Hi Richard
                Great ya found us here :~) I've had pet ratties for years &
their perfect pets.
Give ya rats as much room & companionship as possible.  Try having 2 not
have them single.
The males are lazier than the females in general.  Make up things for them
to explore out of old boxes & items at home.  Mine run around the room for
hours on end, when we get home from work, also when we take the dogs out we
put 'em in our shirts to take them with us.
Foods not a problem as they'll eat almost anything, the saying is 'if a
rattie won't eat it, it's not worth eating ya self' :~)  They also like
different levels in their cages with ladders or pipes to them.  I converted
an old wardrobe into a multi-level house for 'em.  Best of all though is to
give them as much attention as poss. as they love humans that are good to
'em.  They drink alot so provide plenty of easily accessible water.  Just
experiment with 'em, you'll soon find their likes & dislikes, they'll tell
ya :~)  If ya need any further advise, either post here or email me, theirs
always something to talk about with rats, their very mischievous :~)
