Re: FR's atmosphere currently.

I know I tend to lurk a lot more than I post, but I'm reluctant to post a lot of the time because of the unpleasantness that tends to happen - especially recently! I have been genuinely shocked at how rude and unkind people have been. Another thing that I find really irritating is when people have a...

Re: Ferplast red ladders!

Red ones are narrower. They are the same size as the ladders in the hamster cages. Pink and grey are wider & better for heavier rats. There is also: New BABY BLUE sets of shelf and ladder now available from Savic here Pic below: http://www.equinecaninefeline.com/catalog/images/savic-plastic-cage-sh...

Re: Ferplast red ladders!

Where did you order them from? - ECF had a note on the description to say they were narrower. I got rid of mine as they were a bit /too/ small! :lol:

Re: Furet Tower

It's well worth the money! It's the most expensive cage I've bought and my favourite to date. I know some people have access issues, but I never have.

Mine's down to an XL now, which I love even more because I can use the door in the top as well! :D

Re: Lost my rat :(

If he did go round the U-bend it would be worth checking your outside drain - the manhole covers aren't that hard to lift up.

One of my girls looks like that - she's definitely a girl, but she has more pronounced inguinal fatty bits.

Scattie - I have ichthyosis, so I really feel for the little guy! The Dermisol has made his pink patches much worse, although his tail does appear to be getting better. - He is a bit grubby, but his brother is really pink and clean at the moment! :lol: Tagalong - we're off to the Vet Thursday for sk...

Skin issue with hairless boy - ideas?

Noodles has a mystery skin issue - pink spots! He's had these pink patches since late September / October last year, they were checked by my vet at the time and we agreed to leave them be as they weren't bothering him; no itching, etc. He has been treated for parasites. He's never scratched at them,...
