    Cleaning a cge too often will make rats stress out, and can make them sick.
    Males will also secrete a stinkier marking scent MORE OFTEN when you clean it too much.
    Once every six-seven days will keep a cage clean and happy.

    All your videos make me sick.
    I wouldn’t trust you with any of my pets, when you can’t even take care of yours properly.

    This is a terrible video. If you use the right kind of bedding (aspen or recycled paper) it won’t irritate your rats skin or eyes. Wire cages are fine – They don’t hurt your rats’ feet. Also this video did not mention the important things to look out for – Tumours around your rats armpits or groin are very common especially in females. And respiratory infections are very common in rats so listening to your rats’ breathing is the best way to detect those.

    Why aren’t toothbrushes good for rats?

    ‘rats generally do not get sick’ Uhm… Rats often get sick, most often they get tumors. I’ve never heard about brushing rats teeth, they should be orange or the rat is not healthy. Brushing is not needed. They clean their tails themselves. Resperatory problems are also common.

    You obviously don’t know much about rats.
    You shouldn’t go making videos with rats you have only kept for a week. Having a week of rat experience does not warrant you to make misleading rat videos, especially following this woman’s advice.

    Brushing rats teeth?? I was many years ago a fancy rat breeder and I never once had to brush their teeth. If they have a proper diet of foods to help keep their teeth worn down they should never have to have dental care. Rats don’t have human teeth that get coated in plaque. This woman should not be telling others how to care for rats. If you look at her other videos they are even worse!

    Um I dont mean to put u down here, but most rats are born with respiratory problems. But most rats can live happily while still having a lung disease…. untill they get old and are unable to fight it off anymore. true. 🙁

    I think she’s making a lot up as she goes along. Rats get tumors. 70% of unspayed females will get cancer tumors. Two of mine did. You have to find a vet who will treat “exotic” pets or pocket pets. Many vets don’t even spay or neuter rats, don’t know how. It costs more to spay a rat than a cat or dog. They don’t get vaccines, though. They can get respiratory disease pretty easily. If you visit a pet store, if you come home within 4 hours, you can spread respiratory disease to your rat at home.

    It’s annoying that people who criticize rats, can’t say too much about them because they never had one. But they hate them anyway. I just bought a rat, I had one before, but it was over 4 years ago. Your videos helped me alot – I forgot what it’s like to have a rat that don’t know you yet, and you can’t just take it out of it’s cage whenever you want. She’s a little different than the one I had before, so I was afraid that she may be sick, but it’s bust her personality. 😉 Thank you for your vid
