Over the last 10 years, ive always had pet rats. Sure they are not the most ideal pets for some, but I personally always enjoyed having them around. They done need much care and you can feed them just about anything. I haven't needed to use my garbage disposal in quite a while. Lol. Sadly, yesterday two my rats passed away within minutes of eachother. It was pretty violently too. I dont know what they got into, but they both started urinating blood and having convulsions. They very rarely left the cage except when I would let them loose in the bathtub to go swimming for a while or they would sit on my shoulder. They never got anything except store bought rodent food and vegetables. Ive looked online for answers and nobody seems to have any input but it is not uncommon for this to happen with rats. Curios to know if anyone has had experience with rodent pets and similar situations?
