    coolaces, you need to get at least 2, they need to be kept in at least
    pairs, theyre very sociable.

    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
    other rats.

    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.

    @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.

    @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.

    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.

    @MaddieVinson1998 It would be best if you get a same sex pair. And you
    should go the adoption or breeder route. ๐Ÿ™‚

    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

    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*
