Hello All! It has been a while since I have posted, my husband lost one job and gained another AND we moved into a new house across town. In other news, we will be welcoming our first two-legged baby this spring. My question to those out there who have been pregnant while caring for rats: Are there any special precautions I should take in terms of cleaning or handling? My mother is paranoid and read something about a "LCMV" infection that rodents can carry; I think it's something that is generally a concern with just wild rats, but I would like to ease my mom's mind. Any advice would help!!
