I HAVE BEEN TAKING A LEAVE OF ABSENCE FROM ALL EXPERTS due to illness in the family.

New to AllExperts as of December 03,2006. I'm looking forward to helping you with your Pet Rat questions. I've had experience in all areas of care so I can answer questions on wild rats, the history of pet rats, training and behavior, rats in the media (care books, fiction, movies, on the internet), Holistic care as well as health issues, breeding, sexing babies, types of rats, colors of rats, general care, food and treats, cages, bedding, toys and entertainment, etc. I cannot possibly know everything about pet rats but I have some very reliable resources to help me answer your questions. I cannot answer questions on genetics. I still go by phenotype to identify my rats. My website: Sandra Beasley and the Spaz Rats http://spazrats.tripod.com

I can answer a variety of questions regarding adoption and care of pet rats throughout their lifetimes, including questions about their health and well being, temperment, diet, bedding, cages, toys, etc. I will try to answer your questions to the best of my ability in a timely manner and I have an abundant amount of resources to help me to help you with your pet rats. I love rattie pictures, so include pics with your question if you can. You may ask me medical questions, but please be advised that I am not a vet. I may use my resources to answer some medical questions, however, I will need to refer you to your local vet with medical questions that I feel I am not qualified to address.

2015-03-09 What's wrong with my pet mouse:

Hi Vipi,  First, is he a mouse or a rat?  Because you used both words. A mouse or rat needs to be handled a lot as a tiny baby to bond to people and want to interact with them. It sounds like your boy
