Information about Rats in the Rats Webshop
Rats are very intelligent animals and very attached to their caretaker. You can build a real bond with a Ratje. They are also real group animals and should therefore be kept together.
A Rat's housing must be spacious. Also because they must be kept with at least two animals, the cage must be at least 80 x 50 x 80 cm
PLAY WITH RATS
Rats are busy little animals and they love to lie in a hammock. The cage must therefore be provided with sufficient play material so that the animals can lose their curious nature and energy. A hammock is almost a must for a Rat. They love to sleep together high in the cage in a hammock.
SOIL COVER FOR RATS
It is best to choose a dust-free bedding for Rats. They have sensitive airways and can quickly become bothered by dust. A good ground cover is, for example, Back 2 Nature.
NUTRITION FOR RATS
Only give food that is really specifically tailored to the nutritional needs of the Rat. Only then can you be sure that your pet gets everything it needs.
