His face in that pic is kinda dirty but his is solid pink(white). His brother Krum was kind of skinny looking when i first got them, here is a pic of him ...

Re: My hairless rat doesnt seem to be growing.

I have never yet seen a hairless rat grow any bigger than that of a 'furred' 3 month old kitten. I'm happy to be proven wrong, but they've always seemed dead weedy to me! My hairless rats are much bigger than my furred ones. Here is my largest one Scabbers. He is a chunky boy... http://i1120.photob...

Re: Ant Problem in Rat Cage

Im sure they are ants, we have never had an issue with them before. Its strange because the ants font get into the cat's free feed bowl, just the rats' cage and foodbowls.

But the ants dont just go to the wet/fresh food, they get in all the food, and all in the cage, i can see them on the wires of the cage as well. So ive been having to basically clean the ...

EdibleLogz by 8and1 Pet Products

Hey Rat lovers and small pet lovers
I recently learned that the number one ingredient in the ediblelogs for small pets is PINE SHAVINGS. If pine is bad for small critters then why are they selling it as a treat/toy?
