties :D

they now have names, Dobby, Dumbledore and Harry :D

Re: Will 2 more ratties make smell worse?

i agree with flox, you'll probably get used to it and wont notice much of a difference. however my mum insists that 'they stink' even after they've just been cleaned out when i don't think they smell at all so other people might notice a difference. change hammocks every few days and keep the litter...

Re: tiny rescued rats and advice needed

making food for them is more fun than making food for me :) there's quite a difference in just a few days in their size and confidence, they're becoming happy little men :D

Re: tiny rescued rats and advice needed

i've just checked it out, it's infuriating and upsetting that people are so careless with their animals :x, going to get some applepaws tomorrow for them. fattening them up is going to become my mission :D
