Just make sure to not breed. There are already many, MANY homeless rats in shelters and rescues. The only people who should be breeding rats are people who have been mentored, and who have rats with AT LEAST a five generation pedigree.

If you want to keep both males and females, be sure to spay/neuter both sexes.

But those are homes that could have adopted homeless rats.

Even if the rats you are breeding seem healthy, you have absolutely no idea what's in their genetics and lineage - thus why breeding rats with pedigrees is so important. Everything needs to be taken into account. Just putting a male and female together is extremely irresponsible.

No you are wrong.My rats are fine.
Some people care for pets diffrently than others.Did you just come here to say that you are some how better than others?On a trip much?


Not every one wants to adopt a rat from a shelter.

On a trip? What? I don't think I'm better than anyone.

Actually, I'm not wrong. Breeding just for kicks is morally wrong. You have no idea what kind of lives you're bringing into the world and what sort of ailments they might have to cope with.

You should read these. They explain breeding ethics. Don't just blow me off because you're defensive.

Are you a vet?
Seems like your just some person who likes to go to rat forums and Tell others how to care for their animals.So what you bought two $300.00 cages and all that stuff.Most of the babies go to be feeders.You dont want the shelter rats to go for that do you?Other animals have to eat too.The male and female I keep are also pets as well as breeders.

At this moment in time, I am not a vet. It doesn't take a degree to be knowledgable and well-educated in correct care for animals.

What does my cage and how much it cost have to do with anything?

Yes, reptiles and other rat-eating animals need to eat too! But they need to be fed pre-killed, frozen rats/mice - NEVER live. It's traumatizing for the prey (obviously), and the predator can also get harmed or even killed.

If you're saying it's not what you want your animals to go to... why do you continue the process? Killing rats you bring into the world and then selling/trading them to reptile owners... why not just keep pet rats? Why do you breed and sell poor feeders? Sad

You breed them so my rats/rescue rats don't become feeders? That makes no sense at all. There are hundreds, maybe even thousands, of places online and off that reptile owners can order pre-killed, frozen animals from. You don't need to be breeding feeders.

It's such a conflict of interest... how can you say you love rats, but kill them and trade their dead bodies to people? That's so heartless.

Because they're living beings. They're not property or things you can make money off of.

First off rats are not ours to 'own'. We're lucky to be able to share our lives with them, and it's our responsibility to care for them in the best way possible. A rat is no more your property than a child.
