filmsandnewmedia said: HELP!!! I don't know if you can help me, but one of my rats just ate the outer layer of an iron supplement. Not the whole thing, but the casing and then probably some of the inside stuff as well. Do you think I should call a vet? Has something similar ever happened to you? Can you please tag me if you answer publicly so I can see your reply? Thankyou

Hi there, I’m so sorry! I’d not have a clue whether iron overdose is a major problem or not - I’ll post this so hopefully maybe a follower will know!

I’d like to mention

Sometimes the formatting of the caption looks off under the image (for example occasionally it’s not in italics). It’s not that I’ve forgotten, sometimes Tumblr seems to remove the italics on a post so that will be why they won’t show up.

Also, occasionally I get the picture wrong or the caption wrong, that’s just my mistake. Most of the time I spend an afternoon making all the submissions and then just slowly uploading them all, so things can get a bit messy and I apologise if I mess up a submission and forget to put the correct name on it.

To make up for it, here’s a picture of my three young boys so you can squee over ratty cuteness :) -

"My rats don’t need to go to the vets because wild rats live happy lives without needing to go" - I think that the common misconceptions about the difference between wild rats and domestic rats are a problem for every rat owner!
