Only 2 females. The cage I have is suitable for 4 rats so hopefully they'll be happy in there. Tonight I'm making hammocks

What kind of cages do you recommend for rats out of interest? One day I may be able to get some myself.

Depends on how many rats you want. They must be kept in pairs or groups as you already know.

The 'rule' is 2 cubic feet per rat. And a wire cage which is tall is better than one that's short and long as they love to climb.

A good 'starter' cage for 2 rats would be the furat plus in p@h. It's about £85 I think.

Thanks are no good for them as they love to climb.

They can also get quite big. My one boy Niklaus was almost 1kg in his prime and the length of my arm

Congratulations! I’ve long been intrigued by rats; I’ve heard they are smart and affectionate. Do post those pics when you have them!

Oh yes they are. They are often compared to dogs because they are that smart. My boys knew their names, would come when called, go in the cage when told, spin, roll over, jump through hoops, they were litter trained for both pee and poop. They were amazing and very affectionate. Niklaus was very licky boy and would groom my arms and hands.

Siamese point, ruby eyed Dumbo rat (cream one with elephant ears) was my sweet boy Klaus

Can't remember what Damon's markings are called so I'll probably edit this later

Well I'm counting down the hours until the little ones are home. Just setting up the cage as we speak. Will add photos and answer any questions as rat and hamster needs are very different. I don't know if you can tell but I'm reeeeeeeeeally excited

THEYRE HERE!

I present to you Inky (white stripe on face) and Splat (all black)

(For some reason it won't allow me to upload an image of Splat. Probably as she's so cute. Will try again later
