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