    I have two male Siamese and two white with black eyed males. I have two Siamese females. They are all in related and I do not breed! Three of my males live together one is separated because he gets picked on by all three of my males no matter what. My females live together in their big cage. My males Sid and ninja are the friendliest they cuddle for hours no pee or poops and love to give kisses :) rats are such good peTs!!

    Welcome to the forum! :)
    Hope you share lots of pics of your sweet ratties

    You may find the Reference Thread to have helpful information https://www.ratshackforum.com/threads/reference-thread-read-only.35894/

    If you have access to a good vet with the knowledge and experience to safely spay rats, you might want to consider spaying your girls as it is important for health reasons
    All surgery is a risk but with a vet who knows how to do it safely, it is low risk
    https://www.ratshackforum.com/threads/why-spay-or-neuter-rats.35402/

    Plus if you get your girls spayed, maybe you could intro your lone boy to them so they can live together

    Yes he could be neutered by a good vet with the knowledge and experience to safely neuter rats, after a neuter you wait 3 weeks before starting physical intros.

    However spaying is important for health reasons so important to do if possible.
    We do have a good vet in Fredericton who can spay and neuter rats if you can not find a good one in Moncton

    Omg you have a shirt diver! :p:D I have one that will dive down a shirt EVERY chance possible! She doesn't care who is holding her! She especially loves to dive down a shirt on someone new, and startle the crap out of them, just to check out what's down there (maybe you're hiding snacks) and to sniff the strange new person! :D
