Weekly Rat Facts: Human Foods

Rats need not only their own bagged rat food but they also need some fresh foods and cooked foods. This is steamed white rice mixed with 2 tablespoons of canned corned beef hash. The boys loved this for dinner. Don't let the size fool you, this is a very small plate and it's feeding several rats. 

Lucky knows when I'm cooking dinner that he'll be getting a little something as well and he sits at the front of the cage giving me this look. *food?*

As well as steamed white rice, I give my rats fresh fruits and vegetables, cooked noodle, boiled eggs, and little bits of other things that I make for dinner. 

In order for a rat to have a balanced diet they need the additional fresh fruits, vegetables and other foods. Plus, wouldn't you get bored eating the same thing day after day? They do too. 


  1. Time for food, he sure knows it

  2. He definitely looks as if he's ready for a treat.
