    Of course! Only what’s in the best interest of the rat :) I only meant if there’s nothing that can be done, I would never encourage that for no reason. Was just agreeing with the fact it would be more ethical if it’s the ratties time to go. Sorry if that was confusing! Hope you can fix the problems! I’ll stop posting in the thread so there’s less people and the original poster will be less confused haha. Sorry bout that.

    Guys I think she's doing better! She was chasing her sister around my bed today, she's been eating on her own without me having to give her anything! She seems to be doing so much better! Thanks for all of your help and support, it's been amazing to have people to lean on and people who have rats as pets to talk to.

    She's still skinny but she's gaining weight and she doesn't feel as fragile.

    Yeah me too, it's definitely looking up for her. I'm glad she is starting to look better because I've been only half able to function out of worry... I need to get my head back in school lol

    It is great to talk to others with rats. I am always showing pics and videos of mine to people, and I get insane looks. I am constantly educating people about pet rats. People associate them with sewer rats, but they are totally different. Like a dog and wolf. I think I may be getting a baby dumbo soon. My mischief is down to 5 and I like a good even number. Also, all of mine are trained, and do tricks! Rats are awesome!

    I had a rat die during my school year and it made me late for a project but I got it done! It’s hard to go through school when worrying about a loved one that’s for sure! You can do it :)

    I’d love to see the little baby dumbo awww! And wow I tried to train mine but I have not succeeded lol. I had people tell me to watch out because my rats will give me diseases... they are just misinformed.

    Answer all of lilspaz68's questions promptly.
    She has a great deal of experience and you definitely want her input

    You should also see if there is a good rat rescue that would take all of your rats, provide them with medical care, and rehome them to a good home where they will get proper medical care, etc
