Starting this blog was not just a way for me to write regularly and a place to upload my thousands of rat photos – though it can be those things too – my intention was also to share information on proper care of rats and to show what awesome pets they are.
Honestly, it took me a while to finally decide to blog about my rats, because I didn’t feel I had much to add. And for that reason, I am not going to repeat all the wonderful information available on other sites already – I still consider myself a learner and not an expert on rat care. So this blog will be mostly stories, photos and personal experiences with my rats, which I hope will be informative to a certain extent, and give anyone who has not had pet rats a glimpse into what they are like.
But I would still like to share information – sharing of knowledge is my favourite thing about the internet! So I have added a Rat Care page, which includes some links to great, informative websites, along with a copy of my basic rat care flyer – you are welcome to download the printable version or share the image online if you like it.
There is a pet expo coming soon in my home town and my vets, who will have a stand there, have been kind enough to allow me to give them some rat care flyers, which they will distribute along with their info packs. This flyer is a joint effort with members of the Ratanooga forums, who all love their rats madly and want to tell the world how awesome their little fuzzbutts are.
