Re: A question of poop...

Expect stress/confused poos for no more than a week after you get them. If they are babies, because of the extra protein they will smell more than say adults/oldies with less protein. The extra smelly and loose poos will go away with time though :) Thanks. I can remember reading that both youth and...

A question of poop...

Sorry about the title :lol: I haven't had the internet too much recently (it's taken virgin a month to give a date for a new installation after cocking up) but I do have some rat things now :dumbo: Before the internet (hotspot) runs out I just wanted to ask a couple of questions to put my mind at ea...

Finacard (ordering the stuff)

Quite a simple question from me today. I may just be having a few minutes of cluelessness but after quickly checking the finacard website I couldn't find out- can orders be made on the site using paypal? For various personal reasons I try to use my card on as few sites as possible, so I was hoping t...

Furet xl query

Hi, yesterday I set up the furet xl I bought ages ago properly (having quickly set it up when I first got it to check everything fit). However I noticed that the top corner clips didn't go all the way down into the poles that hold the cage together were it is a flat pack cage. The cage is currently ...

Re: Just how sickly are rats?

Thanks for the replies, I was a bit worried about such things, and did myself no favours by reading the "Just to prove how expensive..." thread (and then going back to read newer replies) :lol: Also there have been two things I've been pondering about with regards to health etc. 1) I can't remember ...

Just how sickly are rats?

Hi, I'm certain part of it is just exposure to the topics on the forum (after all, who would start a topic about "my rat is healthy" unless it was really old) but from some of my exposure to rat healthcare etc, it almost seems as though rats are born with a walking stick and things get worse from th...

Re: Want some opinions on a cage

The finacard topic reminded me of some questions (but it'd be rude to ask them in someone elses, I'm not a thread hijacker :lol: ) I have three questions- 2 normal, one probably stupid 1) roughly how deep a layer of finacard should the cage have in cm/inche(s)? 2) based on the above, how long would ...

Re: Want some opinions on a cage

The cage turned up today...it's a monster :o Even I managed to underestimate it's size :lol: I suspect it will be a bit time consuming to clean, but thanks to my long arms :lol: I have a reasonable good reach into the cage from either doorway (and the doorways were larger then I thought they'd be, w...

Re: Want some opinions on a cage

So I may now currently be waiting (quite impatiently :oops: ) for a certain cage to turn up... I have been wondering for a bit now- what would you recommend as a lining (I doubt that's the correct term...bedding/substrate?) for the cage. At the moment given the size of the cage etc, I am thinking of...

Re: Want some opinions on a cage

Thanks, those pics are quite useful, now I know what it'll be looking like for a while (after I've set it up to make sure everything is fine) :D

Re: Want some opinions on a cage

one what is the actual size? Some places say 80 x 75 x 161 cm while others say 80 x 75 x 86.5, unless some of my results about size are related to the furet tower :oops: The taller is the tower. They do flat pack, the sides and top are all separate panels. :D That's good, it's likely I won't have a...

Some places say 80 x 75 x 161 cm while others say 80 x 75 x 86.5, unless some of my results about size are related to the furet tower :oops: Secondly: I think I've heard about it being able to be "flat packed"...is that what is says on the tin...

Want some opinions on a cage

I'm currently looking through the review section (again) and trying to find some threads, but the search option on pretty much every forum I've used has tended to hate me :oops: so I thought I'd just ask. Today while searching for rat cages again I stumbled upon a cage, that I'm almost certain about...
