Re: Substrate- how necessary?

I am using auboise at the moment. It keeps the smell down, the food mixes in well for scatter feeding and they seem to do really well on it.

Re: Emergency rat plans

I have one because of the dogs in the house and nursing mums and litters. My main groups are kept in the shed so if we had a house fire they should be ok.

I have a carrier in the house so can empty any rats into or as they rats are in Mary's, Robert grabs the cage and I get the dogs.

Re: Finding a rat breeder

Don't discount breeders who aren't in your area. I travel regularly to North Wales and Manchester to visit family so if you find a breeder you like ask if its possible to arrange to meet at a show or a rat train :)
