Rats can have onion

Re: what are fellow rattie peoples opinions on this?

Branni was happier alone with me than he was in the cage with any of the others. Having him neutered done nothing for how the others treated him or his reaction. Now he's settled with his girlyfriend he is much happier and sleeps and plays with her as though nothing before ever happened. Rolly woul...

Re: what are fellow rattie peoples opinions on this?

Its a really difficult situation for you now but the story is a very lovely one, thank god you rescued him. Option 3 sounds like the best option but if you really cant afford to go up to 6 then you need to think very carefully about budgeting and if you can make it work. I have no experience of int...
