    Dangerous lone rat, what do I do???

    Great, thanks. I actually mean he scratched. Like I saw him swipe at him. Hes kind of neurotic though. I try to hold him as much as i can. But he just seems kind of annoyed. My dangerous rat, He is usually the aggrivator when they get hurt.

    Dangerous lone rat, what do I do???

    Hey all. Let me give a little background. It all started when i saw a post from the animal shelter about a 3-4 month old rat that needed to get a good home. So I went there and the lady there someone said they found it on the street (like no way, that rat is as slippery as fresh cut linoleum.)...

    Big lump suddenly appears on rats shoulder? **emergency**

    Hey guys. My rat has a small cut on his shoulder inflicted by another rat about a week ago. And today I just discovered this big lump on his shoulder about the sise of a dime.

    Rat likes being in small cage alone?

    Sorry. @SQ Maby I should define myself. Fighting is not good. But dominant behaviors like pinning and power grooming or playing are fine. But I dont believe that actual fighting is ok.

    Thanks guys for the stories. I dont know if I am able to get another rat.(we already have like 7 of them.) And the financial and emotional burden might be a bit too much.(especially that we are moving). But I will see what we can do. so we will need to assess what we can do. But I dont like the...

    Remmy is about 2 1/2 months younger than my other rats. He has been severely abused (like his ear got cut) and has never had any association with other rats his whole life. I will follow the instructions in the link.

    Oxbow

    That's great advice. I will try that. Ones generally more greedy than the other so I geuss I will have to approximate the amounts. They are kinda greedy and will fight over existing food even if they're full and then just leave it to fight over again Lol.

    My rats have a problem with storing it and then they never eat it again. I'm not made of money(or food lol) so when I clean the cage out it wastes a bunch of urine soaked food.
