    My pet rat had a tumour removed this afternoon, and was all well and good.

    But a few hours ago i saw she had chewed all the stitches out and had a huge bloody open wound, it was horrible :( Had to rush her to the emergency vet, got lost, then nearly ran out of petrol, finally got there and they're going to keep her overnight, so all is ok...

    We had to keep the wound closed in the car, and bandaged her up, here's a picture :)

    People think rats make bad pets but honestly, they are the most lovely sociable, loyal, intelligent little things, VERY clean, litter training them is easy. They're mischievous, and funny, i've had cats all my life and i've never been closer to an animal than i am with her. It's like having a really small dog.

    LOL

    Show some respect bro, just cos you probably ain't close to an animal doesnt mean other people are not! I have dog and i love her as if she is a family member .. may seem stupid but you can get pretty close to animals (Some people too close :eek:)

    I hope she is ok mate!

    Besides stepping on and pissing on the keyboard, yeah she's a great keyboard companion, sleeps upside down in your lap, grinding her teeth (what they do when they're happy)

    I used to keep stick insects as a kid :confused: nowhere near as cool lol

    With all the hospital bills - wouldn't it be just cheaper to buy a new one?
    They are like $5/each only.

    The lack of respect from some of the BHW users seems to always amaze me. Sure, it isn't a person but obviously the dude loves the animal.

    Dude that is absolutely cool as hell...my girlfriends kids have 2 rats and they are pretty cool....but American rats don't look anything like that rat. WTF kind of rat is that? Looks more like a Chinchila....now that's a pet I really want. Hope your rat gets well soon. Does he have a name by the way?

    Yeah but animals aren't people. It's kind of sickening how animals have become a protected class.
