First intro's - need advice

I lost one of my 2 year old boys, jack' on thursday leaving his brother charlie alone. I immediately started looking for some friends for him and thankfully my boyfriend was mad enough to volunteer to drive me 350 miles to get these guys: http://www.fancy-rats.co.uk/community/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=15...

Re: cage decision

I just ordered the Freddy 2 Max and a few toys and cage accessories for about £50 less than the freddy 3 on its own would've cost. And it comes with a sputnic, for some reason I've always wanted one!

cage decision

I've moved into my new house now and have space for a new cage at last (I've been planning on replacing my critter2 since february). I was intending on getting a freddy 3 but since it was out of stock I looked at the freddy 2 max. The Freddy 2 max is much more affordable and can house 5 rats accordi...

Re: Why do people dislike critters?

My critter is wobbly, rusty and smelly. It's off to the tip as soon as I find out how much space i'll have in my new room for a cage.

Re: can rats eat chocolate n cakes n stuff

When you say first rat, do you mean you only have one? If so you should definitely find it a same sex friend as rats are very sociable animals and need others of the same species to interact with. As for chocolate, sweet and cakes and so on, they are not suitable for rats to eat so if you have small...

Re: what cage is a good size for 5 female rats?

I'm very tempted by the Freddy3, Its pricey but its a good size, looks like it has good access and looks like it'd be easy to keep clean. Several times recently I've planned to get a new cage. The first time the OH said no it was too expensive. The second time the OH gave in then we split up and i h...

Re: Vet confusion over neutering Ratties in YORK - Advice?

Both Tower vets and S T Stead will do neuters. Tower quoted me about £60 I think, Stead said £45. I took my boy to Stead and was happy with the results.

Re: When can my young rats go into petshop?

Well I have no breeding experience and have only owned two rats so I don't really have much help for you in answering your questions but this thread has made me realise that I could do much more for animal welfare. I never even thought about the free rangeness of my mayo.

Re: Savic Freddy 2 MAX

I can't offer any help but I'm thinking of buying one when I move house in a couple of months as my critter2 is on its last legs and my plans for an abode didn't happen due to having to move to a smallish rented room at short notice. So i'll be watching this thread to see what people have to say abo...
