So I went to the local pet store and I was doing really good about not picking out any new mice and then I saw the rats. Now I'm not a rat person but I could tell this little girl was rather young and wasn't doing so hot so me being me I had to take a closer look and she was much more active and in better physical condition than I thought she would be so I purchased her. I'm hoping she'll do fine if she doesn't have to compete with ten other rats for food or water. I've only had her a few hours but I'm already very attached to her. Can anyone give me a hand in figuring out her age and let me know if you think she should be getting anything special food wise. I know it's a female,and a black hooded (I think). Also if anyone knows any good groups similar to this one on rats a link would be greatly appreciated.
