Re: Swollen snout - URGENT REPLIES PLEASE

I do hope my little man is able to teach us something and so his death will have at least contributed something to future rats. There was also a junior vet present for the PM so hopefully he/she learnt something from him too. I really admire you for saying that Jude. It must be so hard for you at t...

Re: ingested chewing gum. Help!

I am sure she will be fine if there have not been any problems so far, however I would strongly advise putting a lock on your door so that your flatmate can't do anything so irresponsible again. :roll: Likewise.

Re: Cage upgrade

Explain you could take the rat but wouldnt be able to offer any cash specifically for her. So you could pay the £45 for the cage only (no toys) and the rat for free? Explain you can try to integrate her with your girls but have the facilities to rehome if that doesn't work?

Re: Cage upgrade

If you take the girl and you cant get her to integrate into your group then you must be aware that a) you may have a lone girl and b) if you have paid for her then you cant rehome via the FR rehoming boards. However. I wouldnt leave her if she wasnt getting the right attention/love/care. eta: or say...
