The rats have several water sources. Why do they drink from just one until it’s empty making me feel guilty? :((
I have read that newspaper is safe / and not safe for small furries. The rats have it on the cage floor and also ripped up as bedding. I have ordered some unprinted newspaper (also known as chip shop paper) just in case. Opinions out there?
George the gerbil is currently burrowing in a mixture of megazorb and carefresh. Does anyone have further ideas of good safe burrowing substrate?
Cannot seem to get Teddy’s toilet right for him. He had picked a corner and used that. That’s good, I would pick up the soiled stuff and throw some clean down. Then he stopped peeing there.
Then he was peeing in his sand pit - that’s fine, so I throw the soiled sand away and replace with back to nature pellets (which are easier to clean up and frankly cheaper). Now he won’t go in there.
Almost like he likes it dirty.
Can I be too clean, should I leave it soiled? But I must spot clean daily, it’s the law!
Mum to ratties Bosley, Ruby, Emily and Jean, Teddy the hamster and George the gerbil.
Never forgotten - my lovely fancy mice Jill, Kate, Eve, Kris, Sabrina, Dylan, Kelly, Abby, Tiffany, Natalie and Alex and wild mice Harry and Wills and Charlie the gentle-man Rat.
