On Feb 9th, my boyfriend and I went to a animal expo, and we adopted two female rats. We called them Lyla and Ella. Throughout the month they kept pining each other down. We didn't think anything of this, thought it was a territory thing. Ella got very big very fast, I was wondering if she was pregnant. However we just though she was a bigger rat. Fast forward till last night. We heard very quiet squeaking we didn't think anything of it and went to bed (because they pinned each other down so was common). This morning our foster cat had her kittens. Then when we went back to our rooms I checked on the rats and took lyla out and then I was looking for Ella. I picked up her Igloo and she had about 9 lil beans. We were in shock. But we quickly ran out and got a different cage for Lyla so Ella could care to her kits. Can we please have some advice and tips to help us with our surprise litter. Since we never had a litter before and have really no idea how to care for them. As well as Lyla since she has been separated from Ella. Please help us!
