Rat Questions?

Post by sharksmout » Mon, 11 Oct 1999 04:00:00



Hi there,

Could anyone please try and answer a few questions I have about my new
pet rat.  I got him about three weeks ago and I think (or so the shop
said) he is about 8 weeks old.  This is my first rat and most books I
read don't answer these few points.

Question 1:
I have had my rat for about 3 weeks now, when I got him his eyes were
RED and now they are BLACK?.  Is this normal?

Question 2:
My rat chatters (grinds?) he's teeth a lot.  Is this normal?

Thanks for taking the time to answer as I am a little worried.

I  love  it  when  I  have  conversations  with  my  rat  and  he  gets  so
exited  that  his  eyes  wobble   :~)
