hows the gang doing? rats are very smart, i like the largest ones, the bigger the better and cuter! but i like the girls the best (just oin case you even care) lmao i got pictures of dante up, and my gerbil has been scratching his nose , i think its a respatory thing, so i put in in a wire cage.
thank you for the help. i bought a female rat thinking she would be nice because females do not have that smell from marking their territory, atleast i believe so. you probably could tell me if they do. but when i my friend was taking her home in her box, she got out! i was devistated. i went to search for her all day but couldnt find her. and yes mice do smell very bad. and my gerbil momiji lives alone and seem to be doing fine. he seems like a she so i dont dare to put her with another. petco doesnt always have their sexes right. one time my brother got a "boy" hampster and babbies where everywhere!
hey. actually i have rats now lol. 4. i dunno how a male mouse smells,never had one. but i heard its quite pungent. my rats do mark their territory (including me!!) so there is a slight smell but its not bad at all. if you completely clean their cage,all new hammocks,toys,blankets,they will re-mark which will smell a bit. as long as you keep some of their slightly already marked stuff in there.its all good. plus as with gerbils,they are social animals and need at least one friend. else they will get lonely,depressd,sick and die early.
