All about rats! Laurie Routhier from the San Francisco SPCA shares some very helpful information about rats; what to feed them, what their habitat should be …
this is really cool and i have 4 rats and i need help
I plan on catching a sewer rat for a pet.
bror maybe needs you’r help xD
my rat is never active
What TYPE of pellet food do you recomend?
coolaces, you need to get at least 2, they need to be kept in at least
pairs, theyre very sociable.
there is a bird at 2:39 like if you it is thinking about eating the rat on
@summer751 i’ve noticed all expert village videos are awful haha…every
single topic they mess up xD
Better than expert village and ehow aswell ! :3
seeds make them fat
An easier thing to do it to put a brick under the water bottle, it
naturally files the nails.
They should have lab blocks 24/7, and if you feed them little meals like
this woman, leave the food there for a couple hours then take out what they
don’t eat, mostly so it doen’t stink up the cage.
One of the best advice videos. The only thing I would add is that even you
have hours and hours to devote to your rat, rats should always have at
least one cagemate. Rats are social animals and need the companionship of
@TobyRanelle atually I wouldnt advise it. ithasto much protein ada few
ratsta my family hae owned have died from tumors or pocketsof excesspotien
on teir necks.
Hey check my rat cage is even BIGGER THAN THAT and home made!!
i just got a baby rat 4 $12 awsome!!!!
@EveryoneEatsShit Rats ARE fun and smart. They’re easier to train to do
things then guinea pigs
Who said any of us live in a apartment cause i sure as hell don’t
You don’t need to cut them because they grind them. The only time they
would need to be cut would be if they were not aligned or the rat had very
bad mouth pain.
Lettuce is not good for rats
I cant wait to get my rats now! there so cute!! What bedding do you use i
know you cant use sawdust or woodshavings and i cant use fleece what would
be best?? thankyou!
My rats like carrots.
Question I bought a rat off of Craigslist hes 1 years old but hasnt been
with any other rats how to do introduce him to a new male?
@ThoronRhyusan Even if they get a lot of human interaction everyday, it is
necessary for them to have a companion of their own species. Really, two
rats are no more work than one.
I agree, sounds like we use the same food. Besides, rats are omnivores,
they need more than just pellets.
make sure you get two rats or more
@MaddieVinson1998 My first rat lived by itself for a few months because my
parents wouldnt let me get him a cage mate. It literally was dying of
loneliness. It developed a multitude of illnesses and lost a lot of weight.
He also went somewhat nuts. A rat should never live alone.
oh my gosh i love this lady !! she is amazing ( btw im not being creepy im
a 12 yr old girl ) but…. she so convinced me to get rats . i watched this
a year ago… and i did like a year ago lol THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!
@simplyanimal4 srry that thumbs down was an accident
At first I was hell bent against rats. I didn’t like anything about them
then my science teacher had a litter (18 of them!). She said if they didn’t
get adopted out she was going to give them to another student to feed to a
snake so then I adopted Joey. He was still a baby and I just couldn’t say
no. I wish I would of gotten him a friend but my dad wouldn’t budge. He was
the best pet I have ever had and has recently passed. Don’t knock something
til you try it people.
I love my rat and I have 5 of them
Her voice is the cutest thing ever, second to rats. Great information, in a
sea of awful misinformation all over Youtube. I wish I had her job!
I really want some rats.
@MaddieVinson1998 It would be best if you get a same sex pair. And you
should go the adoption or breeder route.
And I’ve heard that the huts get moldy really quick.
I have two hamsters right now and i might be getting a rat soon if i can
convince my parents. I was wondering if it would be ok to get a cage ment
for more then one rat and have one of the hamsters live with the rat?
@GayGamerAU Actually you must potty train and tame young even old rat just
don’t let them out until they are potting in one area either a litter box
or whatever works but female rats can’t hold pee very well for long times
so don’t put rats on your shoulder until a few months
I’m getting two for my birthday in October. 😀
They grind the teeth against eachother.
This is a pretty good video! The only thing is that rats dont really need
things to chew on because they grind their teeth, *bruxbrux*
i think rats can eat anything. look at the wild rat they do. unless they
dont like it!!
i love how people use their “connections” to threaten other people online.
My rats wont eat pelets
@summer751 you can say that again
