Welcome to Understanding Pet Fancy Rats!
Now that I have your attention, it’s time for you to enter our realm: the realm of the fancy rat! These creatures are far from the diseased sewer monsters that many believe them to be, and it’s our job to prove it! Therefore, we welcome anyone and everyone to attempt to understand this drastically misunderstood pet and give them a touch the rat fever!
Here, we will discuss nearly anything “rat”. From blue rex rats to dumbo hairless rats, we will cover any type of rat. Any type of rat behavior issue. Maybe you want to know why your rat is bruxing, or why your pet only wants to sleep in its litter box. Rats can be difficult to understand sometimes, just like humans! Either way, we love them just the same.
If you are coming by to find out some information regarding what rats eat, then we can help with that too! There are many things that rats should eat and things that they shouldn’t eat, which every new and seasoned rat keeper should be aware of. We’ll even release recipes for you guys to try at home! If you have any recipes you would like to recommend, we’d be happy to share them with the other readers!
I myself have over 14 years of experience with pet rats, and there isn’t much that I have not come across. I have raised many different litters. I have even performed plenty of rescues. I’ve been through tragic losses, and am always here for anyone to talk with. Drop in and ask us questions; we might just write an entire post to answer your questions! I have answers from breeding to introduction issues; no matter what is going wrong, we will try to help. Thank you all for visiting, and please poke around; you never know what crazy things you will find here!
Are You a Rescue Organization? Need Help?
If you are a rescue, we would LOVE to help spread word among readers, raise awareness for the public, and assist with any other favors that you might need. All animals and rescues are a soft spot with me; and this is ESPECIALLY true of pet rats. If I can even help just one ratty soul find his or her permanent, loving spot in this world, I’m definitely up for the task. I wouldn’t think twice about it!
