    New Rattie Pics(One in labor!)

    I had to take some pics of them tonight as one litter is ready to go next week and I didn't have any pics of them for their ad. I also noticed that the rat next to them was in labor and frantically trying to get comfortable to sleep. Poor girl looks like she's going to pop any moment. The rest of the rats wanted their pics taken due to jealousy lol. The pictures are all pretty bad since the rats were quite active today and don't have plans on being models.

    Skunk is adorable.
    I really want a male to breed with oreo, but they only sell females and pet smart. It sucks

    That is what they told me when I got Ice there but then we came back almost 2 months later and all they had was male rats. That was when I got Skunk and Zombie. Keep an eye out for them, rat breeding is tons of fun and a good experience...

    Morganshow11, you can't even afford one rat! Why the h*ll do you think you can afford to breed!? That's at LEAST three cages (aren't you still saving for one cage), food and bedding for a possible 20 rats, plus the possible medical bills if something goes wrong. Plus, pet store rats SHOULD NOT BE BRED. They are nott well bred and have many issues with tumors, and are more prone to general illness then a well bred rat. They have shorter life spans too.

    And what wil you do with the babies? It's not easy to find homes, why do you think rat rescues are over flowing. There is a good chance your only option would be to sell them for snaik food. ""There's nothing wrong with that,but are you willing to do that?

    I think that goes to all those who breed pocket pets.

    I will NEVER buy from a Pet Store. And I will NEVER buy from a breeder.

    I ony go to rescue's. Or Adopt.

    There is no reason to breed pocket pets.

    I actually disagree, I do think there is reason for WELL bred pocket pets. As in show quality rodents with pedigrees going back several generations and no history of tumors or other health problems in that line.

    I have a few well bred mice and I have to say, it's nice to have long lived rodents that actually live long, healthy lives.

    OTOH, those are the ONLY animals worth breeding in all species from horses down to mice. Pet store animals meet none of those requirements
