"I bought my daughter two male rats late July 2013, one hairless which was 1 month and a white one which was 3 months. Took them to the vet 2 weeks later once I found a vet that took exotic pets. They got a clean bill of health. On Thursday around 5pm I went to do my daily cleaning of the cage, change the liter pan daily and feed them and fresh water, I notice the hairless which is Rascal was just laying in his hut. This is not normal for him because we call him our hyper boy. He was cold as ice, tried warming him up with heating pad and took him to the vet on Friday. The vet couldn't tell if he had phenomena she would have to get an x- Ray and she said that was not a guarantee account of rats can't hold there breath and he is to sick to sedate. So she gave me medicine for Rascal that was sick and for Ratouille to take as well for 2 weeks. Rascal died Saturday 2/1/14 and my daughter was so upset. I put him in the cage for his buddy to see he had passed but he didn't seem to care he just wanted out to play. Ratatouille is showing no signs and I am a little bit worried on getting another friend for him because I don't want him to get sick. I am not looking to have Rats forever, thought this would be a great first pet for my daughter . If I get a young rat I would be facing with that one being alone after Ratatouille passes and if I try to get an older rat and they don,t get along then I am face with 2 rats being alone. I have the critter nation 3 story cage which I can pull up one of the ladders and it turns out to be 2 cages. So my question is what would be the best for ratatouille with out investing in another cage and can I quarantine in the bath room tub? Please help."
