Hi, I ended up adopting three male kittens and they are wonderful. Thanks to everyone who gave me info. I have another question (to you and others if they know). Two of the boys are always together, but there is one who always seems excluded. He doesn't sleep with them and he seems more timid in general. Is this normal? What can I do to help his brothers include him? (They are from the same litter). Is he avoiding them? Or are they avoiding him? — la-fille-qui-dort
Can anyone help here?
It sounds like a dominance thing but unless you’ve seen any actual displays of it then maybe the other rat just likes being alone?
I agree with the last comment. Discharge like that is most likely cancer. She needs to be spayed immediately. There is a chance that the cancer will have already spread, but it's really one of only two options available, and the other isn't worth considering until you know more. Good luck x — emperorvonbears
Hope my little Lua’s better soon so she can get back to snuggling Snug :((
i know a lot of my friends don’t understand why i care so much about taking pictures of my rats
i guess i don’t either, truthfully
but i know that in a few years when i don’t have audrey in my life anymore, i’m going to be really grateful i was able to capture all those mundane-but-still-inexplicably-special moments, like audrey peeking out my boyfriend’s shirt while he does work
